Cry Baby Gum

If you love gum and sour candy then look no further because Cry Baby Bubble Gum is the perfect gum for you. Cry Baby Bubble Gum is the best sour gum because it actually tastes sour. There are other types of gum that say they are sour, when really they are not. Unlike most sour gum, Cry Babies don’t just have sour powder in the inside; instead they are all around sour and don’t lose flavor quickly.

Because Cry Babies don’t have powder in the middle it is easier to just bite half and save the rest for later. “Sometimes I can’t finish a whole ball of gum. Cry Baby gum makes it easy to just chew half and not spill powder everywhere. It also makes it easier to share,” says a satisfied candy lover. Cry Babies are also made by one of the greatest and the original bubble gum producers, Dubble Bubble, which gives you the extra reassurance that it will satisfy your sour-loving taste buds.  This gum comes in five fantastic flavors: sour lemon, cherry, apple, berry, and orange. In the packaging there are two of almost every flavor. If you would like to get more of the same sour, delicious flavor then you can just pop another one out. If you would like to mix it up and create a new flavor then you can get two or more different flavors and experiment. Cry Baby Bubble Gum is the best, original sour gum and the taste proves it all.



A bright yellow package—what could be more enticing? The candy inside!  Dots are colorful little gumdrops that keep you popping them in your mouth. They’re soft and chewy, as long as you don’t let them sit for a while. Each of the five assorted flavors will keep you hooked on Dots.  Strawberry is my personal favorite, but there’s also cherry, lemon, lime, and orange. Those are the original flavors anyway. Dots also come in Tropical and Wild Berry. On the back of each box of Dots is a game you can play while you eat these awesome bits of candy.

The box will last you longer than you think, and by the end, you’ll be hooked. Dots taste great fresh out of the box, or slightly hardened—whichever you prefer. They’re not too sweet, and the lemon and lime flavors have just a hint of sour, for those who prefer sour candy. I would recommend trying all three Dots assortments. You won’t be disappointed!

Peanut Butter M&Ms

M&M Peanut Butter

M & M’s are the chocolates that melt in your mouth, not in your hands, according to the old advertisements. So far, they’ve been right. M &M’s have many different varieties-plain, crispy, peanuts, and so on.  These flavors are all very well known. But what about the peanut butter ones? Although not as widely known as the previously mentioned chocolates, Peanut Butter M & M’s are just as great. Open up their red packaging, and it will seem as though you’ve opened up a pack of Plain M & M’s, except jumbo sized. Peanut Butter M & M’s may look like a larger version of Plain M & M’s, but they are filled with creamy peanut butter on the inside.

One would think that Peanut Butter M & M’s are a lot like Reeses Pieces, what with the whole peanut butter idea, but the difference is obvious with the first bite. The chocolate layer on the outside of Peanut Butter M & M’s gives it more crunch. That and the fact that they’re twice the size of the of Reeses Pieces make Peanut Butter M & M’s an ideal chocolate for the peanut butter lover, and the chocolate lover in general.

Fun Dip (Lik M Aid)

Fun Dip

Fun Dip is one of my favorite candies because it has three different, wonderful flavors all in one candy. If you want a different taste then you can just open up another flavor without having to buy a completely new candy. Unlike many other candies, Fun Dip also has a candy stick that not only allows for easier candy-eating abilities, but is edible too. Although there are only two sticks per package of Fun Dip, they last long enough to even eat six dips! If for some reason you do not have a stick you could always use your finger, which, for a kid, works just as well.

Out of all the three flavors many would say that the Razz Apple Magic Dip is the best because not only does it taste great but the flavor and color changes as you eat it. All the dips have their own unique and excellent taste; the Grape-Yumtious dip is sour enough to please sour-lovers, but not too sour. Cherry-Yum-Diddly dip is for those people with a sweet tooth because it is astonishingly sweet, but not too sweet.

Some would also think that each dip tastes and is exactly the same as one of the Pixy Stix flavors, especially because they are from the same manufacturer as Fun Dip, but in fact they are wrong. In addition to different flavor names, Fun Dip is also grainier than Pixy Stix and it comes with the fabulous candy sticks. The packaging is also amazing because it makes it easier to eat with the stick. Overall Fun Dip is easy to eat, unique, and great tasting.
