Candy

Cadbury UK has teamed up with food artist Prudence Staite to create 50 limited edition “Cadbury Dairy Milk Spectacular 7″ bars that will offer seven different Cadbury flavors under one wrapper. In addition to the original Dairy Milk, the bars will feature Oreo, Caramel, Whole Nut, Fruit & Nut, Turkish Delight and Daim bar fillings – each arranged by row so they can be savored as your taste buds demand.

In order to obtain one of these rare bars, interested parties are asked to keep an eye on Cadbury UK’s Twitter feed, which will eventually post the pertinent details. Unfortunately, those in the states will apparently be left out of the offer due to a deal between Hershey’s and Let’s Buy British Imports that ended the import of Cadbury chocolates made overseas.

April is autism awareness month, and the nonprofit New York Collaborates for Autism came up with a Twizzler challenge that looks like it’s a lot more fun than dumping a bucket of ice water on your head.

Basically, two folks have to eat a Twizzler candy together, starting on opposite ends Lady and the Tramp style. Jimmy Kimmel challenged J.J. Abrams, and the Star Wars director obliged by sharing a Twizzler (and some hair) with everyone’s favorite Wookiee.

For the hell of it, someone decided to pit a red hot ball of nickel against a giant jawbreaker to see what would happen. Although it took several attempts and relocation to the inside of a bowl, the blazing ball eventually worked its way clean through, giving us an indication of what it must look like when a volcano erupts in Candyland.

Check it out after the jump.

Once upon a time, there was only the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. It came in one shape and one size and that was all. Now there are big ones, small ones, hearts, pumpkins, and even eggs. If you’re looking for the most peanut butter bang for your buck, redditor Rustid has broken it all down. He measured:

Large Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs
Reese’s Peanut Butter Hearts
Reese’s Pumpkin
Reese’s King Size
Reese’s Snack Size
Reese’s Small Heart
Reese’s Miniature
Reese’s Mini

He took each apart with a scalpel and then used a ruler and a scale to figure out just how much peanut butter was in each candy.

Chef Jacques Lamerde’s Instagram account is full of exquisite, dainty cuisine sculpted into works of art fit for any posh restaurant. Except upon closer examination…yup, that’s totally a Pop-Tart. And wait, is that a Mike ‘n Ike?  His hilarious food porn brilliantly pokes fun at the New Nordic plating techniques with a tag line of “small portions | tweezered everything.”

And the best part of the stylish dish instagram pics are the descriptions:

“RASPBERRY POPTART PARFAIT W/ VANILLA SNACKPACK + GRAPE CRUSH SCENTED GEL AND ENHANCED W/ MIKE N IKES, CRY BABIES AND FRUITY MENTOS.”

Japan has all sorts of Kit Kat flavors that we don’t get in the United States and a lot of them seem like they would be delicious. This one looks questionable. Apple pie and carrot Kit Kats are a new flavor available in Japan for Easter. These limited edition flavors are collectible and even considered lucky so they are pretty sure to be a hit. This is one flavor that Japan can keep.

Finally, the perfect treat for fans of sharks and chocolate. These chocolate Megalodon teeth are cast from actual fossil teeth and come in high quality dark, milk, and white chocolate.

kit kat sandwich

Japan’s already known for having the most unique flavors of Kit Kats and now they’re breaking ground again with a Kit Kat sandwich.

Fast food chain First Kitchen will is behind the cocoction. But, what is a Kit Kat sandwich? Imagine a Kit-Kat topped with whipped cream, sprinkled with orange peel on white bread. Yum.

It even uses a specially made Kit Kat called a “Kit-Kat for Cafe” which is made to be dipped in hot drinks and is a bit crunchier.

Show of hands: how many of you are going to try this at home?

It’s a little off-season, but you’ll want to get these candy bowls now and be ready to scare the kids come Halloween. They’re supposed to be cute, I think, but somehow even characters like Rocket Raccoon and Thor look weird. You’ll probably save on candy, too, since no kid is going to want to reach into a Spider-Man Venom bowl.

Many of these have been around for a while, but Rocket, Venom and Thor are new and expected to ship this month.
