If you ever listen to me about anything, read this review. If you listen to low bit rate MP3s, then you also need to read this. If you already eat Rowntrees Pick & Mix and listen to lossless music, then..I have nothing to learn ya on.
When my fantasies all came true the other day ... which started with Haribo sending me an email saying "can we send you candy?" and me sending one back saying, "Uh YAH." ... and then the candy arrived and angels started singing...I just ripped ope the bag and dug me right in! And then? hmmmm
Dammit if the Dutch aren't just super right on. They make great licorice. They aren't afraid of really pushing anise. They don't pretend to cater to children. They play to adults. And they use salt. Like all good cooks.
These taste like purple, and it's perfectly logical for today's candy enthusiast to only want authentic, all natural, chardonnay-esque, only organic, non-fructose, raw cane grape candy. I feel you. But personally I love fake grape.
The fine people at Wonka sent us a bunch of sweets, half chocolate and half non-chocolate- I'm putting away the dark cocoa mistress and burying my gob into some fruity chewy type treats. Do they live up to the Wonka legacy?
I have never quite had anything like it. The nougat really is great, crispy, crunchy, sweet with a touch of honey flavor. There is almost no tooth stick unlike what I was expecting and the fantastic almonds are muey plentiful and somehow sweet – I think – could be the nougat. They boast a 63% almond content. There is a weird paper on both sides of the bar – something like rice paper – but it didn’t really bother me.
