The New Candy Project (Or 12 Candies To Try/Avoid Right Now)

The Serious Eats Team 2 comments

This year, when it came time to think about candy, we asked ourselves, "When's the last time you tried a new candy—just because?" We couldn't remember the last time, and suffice to say we made it our mission to rediscover the joy (and sometimes more disgust than joy) of trying a new candy. Check out all of our experiences here. (Glass of milk suggested.) More

Why Have I Never Tried: Mr. Goodbar?

Carrie Vasios Mullins 28 comments

Maybe I just have a problem with personified candy in general (those M&M commercials where Red is being dragged home by a lady to be eaten are messed up, am I right?), but regardless, Mr. Goodbar, you're dragging that good name in the mud. More

Why Have I Never Tried: Toblerone Crunchy Salted Almond?

J. Kenji López-Alt 13 comments

Toblerone may have finally outdone my beloved Hershey's Symphony bar with their new variant, which includes not only chunks of almonds, but chunks of salted caramelized almonds. More

Why Have I Never Tried: Milky Way Midnight Dark

Erin Jackson 16 comments

Milky Way Midnight Dark features rich, dark chocolate, golden caramel, and vanilla nougat. But what's always appealed to me more is the name itself. This bar sounds sultry, maybe even dangerous. More

Why Have I Never Tried: Lion Bars?

Jamie Feldmar 14 comments

Somehow I'd never seen Lion before, despite its place in the pantheon of beloved British candy bars. Here's what I thought of my first taste. More

Why Have I Never Tried: Fast Break?

Maggie Hoffman 20 comments

When you peek inside a Fast Break, you'll see a thick layer of milk chocolate, filled with a flat base of nougat and a square of peanut butter. The shape of the peanut butter hints at how solid it is. It's more crumbly than creamy, and drier than you might expect, but with a good punch of salty flavor. More

Why Have I Never Tried: Whatchamacallit?

Niki Achitoff-Gray 24 comments

I was a little bit nervous as I peeled back the outer wrapping on my Whatchamacallit bar. Not just because it was uncharted territory, but because there's something about its packaging, its muted earth-tone color scheme, that just screams "1978!" But I don't mean mean 1978 as in the year the line started, I mean 1978 in the Yo-I've-been-sitting-on-this-shelf-since-1978 sorta way. More

Why Have I Never Tried: Goldenberg's Peanut Chews?

Max Falkowitz 25 comments

The Peanut Chew is old timey done right: roasted peanuts are suspended in thick, chewy caramel, then coated in surprisingly good crisp dark chocolate. Consider it, if you will, like a grownup Snickers, all the essentials with none of that nougat mishegas to get in the way. More

Why Have I Never Tried: Crunchie?

Tracie Lee 29 comments

Crunchie is described as "Milk Chocolate with Golden Honeycombed Centre". Honeycomb?! In a candy bar?! I hoped it was going to have a honey flavor in addition to the combination of gooey caramel and crunchiness that I love. More

Why Have I Never Tried: the U-No Bar?

Robyn Lee 5 comments

The wrapper for the U-No describes the candy bar as "RICH CREAMY CHOCOLATE." Nope. What it should say is "DIET CHOCOLATE-FLAVORED FROSTING." More

Why Have I Never Tried: Time Out?

Ben Jay 1 comment

Each bar of Time Out features a milk chocolate ripple sandwiched between two wafers and covered in Dairy Milk chocolate. Or as its original slogan states, "the wafer break with a layer of Flake." Basically, it's one of Cadbury's best products covered in another. What's not to love? More

Why Have I Never Tried: Chunky?

Leandra Palermo 35 comments

The Chunky fascinates me. The name alone made it worthy of my selection. And what about that early 90s outfit it's wearing? Those power-suit pinstripes, that clunky font! Chunky feels no need to keep up with the times—it's confident in its retro-self! More

Why Have I Never Tried: GooGoo Clusters?

Carrie Vasios Mullins 29 comments

When's the last time you tried a new candy? Not a seasonal new release, but an established candy or candy bar that, for no reason in particular, you've never picked up? For the SE staff, that time is now. Each day for the next two weeks we will try a candy we've never had before then tell the tale. First up? The GooGoo Cluster. More
