Candy

1

It appears that the manufacturer of Twizzlers wanted a bigger chunk of the Easter candy market, but couldn’t think of a damn thing associated with the holiday that resembles twisted strands of licorice. That must be why they decided to model their product after that fake basket-stuffing “grass” that looks about as appetizing as the sole of a boot. The green apple-flavored candy comes in loose strands that have been described as disturbingly similar to their grassy inspiration.

If that’s not enough weirdness for the season, Cadbury is also offering limited edition Creme Egg cookies (pictured after the jump), which look like they could be a convenient way to enjoy the holiday staple without ending up permanently sticky from the uncontrollable rush of fondant filling.

Butterfinger bars are delicious, but they’re not exactly healthy. I mean, all that sugar aside, chocolates like these are generally loaded with artificial ingredients—including food dyes and preservatives. However, Nestlé USA is planning on removing these unnatural elements from its chocolate products by the end of this year. Over 250 Nestle chocolate products, ranging from Butterfinger bars to Baby Ruth and 100 Grand bars, will be affected by this change.

If you and your S.O. are planning on pigging out on chocolate this Valentine’s Day, then a chocolate piggie from Tokyo-based candy manufacturers, tutto bene would be the perfect treat. Then again, it might send the wrooooooong message.

Though it’s a Japanese company, the candy makers’ name is derived from an Italian saying that means, “Everything is great.” In keeping with the whole Italian thing, the company makes a variety of chocolates that are pig-shaped, since Italy is (apparently) pretty well known for its pig-themed good luck charms, symbols and trinkets.

The company offers a few different piggie chocolates, but all of them are definitely tasty. The big guy pictured up top is the Gran Siesta, a 2.2-hunk of chocolate that’s made with 35 percent cocoa butter and it’s priced at $68, or 8,000 yen. There’s also the Juliette II, a smaller, tutu-wearing chocolate piggie that costs 600 yen, or roughly $5. Lastly, there’s the Figaro set, which features a mixture chocolate “cuts” that are arranged to look like a butcher’s pork diagram. That one runs for 1,800 yen or roughly $15.

Tell her you’ll give her the moon this Valentine’s Day. Then give her this box of chocolates. Close enough.

It’s got the entire solar system in one box. Each chocolate looks like a different planet so although we can’t travel to them yet, we can at least devour them as sweet chocolates.

These striking chocolates were designed by Oki Sato of Nendo. He was named Designer of the Year by Maison et Objet and made this very special set of 9 chocolates for the occasion.

Each represents a Japanese onomatopoeic word that describes texture. There will only be 400 sets of Chocolatexture made and they’ll be sold during a special event held today in Paris.

Remember back when they messed with Coca-Cola and the world freaked out until they changed it back to its original formula? The folks at Cadbury may have missed that memo as they’ve altered the classic Cadbury Creme Eggs sold in the UK. They’re no longer using Dairy Milk, and apparently the taste is different so people are freaking out.

They’ve also changed the package from holding six to five eggs which makes people doubly angry. We’ll have to see if Cadbury learns from Coke and makes it all right for next year.

See some of the angry customer tweets and Cadbury’s response after the break.

So, we’ve talked about all kinds of 3D printers that deal with food, but this particular version is definitely among the most marketable.

3D Systems, in conjunction with The Hershey Company, unveiled a 3D chocolate printer at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Vegas on Tuesday. The CocoJet can create unique geometric chocolate designs through pre-programmed synchronized printing methods. At this moment, there isn’t any word on when the CocoJet will be available commercially, though 3D Systems does plan on making it available to the public.

But just as a heads up, 3D Systems also has a number of other candy printers (like the ChefJet, which retails at around $5,000, or the ChefJet Pro which comes in at $10,000), so the price tag will undoubtedly scare off most ordinary buyers.

Remember our previous post that highlighted how you can make a gingerbread version of the Millennium Falcon?

Enter the gingerbread Star Destroyer. There’s no way your tastebuds can repel deliciousness of this magnitude!
