The Big Move

So a little bit of housekeeping for you today instead of a review.

Don't worry more are coming and soon. But today I wanted to talk to you on a bit more of a meta level. Its all good though.

Walking the Candy Aisle is more or less run by me, Geoff, and news that affects me affects the blog. Well, my family and I have decided to move from San Francisco back to our hometown of Toronto, Canada.

There are lots of reason why we're going and it definitely wasn't an easy decision, but the most important reason is that we wanted our kids to grow up closer to their extended family.

I love San Francisco and always will, being here has always meant so much to me, but its time to move on.

I'm not intending this to have too big of an impact on the Candy Aisle blog, but I thought I should let everyone know why all of a sudden I'm talking about Aero, Coffee Crisp and Crunchie bars so much.

I'm changing the format for the next few weeks as well. Starting on Tuesday you'll be getting quick video reviews from mme on the road. No written content, but expect 2 videos a week both here, and on the YouTube channel. And if you're not on that, please go subscribe now.

Thanks for the support all, I'll see you on the other side of the Great White North.

Screme Eggs!

Did I miss this last year, or is this actually new?! Because I LOVE the Cadbury Screme Eggs. What an awesome idea!

I am definitely going to have to get one of these for review here on Walking the Candy Aisle. Everything about it is awesome looking! Green center, "Screme", the soft fondant center, and same great taste, I even love the bunny rabbit in the witches hat.

Pre-review spoiler: I am going to give this a great score :)

Something Wicked this Way Comes...

Now that the Halloween season has officially begun we've got a few new treats to check out. These Disney bags really jump out. Who doesn't love the witch... Scary stuff!

I love how they've tried t match the flavor to the witch. Very cool stuff. And the design work is impeccable. I didn't check out exactly who made these candies, but I am impressed. If only I was a bigger Saltwater Taffy and Candy Corn fan.

My favorite Disney witch is probably the Evil Queen from Sleeping Beauty, but I have a soft spot for all of them. I wonder why Disney has never really worked to market these witches. There is such a huge market for the isney Princesses, you'd think there at least could be a bit of reactionary counter-programming interest in these evil ladies. Other than Maleficent I'm not sure these witches are really that well known.

Anyhow, I'm a fan of these candies. We'll see if I get a chance to try them. If I do get one, it would have to be the Fiery Cinnamon flavor. More Halloween newness coming soon.

Cozy Treats

Alongside the Halloween stuff I saw these new Russel Stover treats that just scream Fall to me. Check these out!

Now I don't know if I've said it on the blog before but I really am a a fan of S'mores,  Maybe not quite as much as some peple I know but I'll definitely have one around a campfire if offered,. As for Pecan Delight... well it sure sounds delightful. I like pecans and really like caramel so this chould be a treat I would enjoy very much.

Don't these snacks just make you want to curl up beside a fire? Maybe with a nice mug of cocoa while the first snow comes down. A brisk and cool Autumn evening where you've decided better than to go out. This is exactly the treat I want in my hand when that happens.

Happy Labor Day all! So I was working in the lab late one night, and I stumbled upon the most awesome remodel ever. By lab I mean candy aisle obviously... Now this isn't up at my local candy aisle yet, but it certainly was at the bigger badder Walgreens down the street. Get ready everyone, its Halloween time!!!

This is a wonderful time of year. Its fun, got costumes, and everyone has a good time. Also there's a ton of candy! I'll be excited to start bringing you some of this candy for review really soon here on Walking the Candy Aisle. Keep your eyes peeled :)

In the meantime let me know whats your favorite Halloween candy?
