candies are a really difficult thing to sell to me. It's not
often that I go out and buy hard candies, and that's mostly
due to one thing, they're very boring. I guess as a guy who's
eaten hundreds of candies from all over the world I've become
a hard candy snob. When I want a hard candy I want something
new, something creative, something I've never tried before,
and frankly I almost never find that in hard candies. There
is one exception to my hard candy rule, and that's when hard
candies do something really simple, but do it so well that I
can't help but love it. These candies fall into that category.
Let me give you an
example of how much I enjoy these tiny little hard candies.
I have a full drawer full of amazing treats from all over the
world, future reviews. After dinner I'll often go into my drawer
and pull out something to snack on, and to review. For the last
3 nights I've pulled out the same candy again and again, one
simple little hard candy. I won't tell you that I think these
lemon and raspberry candies are the best candy I've ever had
in my life, I've had much more unique candies, but I will tell
you that the flavour and texture of these candies is perfect.
The tartness of the lemon works perfectly with the raspberry
flavour, it’s sour but still subtle. The candy’s
texture keeps it going for a good 10 minutes (about the same
time it takes for my tea to cool down to a temperature I like),
and it doesn’t go sticky, it just stays hard.
While this candy
is not breaking any ground in technology, or uniqueness, it
tastes really good, and it makes me feel really happy after
