I know just last week I said we were gonna cut back on reviewing candies that are hard to find.
But that was LAST year. I simply have to share these:
There’s not too much to these hard candies, aside from the fact that they taste EXACTLY like they should : spiced/mulled cider. Ever drink that? I rarely do, but I always love it on the few occasions I can get my hands on some.
These candies are special, because the flavors are so extremely pronounced. You clearly get mulling spices, cinnamon, orange, a bit of clove, and a lot of complex roundness that floored me when I first tried one.
If you had asked me if I wanted a bag of candies that were this flavor, I likely would have said no, but these proved me wrong. It also made me angry, once again, that we are so incredibly LAME in America that we very rarely ever go outside the norm for candy flavors. When Blue Raspberry was introduced in the 80′s, the creativity stopped.
These won’t be for everyone, but if you’re a hard candy aficionado, you need to try these. But CAN you?
No. Not unless you live in Germany, apparently. I looked for a LONG time and couldn’t find a link to buy these anywhere. For this I apologize, but not really. I tried.
Onwards and upwards, and Happy new Year!
