WE MOVED TO THE NEW TASTYMADNESS.COM
When was the last time you can remember going to the circus and begging your mom and dad for that sweet and sticky fluffy ball of sugar and mixed coloring. In America, we call it cotton candy, and in England it’s called candy floss or fairy floss. Whatever name you call it, it’s sure to make that inner child in all of us happy and your dentist!  Read the rest of this entry »

Fruit Loops Box

WE MOVED TO THE NEW TASTYMADNESS.COM
It’s scary how one box of cereal can define your whole breakfast existence! Kellogg’s Fruit Loops have been around since the early sixties unlike me who was an 80’s baby. Toucan Sam is one of the most recognizable character brands and also has a slogan “Follow Your Nose” that is hard to forget when you have been eating Fruit Loops for as long as I have. So what is it about this cereal brand that still has me all hot and heavy for them after all these years? Read the rest of this entry »

Lollipops

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 »

In-N-Out Burger

It’s hard to believe that in this day and age a company like IN-N-OUT Burger could stay privately held!  A staple as California’s first drive-thru hamburger stand, IN-N-OUT has over 150 locations and has one of the highest customer loyalties in the fast food industry.  The food is great and the service is unmatched is the general consenses I recieve when I ask people what they think of IN-N-OUT Burger.

Ice Cream

While eating my blackened toast this morning, I realized I hated breakfast. This realization made my stomach feel like I had eaten an entire quarry, and no that’s not just because my toast was hard as a rock.

I’m sick of breakfast; I’m sick of toast and butter, I’m sick of bagels and cream cheese, and I’m sick of sugared cereals all the way to healthy cereals that tastes like sandpaper. I’m sick of all of it…

 Except for…The Breakfast Of Champions! Read the rest of this entry »

By Jordan Thompson
WE MOVED TO THE NEW TASTYMADNESS.COM
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

By Jordan Thompson
WE MOVED TO THE NEW TASTYMADNESS.COM
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!
