M&Ms is ringing in the new year and celebrating Valentine’s Day with a new White Cheesecake flavor that was recently spotted at Walmart by a reader of The Impulsive Buy.

The new product will join the recently announced caramel-filled offering, although there’s no word on how long it will be sticking around. Beyond this, there doesn’t seem to be any reports on how these things taste, so for the time being, buying them will be a journey into the unknown. [click to continue…]

The Amazing Chocolate Workshop has used luxury Italian chocolate to craft a full-size vintage Nikon SLR camera that you can actually own… and eat.

The camera is solid chocolate and was said to require an “insane amount of time to craft, delivering massive levels of intricate detail worthy of a true design classic.” Features include “incredible plastic casing texture effect, ultra-fine aperture lines and intricate dial and winder detail.” They make it seem like it was crafted entirely by hand, but the use of a mold from an actual camera seems more likely.

The only downside, aside from the fact that it doesn’t actually take pictures, is that it looks like a real camera that was salvaged from a shipwreck. Check out additional pics below. [click to continue…]

Oreo has been transformed yet again, although this time it isn’t a weird new flavor. Oreo is now available in candy bar form in the U.S.

The new Oreo Big Crunch Bar consists of an Oreo cookie layer sandwiched between two layers of vanilla creme filling, while the Oreo Chocolate Candy Bar is enhanced with Oreo cookie bits mixed into the filling. Both bars are covered with imported Milka European chocolate.

The new bars are currently available in limited release with a nationwide rollout slated to begin in January.

Hershey has made good on its promise to replace a Kansas State University student’s Kit Kat following a bizarre theft.

After leaving his car for a brief period, Hunter Jobbins returned to find that the Kit Kat in his cup holder had vanished, being replaced by a hand-written apology by a passerby who couldn’t resist the lure of chocolate covered wafers.

Jobbins posted about the incident in a viral Twitter post that soon reached Hershey. To make things good, the company filled his car with 6,500 bars, which Jobbins passed out on his campus.

“It was crazy. I honestly didn’t think any students would show up. I passed out around 4,000 to 5,000 Kit Kats, probably,” he said. But, he made sure to leave himself enough to get him “through the rest of the year.”

Even though the candy was replaced (and then some) Jobbins says he would “love to know who did this!” stating that it would be “his next dream come true”.

Vengeance will be his.
