Lollipops

By Heather Blanchette
WE MOVED TO THE NEW TASTYMADNESS.COM
My apartment is my own little candy shop. My roommates and I have a bowl of cookies on the kitchen table, a platter with M&M’s, starbursts and Hershey Kisses next to the TV and an over sized bowl filled with every kind of lollipop imaginable on the bookshelf. Let’s just say CVS and Shaw’s have made quite a bit of money from us this semester.

We have those mini Dum Dum Lollipops, because you can eat three for the same amount of calories as a big Dum Dum (which apparently I thought was amazing when I bought a super sized bag of them). We have Tootsie Roll Pops, and mini Tootsie Roll Pops, and we have those giant round lollipops with crazy flavors like buttered popcorn (gross!). Read the rest of this entry »

The word PEZ comes from the German word for peppermint, which is Phefferminz. If you take the first, middle and last letter of the word you get PEZ. PEZ was Invented in 1927 in Vienna, Austria by a candy man named Edward Haas. Developed as an adult breath mint and an alternative for smoking, Edward Haas created the Haas Food Manufacturing Corporation based out of Vienna, Austria. Haas company was the first to carry the small candy that was shaped like a brick and carried in small tins at the time. Read the rest of this entry »

Movie Theater Popcorn

So today when one of our top writer Heather Blanchette said to me you should write about Movie Candy, I said to myself thats a great idea, I’m glad I thought of it! People are always complaining how going to the movies is to expensive, and how they remember when movie pictures were only 10 cents for an all day marathon! Well I hate to be the one to inform the older generation, but it is 2008 and actors and actresses are making 20 million a picture, so sorry Grandma!

Ben and Jerry's

By Heather Blanchette

WE MOVED TO THE NEW TASTYMADNESS.COM
We’ve been dating for the last six months, we spend every night together, me, Ben and Jerry. There is no other brand of ice cream that I would rather spend so much quality time with. We watch TV together, do homework together, and watch movies in bed together; there is nothing Ben, Jerry and I don’t do. Read the rest of this entry »

Hershey Kisses

I would like to share my first recipe.  This recipe is called “back-up” and have several hundred of these.

It’s 3:00 a.m. and it’s time for a little snack.  Sleeping has gone well up to this point but now  sugar is needed to get through til 6:00a.m. or so.  It’s imperative that you have a night stand for this.  Purchase a bag of Hershey’s Kisses and stick them in the drawer of your night stand.  Upon waking, remove several, I like at least six, open them all at once and shove them all in your mouth.

So what is it about the little bite size sugar infused goodness that is a Skittle?  Well the biggest thing I can say about this little piece of heaven is that there is a Skittle for every kind person.  You have the Original Skittles which are for your average sugar addict, which screams “Hey I like flavor just as much as the next guy or girl, but I’m happy just being original!”  Then you have your Sour Skittles that are so good that they make your tongue go numb and feel like sandpaper.

Butterfinger  

By Clayton Southworth 

WE MOVED TO THE NEW TASTYMADNESS.COM
Butterfinger has been around since 1923!  Any candy bar still in demand since the 1920’s is only popular because it is quality.  I remember growing up and sneaking to the TV when my parents weren’t looking to catch Bart Simpson with his Butterfinger and skateboard.  This type of Butterfinger activity has gone on for generations.  The truth is, no matter how you think of candy, Butterfinger truly is one of the lasting and truly great candies of all time.

You can do anything with a Butterfinger… well, just about anything.  Eating it plain is great.  If you are the creative chef, you can crunch it up and mix it with almost any dessert (all kind of cakes, cookies, ice cream, etc.)  It can serve as toppings, it can also jut be decoration.
