Candy Girls: Baskin Robbins Soft Candy, Mint Chocolate Chip
Photo by Liz Kellermeyer
The lure of the "New!" tag is hard to resist, even when the candy to which it's affixed seems somewhat appalling. Like chewy ice cream. This is yet another instance where we don't think the candy designers thought very hard about the flavor/texture combination they were creating. Otherwise how would you explain the appeal of turning something cold and creamy into a chewy cube? In any case, we Candy Girls have brave tongues and strong teeth. We aren't afraid of a little sugar and corn syrup and dry milk solids and more corn syrup. Bring it on!
Liz: Wrapped up, they look like calcium chews.
