American Candy Haul #3 | Lifestyle

Hi lovelies, I hope you're well! It's that time of the month again where I review some goodies from across the pond. I am glad this feature has taken off the way it has, as I enjoy writing it (and eating candy of course) and I think it's a fun thing to do. I did something a little different this month and ordered online as I found an amazing website where the candy is SO much cheaper than in my town, I ordered from the website American Soda and after this post if you want some candy- feel free to go check it out their site if you want to see any my previous hauls you can read them here and here. So what does this months haul entail I hear you ask? As it cheaper to purchase I did get a few more bits this month, and I am excited to share them with you!

Razzles: I adore these, from the first one I was hooked they reminded me a little of the bubble gum which you get in the bottom of screwballs from the ice cream van but they are also chewy candy before which is interesting, there are so many flavours in a packet and my favourite was Orange which is surprising as I am usually more of a strawberry sweet kinda person. If you haven't tried these before you should and I know they come in many variations such as sour and tropical which are next on my list to try.

Ice Cubes: Honestly this is chewing gum made in heaven, I could happily eat through a box in about 5 minutes- the gum is cube shaped and the feel reminds me slightly of playdough. When popped in your mouth the flavour is intense but at the same time great, and although it doesn't last very long (but what chewing gum does) it's worth it. The flavour I have is Peppermint and leaves your breathe smelling minty fresh.

Golden Oreo: I had super high hopes for these until realizing they are just an Oreo version of custard creams *sad face* I was expecting something more, but I should of realized by the packaging what they are. Obviously I was underwhelmed by this, but for Americans who don't get custard creams I am sure they loved these!

Candy Corn: I tried Candy Corn whilst in an America as whim as it's as a dollar and was by the till when I was queuing, I did happen to buy a 1kg bag (and another before I went home) I wasn't sure what to expect from it, I was attracted to the bright colours of the candy. When I tasted it I was reminded of the flavour of rock on from the beach but in a softer form, which is amazing who wants to loose their teeth whilst eating rock anyways? I would totally rebuy this over and over!

Chewy Lemon Head & Friends: These reminded me so much of Jelly beans which of course is ALWAYS a good thing, because who doesn't love Jelly beans (I do, I do) they just taste full of flavour, and very yummy and also great as a treat as they're in a small box!
Rating 9/10

Chewy Lemon Head Berry Flavour:
Jelly beans in berry flavours! Although I wasn't as much of a fan of these as I was of the plain ones, they tasted a bit strange with some of the flavours and then others were fab, it's a bit of a mixed bag as far as these are concerned.

  1. I hate the taste of candycorn! But I love that ice cube gum and the traditional flavored lemonheads. Razzles are my Moms fav. candies - she always gets some when she sees them.
