We are kicking things off with this flakey treat from the UK. Twirl is pure chocolate flakes that are dipped in more milk chocolate. The flakey chocolate melts in your mouth almost instantly and we know from previous milk chocolate from the UK, it is purer because it is made with less wax. Twirl comes in pairs much like a Twix bar. Break off a piece, put in on your tongue and get ready for some melty, flakey, milk chocolate.
If you’ve never tried Stroopwafels then you have really been missing out. What we have here is known as Dutch syrup waffle. Specifically, you will dine on two layers of baked dough filled with a caramel-like syrup. These Stroopwafels are all the rage in The Netherlands. You can find them baked fresh in the Dutch markets. We can consider this the Dutch version of street food! A fun fact is that Stroopwafel has been known to be enjoyed in a certain way. Usually, the Dutch set these treats over a hot beverage so that they can be enjoyed warm!
Yes, we said Hershey so we are definitely talking about our neighbours to the south. Lots of candy and chocolate are made in America and we get to take advantage of all of them. Mounds is a dark chocolate bar stuffed with coconut. This is not a sprinkle of coconut we are talking about here, this is chunky “mounds” of island fruit wrapped in a dark chocolate coating. Definitely worth a taste.
If you don’t love the taste of cotton candy, then you just shouldn’t be here! Carnivals, circuses, festivals are always enjoyed best with fluffy cotton candy. These cotton candy flavored Shock Rocks give you the fun pop on your tongue with that real cotton candy flavor.
Talk about chewy! Dots are a staple of American confectionary since 1945 and we see them on many different holidays including Halloween and Christmas. Dots Tropical include 5 new flavors of gummies including: Island Nectar, Wild Mango, Paradise Punch, Grapefruit Cooler and Carambola Melon. All of these new flavors and colors are incredibly tasty. Enjoy them!
Taste the crunchy cookie flavor of Pepero! This Korean staple by the popular Lotte company is one of simplicity and tradition, much like the Japanese Pocky treats. These milk chocolate coated sticks of cookie are enjoyed best with a glass of milk and some friends!
Another treat from across the pond. Don’t be fooled by the small package, these Chewits are packed with a burst of real fruit and are available in tons of different flavors including Black Currant, Apple and Tutti Frutti. You will be tasting either Strawberry or Fruit Salad.
Of course we have to include some items for Easter… It’s only fair! This month on behalf of all the egg hunts out there we have included a juicy bag of either marshmallow crème or cookies and crème eggs. Share them with your friends or stuff your face. The choice is yours.
Only cool people eat pink popcorn and we are bringing it to you in this month’s candy box. Pop these candy coated kernels into your mouth one at a time.
The March Box would not be complete without a sour item. The Airheads Xtremes are caked in sour crystals and this blue raspberry flavor is always a hit. Peel apart these sour and sweet belt strips like you would play with your string cheese.
We saw this and knew we just had to include them in your box. For those of you who love wearable candy then you will be excited to walk into your next public event with some candy to nibble on around your neck. Perfect for awkward breaks in conversation. Make sure to snap a few pics and tag us when you throw your candy necklace around your neck #projectcandybox.
