fourteen days of love-#3


who's hottest?
i love cinnamon gummy candies-namely cinnamon bears. at this time of the year, cinnamon gummy hearts are everywhere. i picked some up the other day at the local wal-mart and was sorely disappointed. not only were they not spicy, but they didn't even taste like cinnamon. they tasted like roses. of course, i keep eating them, but in honor of valentine's day and it's "hotness," i am having a little contest. now is your chance to nominate your favorite candy company's cinnamon gummy treat (and chocolate covered ones are a-ok!). i will be conducting a taste test along with a few colleagues. if your candy is the winner, you'll be in for a real treat!!!

*to enter: leave a comment with the brand name and item name. please include the name of the retailer carrying the product if known. deadline for nominations: february 10th. winner will be announced february 14th.

ummm...the best regular or chocolate covered? byu has the best choco-cinna-bears...sweet factory has some good ones seasonally i think-i don't think there's a sweet factory around there though...otherwise i think the general "sweet's" ones you can find at like wal-mart are the best-i went on a hunt for them and couldn't find them anywhere around christmas time-total crap. the ones you can find at some gas stations usually are totally volatile-totally hot or complete duds. they don't mix up the goo well enough before they make those bears. dude you better post the results though and bring any tester's to wa with you so i can vote too... can't wait!

Dude, I was just talking to my friend the other day on the phone and in the middle of the conversation, I said, "Isn't it sad how one bad cinnamon bear can ruin your whole day?" I mean, seriously. They have to be spicy and chewy and delicious - is that so hard? Apparently for some candy companies, it is. I must research and find my fave spicy bear and I'll get back to you...
