Skittles Sweet Heat Candies: First, I did not purchase this snack. It was shared with my batch at the Recurse Center earlier this summer, and when a bizarre snack is freely offered to me, you can bet I will at least give it a try.

Luscombe Lime crush soda: Another truly fantastic soda, this lime crush drink from Luscombe is perfectly balanced, with a sharp acidity countered by just the right amount of sweetness. If you like limeade, this is like the best bottled version of it you can get. 4.5/5.0
