Saucony Launches Candy Bar-inspired Sneakers

sauconycandybar.jpgSaucony recently previewed a candy bar inspired pack at BRIGHT Frankfurt. The Saucony Shadow 6000 is the base sneaker style. Then they took inspiration from Reese's, Kit Kat and Snickers in the colors. We're digging the Kit Kat designs the most.

Ojon Rare Harvest Takawa "Ball" - Chocolate as Exfoliating Treating

ojonball.jpgI think it is safe to say that anyone reading CandySnob has a strong affinity for chocolate. But is that affinity strong enough that you would rub a giant dark chocolate ball on your body to treat your skin?

Enter "The Ojon Rare Harvest Takawa "Ball" - sold at Sephora and other cosmetics stores.

The Ojon Site describes it as:

"A powerful antioxidant-rich, cleansing full-body scrub treatment.

Ojon® Tawaka™ "The Ball" contains a high dose of wildcrafted Ojon® oil, rich in essential fatty acids, Omega-3, 6 and 9; Omega-3 fatty acids are essential components for skin's functioning. Omega-6 fatty acids are essential components of skin's structure. A deficiency of these essential fatty acids is the most common and can cause dry, flaky skin.

This exclusive skin smoother is inspired by a ball only available in the Tawaka™ villages found in the remote tropical rainforest of Central America - that is, until now. Ojon® offers you this luxurious beauty sphere for use in your very own home. Ojon® Tawaka™ "The Ball" is produced in small batches, with each ball taking up to 2 days to produce.

A beautiful fact: The rare, wildcrafted Tawaka™ Cacao blend in "The Ball" contains the same antioxidant amount as 2,834 lbs of blueberries!"

The folks at NOTCOT bought one and used it. Their take? Feels like chocolate, smells like dark chocolate (awesome), and not sweet to the tastebuds (try this at your own risk...). Once wet, the ball makes little nibs of chocolate which act as the massaging skin treatment.

New Candy from Hershey - Spunow Bar, Delicious Coconut Covered in Dark Chocolate

spunow-3.jpgThis post from Blogadilla is just too funny. Should Candy Snob do a review of Spunow bars?

"In a gas station today. The candy bar doesn't scan, so the cashier holds up the bar and, in a thick accent, calls to the other employee:

"Spunow is same price as Snickers?"

It took me and the other employee about a minute to get what she was talking about."

Fat Pig Chocolate - Calling it like they see it...

fat pig 1.jpgHad enough of the 100 calorie packs, low carb, lite, blah blah blah...malarkey that candy companies use to try and get you to feel better about stuffing your face with delicious candy? If the answer's yes, then you'll appreciate Fat Pig. A chocolate company that makes no bones about calling it like they see it when it comes to true chocolate lovers.

It looks pretty good, it is "oinkganic" afterall. They have great packaging, and an irreverent style that I'm sure is going to garner them equal parts accolade and criticism - but my guess is that's exactly how they'd like it. In case you can't read what the back of the chocolate piece says in the photo, it will give you a basic idea of their approach:


Get your snout in this. Shove every single square in your face right now. And do it quick, or some other fat pig might ask you for a piece. Oink, oink!

Hello people at Fat Pig...if you're out there and can hear me...we at Candy Snob need to review this chocolate...throw us a bone and send us some. Pretty please!

Packaging for Gourmet Confections Company Route 29, Napa

route29_packaging.jpg
A bold and fun new look to unify the historic brand ('historic' being a relative term to the Napa locals we're assuming).

"Our caramels and chocolates have never looked so tasty," said Route 29, Napa owner Kim Kalan.
