Mellowcreme Pumpkins


Every year I try and find something new for Halloween to review, and often I'm disappointed with the selection. Sure, once in a while I find a cool new treasure, but so often all I can find is miniature versions of classic treats like Oh Henry bars or Kit Kats, (tasty but not exciting) or treats that I've seen every year around this time of year. This year for the review, I'd like to say I discovered something so cool and different but I really haven't. I've seen these Mallowcreme Pumpkins before and I'm seeing them all over the place again.

The sadder thing is that these treats on the inside are just like really big Candy Corns. Now don't get me wrong I don't hate Candy Corn, I just wish that I didn't have to do another Candy Corn review again. These are exactly the same in taste and texture as Candy Corn, they just have a pumpkin shape. You’d think with all of the flavours available out there that the creators of this treat could have picked something a little more unique. Even a pumpkin flavour might have been more interesting. But just so you don’t feel ripped off here’s my Candy Corn review again:

“Candy corns are a Halloween perennial. They’re so tied to the holiday that you can pretty regularly buy decorations featuring this candy. My question is this, who thought of these things? Where did they come from? Candy Corn, if these things weren't such a classic candy, I think that they would fall under the category of, what the? I can kind of see how they might tie in with Thanksgiving, or fall harvest, but I’m not really sure either of those holidays needs a candy.

As a treat these candies are okay. Some people really hate them, but I don’t mind them that much. I don’t think I’d ever go out and buy a bag to enjoy, but if you put a bowl of them in front of me, I’d probably take one. I’d also be Ok if you used them to decorate a cupcake or something like that as well. The idea of eating a whole lot of these however seems like it might get a little tired.

I’m not really sure how these candies fit in the spectrum of Halloween, but they seem to be really attached to the holiday. As for eating them, I get sick of them pretty quick, but for the most part a handful of them is not a bad snack.”
