DIY Candy Kit Lets You Build And Eat Your Own Bonsai Tree

Having just binged the entire Cobra Kai season 3, I’m in full Miagyi mode, yet also in desperate need of sugar. 

Answering my cravings, a candy kit from Japan lets you enjoy the visual aesthetics of the time-honored bonsai tree, and when you’re right and ready, feast on its sweet bark. 

SoraNews24 shared candy company Heart’s newest creation, a do-it-yourself candy bonsai tree kit. 

This kit comes with pieces of chocolate, vanilla sponge cake “leaf powder,” and a few molding trays that let you craft a miniature model bonsai tree entirely out of confectionary items.

All the tools you’ll really need are included, minus some toothpicks and a freezer to help chill the chocolate. 

Check out the video above to see the assembly in action. You can find and order the Bonsai DIY Candy Kits through Amazon Japan

New NERDS Clusters Wraps The Candy Around Gummy Core

I’ve always believed that there exists a level of sweet tooth satiation that can only be achieved with a box of Nerds. My only gripe is that, in a rush to have some, I’ll tend to drop a few (dozen) getting them out of the box.

Now, from the hallowed halls of Nerds HQ comes a new form of the treat that avoids all that messiness. This new innovation wraps the colorful confections around a sweet gummy center.

The new Nerds Gummy Clusters are composed of mini Rainbow Nerds that wrap around a soft gummy center.

It sounds like biting into a sugar-packed dream, really.

You can find the new Nerds Gummy Clusters available this August at supermarket snack aisles across the country.

SweeTARTS x Wonder Woman Collab Releases Golden Rope Candy

While we may be months away still from the premiere of the new Wonder Woman movie, our excitement for the next installment in the series is getting us through these past melancholic months. Luckily, there’s a bit of a reprieve in the interim of that wait. In a collaboration between SweeTARTS and Wonder Woman 1984, the candy brand has released a limited time new treat inspired by the upcoming DC Comics film.

SweeTARTS Golden Ropes are golden strings of tropical-flavored licorice rope that boast the signature flavor of SweeTARTS in the center. The candy snack was inspired by Princess Diana’s legendary Lasso of Truth, given to her before leaving the mythical island of Themyscira. The lasso’s power compels anyone bound by it to tell the absolute truth, making it an essential tool in Wonder Woman’s mystical arsenal

You can find them now on grocery store shelves in the candy aisles in anticipation for the upcoming comic book movie. Wonder Woman 1984 is tentatively set to release this August, though that premiere may be moved depending on the state of the world.

We’ve been snacking a lot at home these days and one of the treats we miss most is gourmet popcorn. Just grabbing a handful of candy coated popcorn and popping each sweet and salty morsel into your mouth has us dreaming of simpler times. Well, thanks to a colloration between Snickers and Sam’s Club, we can dream a little less while staying home.

Candy Pop Popcorn just revealed a new Snickers flavor that can only be found at Sam’s Club.

Yes, if you’re thinking popcorn that’s fused together with Snickers chocolate candy, you’re absolutely right. Made with pieces of Snickers candy pieces, the popcorn is finished with a Snickers’ caramel drizzle and nuts. The next movie night will be seriously decadent.

You can find 20-oz bags at Sam’s Club locations nationwide. While you’re there, see if you can cop a few bags for us too, please. We’ll eagerly wait by our mailbox.

Deconstructed Twizzlers Now Exist And They’re Called IZZLERS

Ever wonder what a Twizzler looked like completely unraveled?  Turns out you have to wonder no longer.

Meet the Izzler, the deconstructed, untangled, and reverse-twisted cousin of the iconic Hershey’s Twizzler snack. Does it sound like a mouthful? Absolutely.

Spotted by JunkBanter, the Izzler is made with the exact same chewy confections of strawberry-flavored candy ropes that come inside a regular Twizzler. Kind of the perfect snack for those who aren’t about the twists and turns that come within each pack of Twizzlers. Pretty great if you’re trying to portion control your candy intake too.

Those interested in picking up a bag, can find them in such retail locations as Walmart where they’ll only be available for a limited time. Now, I wonder what an untwisted version of a Red Vine would look like?

Chips Ahoy! x Sour Patch Kids Crossover Is The Cookie Collab We NEED

Ever face the dilemma while snack shopping where you absolutely can’t choose between the richness of a cookie with the sour blast of sweetness that comes from Sour Patch Kids? It’s something many of us have faced at some point in our youths… and well into our thirties.

Well, choose no further with the latest collaboration between Chips Ahoy! cookies and Sour Patch Kids. Yes, you read that right.

The new cookie hybrid features the sweet and crunchy texture of a Chips Ahoy! cookie souped up with the sweet and sour candy-inspired chunks of Sour Patch Kids. It’s essentially biting into a delectable cookie while popping pieces of Sour Patch Kids into your mouth, which frankly sounds amazing.

Wish these existed the last time I went to the movies. Then I wouldn’t have to spend a fortune on cookies and candy.

You can find this new flavor of Chips Ahoy! cookie at participating retailers nationwide starting May.

Snickers’ White Chocolate Bar Is Becoming A Permanent Flavor

For decades we’ve fallen in love with the iconic Snickers Bar. Packed with milk chocolate, nougat, caramel and nuts, the candy bar checks off many textural sensations all while gently pacifying your throbbing sweet tooth. Now, a popular flavor is joining the fold, and it’s sticking around for good.

Snickers Brand just announced that the popular white chocolate version of the confection is hitting stores. So yes, Snickers White, is becoming a permanent flavor.

The snack is comprised with the standard Snickers elements (peanuts, nougat, caramel) but tags in the rich and creamy sweetness of white chocolate as a refreshing reprieve.

Originally a limited-time release, Snickers White has shown to become so popular that the brand decided to give it a permanent home.

Expect to find Snickers White sold nationwide in stores starting January 2020. Until then, just stuff your stockings with the classic stuff.
