Let it not be said that I don't love a classic treat. Let it also be said that I love the fact that so many stores and restaurants all over the place sell old-fashioned treats from so many different eras. Really that's a big part as to why I review treats. With the availability of old treats and treats from all over the world it's so cool the range of candy one can find fairly easily.

As far as these go you might be wondering how they're different then your standard candy cane. Well they are, first of all the size is the most obvious difference. But there's so much more. The flavour is just so much subtler than candy canes; you don't get that super cold burning sensation. After eating this I don't feel like my mouth is freezing cold. Instead it just seeps a subtle sweet peppermint flavour.

The texture too is very different. These are made of a much softer candy. In fact when you suck them for a little while it almost becomes impossible not to crunch it. It's as if the sugar is really the main texture, and it has such a subtle nice crunch.

Learn what candy was all about in days of "olde timey" and pick up a bag.
