Beijing Tastes Pistachio Flavored Candies: This bag of candies from China contained individually wrapped candies, each covered in a thin striped coating with a candy-cane-like sheen. Inside are crispy layers with a caramelized, nutty flavor. The texture is a bit like a mass-manufactured candy mille feuille. I grew up eating this type of peanut candy growing up and have a nostalgic fondness for it. 3.5/5.0

Cadbury dairy milk and sweet biscuit chocolate: A final snack from my flight back from Australia, this milk chocolate bar was possibly the most sweet chocolate I've had. The sweet biscuits added a crunchy texture but also even more sweetness. 1.5/5.0

Bunderim Ginger ginger gummy bears: : these Australian gummy bears contain 5% ginger juice. They are substantially bigger and less chewy than Haribo, with a dense texture. Frosted on the exterior, the gummies' initial flavor is strange and waxy, but the aftertaste is unmistakably ginger, with a pleasant amount of spice. Still, it has less ginger flavor than Asian ginger chew candies. 2.5/5.0

Gelco Cola-Xplosion: Reminiscent of Cow Tales, this tubular gummy candy has a chewy cola-flavored exterior and a white interior that gives off a fizzy sensation. The cola flavoring was well-rounded, with a deeper sarsaparilla flavor than I expected. A dentist's nightmare, as the candy becomes embedded in your teeth. 3.0/5.0

Tootsie Roll Watermelon Tootsie Roll Pop: In a bowl of free Tootsie Roll Pops at CopyTech at MIT, I came across this watermelon lollipop, a flavor I hadn't previously encountered. According to Wikipedia, it was introduced in 2004. I wouldn't be surprised if I haven't had a Tootsie Roll Pop in about a decade, but I do have a "soft" spot for Tootsie Rolls generally. Unsurprisingly, the watermelon flavor tastes nothing like the real fruit, yet is not wildly artificial in the way Jolly Ranchers or other hard candies might be. That said,... (read more) 2.5/5.0
