Review: Brach’s S’mores Candy Corn & Horrifying Moment of the Day: Belt Touching the Inside of a Urinal
Junk Food Nation, I’ve talked before about my interactions with one of the most disgusting things in the world: a urinal. Well, this morning’s interaction was no less vile. I got to the office and went to the bathroom to take care of business, and am standing there gaining perspective when I looked down and realized that the tip of my belt, the non-buckled end, was INSIDE the walls of the urinal, resting on the wall. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.
I’m sure this has happened to every male out there. AND WHAT CAN YOU DO??? I quickly batted the tip out of the urinal walls with my hand like I was swatting a backhand lob. Like I was blocking a punch coming from the outside. But the damage was done…I could see the tip of my belt has some moisture on it!! THE HORROR.
Look, maybe I’m a little overly sensitive about this. BUT I WANTED TO BURN MY BELT IN THE HEART OF A MILLION SUNS. Way to ruin my day, Urinal!!!!
C’mon…has this happened to you? Am I crazy??? Sigh.
Today’s junk food: Brach’s S’mores Candy Corn!
yes, I know. I KNOW! I told you a couple days ago that I don’t LOVE candy corn. And that hasn’t changed. But when you have Brach’s S’mores Candy Corn staring you in the face, you have to try it. I mean, I’ve seen candy corn flavored all sorts of ways…but S’mores intrigues me. I mean, I LOVE S’mores. I hate candy corn. WHAT IS A JUNK FOOD REVIEWER TO DO??? Dive in, that’s what. *chest thump* *embarrassment at chest thump*
I know you all do what I do….you look at candy corn and BELIEVE that each of the different color layers taste different. And sometimes they do! So what do you think the different layers in this Brach’s S’mores Candy Corn taste like? Orange is the cracker, white is the marshmallow, and brown is the chocolate? Sounds good to me…
You know, I DID see that Brach’s released another candy corn bag that had candy corn mixed with nuts. IS THAT GOOD? Someone do recon and tell me. Candy Corn with peanuts???? I mean, I GUESS that would work…but it seems awful weird to me.
Brach’s S’mores Candy Corn
Brach’s S’mores Candy Corn can become lodged in your throat…yikes. Not that we didn’t know this, but reading this warning label still gives me the heebie jeebies. I’m never letting my eventual kids eat anything small, ever.
Brach’s S’mores Candy Corn smelled like…well, S’mores. Well, that’s not quite accurate…it smelled like a mix of honey and burnt marshmallow. Which, to me, was a very positive sign. I did a few hints of the overly vanilla candy corn smell…but the burnt marshmallow and honey smells were undeniably there. Interesting.
Brach’s S’mores Candy Corn, I must admit, were pretty damn good…and AGAIN, I DO NOT LIKE CANDY CORN. (Hmmm…maybe I *DO* like candy corn and am in denial???)
The candy corn definitely had the essence of S’mores. Unmistakable. As I chewed the waxy candy, the first taste I got was the burnt marshmallow flavor, sugary and sare I say smoky? Ok, maybe that’s going too far. But a familiar burnt marshmallow taste was there.
The semi-chocolate-y flavor came next, mixing with the marshmallow taste to produce, in my mind, the S’mores taste I know and love. I was actually pretty impressed with how it came together. God knows what type of freaky chemicals came together to make these flavors, but Brach’s did a good job here.
I was going to give up on tasting any graham flavor, but as I chewed more, I realized that the aftertaste CLEARLY smacked of honey. The honey flavor was pretty noticeable, once I realized the flavor. So, all in all, this candy corn had everything – marshmallow, cocoa, and honey flavor. For something represented as S’mores Candy Corn…these were spot on.
GOOD WORK BRACH’S. Seriously, thumbs up.
