Consumer Reports For Kids: Halloween Candy

blackcatThe Great Halloween Candy Taste Test
Consumer Reports 4 kids cut halloween candy into mystery pieces in a blind taste test. What did the little devils like the most? How well did they do at picking out ingredients?
It's fun to take the test yourself. (I got one wrong because I couldn't see the candy wrapper with these glasses.)
CRFK, btw, was first called called Penny Power, then Zillions. NOTE: I had to come back and unlink The Candy Taste Test, Consumer Reports For Kids, and Zillion links in November because they've since been taken down.
The test consisted of kids tasting and identifying popular candy. There was a sample test matching candy by ingredients.

Walnettos, Licorice Bridge Mix, and different sized Bit-O-Honeys are plentiful. My dad has a stash of Toasted Coconut Marshmallows hidden in his truck. I see the nasty stuff everywhere. Almost ordered some Ice Cubes the other day from: http://www.oldtimecandy.com/enter.htm. Ice Cubes are listed under What's New. Have seen Goo Goos Clusters about, not sure if they're supreme.

I could list places to get the candy you asked about in the Madison area if you'd like. Check out the WCD sidebar, and let me know if you still need places online.

Do you have one of the "i want candy blogs" or are you a Bow Wow Wow fan?

My favorite place for Bit-O-Honeys is the Cracker Barrel because they have the orginal style with the wax paper sections.

The True Value in Oregon also carries the classic bar style Bit-O-Honey.
