Quax "The Yummy Ducky"


One of the great missions I have as the Candy Critic is the search for the treat that looks really cool and tastes great too. I don't necessarily mean that the treat has to look appetizing; I've seen many appetizing treats that taste good. What I'm looking for is a treat that shocks me with how cool and different it looks while still tasting great. It would be the ultimate novelty treat if I could find something that tastes good and looks really unique as well.

Our little friend Quax here most certainly has the "looks cool" part down. When I first saw this treat, I was amazed that it was even edible. It looked just like a little plastic duck, I was ready to take him home and float him in my bathtub. Unfortunately for our little ducky friend, he doesn't taste much better than if he was made out of plastic. He was a little softer I guess, and probably wouldn't hold up to my warm bath as a plastic duck would, but the flavour was pretty weak.

I figure they where going for white chocolate flavour but even reading the package you can see they really didn't achieve that much. The Quax kind of tastes "Milk" like but the flavour is so subtle that the texture almost overwhelmed it.

I did enjoy biting his head off, that was strange and entertaining, but I was just so disappointed with the lack of flavour and the waxy feel of the chocolate that it didn't end up surprising me in the way I had hopped.
