Askinosie Chocolate Packaging circa WWII

39_2_.jpgWe covered Askinosie Chocolate back in April, and have now seen some cool packaging for this innovative, artsan chocolate maker. An army ration feel circa WWII to their packaging. Very cool.

Fish "Candy"? - Yukon King Salmon

kingcandy385.jpgIt isn't often you come across candy (or something called "candy") where you need to watch out for bones. But, if you try this Yukon King Salmon from Vital Choice, you better be careful. The key to the rich flavor is the oil content, which is 25-35%. The fish swim for 2,300 miles to spawn, so they eat a lot. Thus the high fat content. Yup'ik Eskimos then take the fish and hand de-bone, brine in salt and organic brown sugar, and smoke using natural alder wood.

The end result, according to the company, is a flavor that is subtly sweet - so much so that Alaskans call this treat "Salmon candy."

I believe we should ask Governor Palin to weigh in on this... :)

Thanks to Expired Foods for the heads up.

Lollipops You Hook To Your Computer Before Sucking

image1.jpgTouted as "The candy that provides you with a sensational new way to see," Eye Candy uses "cutting edge Sensory Substitution Technology to transmit vivid emotive images into your mind's eye."

They come in six flavors ranging from I Can Assert to I Can Focus - each one meant to get you into a certain state of mind - by projecting specially evocative imagary into your field of vision.

They go into more detail about how this works on their site, but suffice is to say that the "lollie" part of the device transmits messages through your tongue, to your brain. And those messages are what put you in a certain state of mind, supposedly.

Durian Candy - Why Does Everyone Hate It So Much?

518873769_0a46493a71_o.jpgWhen you Google "durian candy" the first three links (more actually) will be to negative posts. You'll hear tearms like "stinkbob," and see it on pages of "Bad Candy" or on Top 10 Grossest Candy lists.

What is durian? It's a spiky fruit that is known for it's sweet yet pungent odor.

I'll admit its not a normal candy, but I've had a lot worse. In fact, I like this stuff. It has a nice tropical flavor, I get a lot of coconut. Its not overly sweet, and the pieces I've had have the consistency of a Starburst.

Are there any people out there who like durian candy? Or is it truly a hated candy? Let me know.
