Some things really get my goat when it comes to kids, like little girls wearing heavy makeup. (Cough, cough.) But pot leaf-shaped candy? Meh.

The Candy Hierarchy

For the most part I agree with this fairly detailed ranking of the various candies given out on Halloween. However, I am distressed by the absence of Sour Patch Kids. Where are they?

It only kinda-sorta makes sense when you consider she lives out in Vegas, performing in the striptease "Peepshow" and filming her soon-to-be-aired reality show, "Holly'…

Crave: Sunny Seed Drops

We’ve had a hankering for all things sweet since we were in single digits, and candy was one of the first words we knew how to spell. Since we weren’t born yesterday, it’s hard to surprise or impress us when it comes to the sugary stuff. When a friend told us to try these chocolate-covered…

This Piece Of Chocolate Looks Awfully Familiar

Sometimes the web makes me laugh so hard. A chocolate company is selling creamy, delicious candies in the shape of anuses. But they're Belgian! That means they're tasty. [The Incredible Edible Anus]…

Worms Do Not Enhance The Taste Of Chocolate

More than $1 billion of chocolate is purchased for Valentine’s Day alone, but apparently not all of it is edible. CBS2 in New York City purchased six bags of chocolate from different stores around the city. They found that five were inedible. Of course, this was a very small sampling, but most of the product…
