Last year, on the old Lazy Lady, Mr. LL and I tasted all the weird and seasonal candies/treats we could find and rated them as either a "Trick" or a "Treat." Well, it's that time again, and we could not be more excited for our favorite husband/wife collab segment on the blog!
Each week, I'll be posting Trick Or Treat and letting you know what made us sick by being gross and what made us sick because we couldn't stop eating it. First up, we have Brach's Peanut Butter Cup Candy Corn and three flavors of Hammond's candy bars!
Mr. LL and I both agree that this very promising flavor of a (IMO) disgusting Halloween tradition is a TRICK!! We had some Starburst candy corn last year and it redeemed candy corn, so we had hopes that this new seasonal flavor would do the same. Our trust was misplaced. Unless you are a fan of peanut butter flavpred wax, don't waste your time or hard earned cash on this lie.
The first time I found Hammond's chocolate bars, Mr. LL and I loved all their "weird" flavors (Potato Chip chocolate bar? Yes!). So, of course I got every seasonal flavor they had on display. Sadly, overall these were a trick, but not, necessarily, in a gross way. The caramel apple one just tasted like chocolate to me with a hint of a caramel center. Mr. LL thought tit tasted like rotten apple, though. Mr. LL proclaimed the candy corn flavor a "treat" but I say "trick", because it too sweet. Finally, unless you love pumpkin spice flavored dark chocolate, the pumpkin spice bar is a trick. In all fairness, though, it tastes exactly like it says it would.
