I do not believe that artificial food colors, artificial flavors, mineral oil and sulfur dioxide (“to maintain freshness”) were the ingredients of the original Yang & Smylie licorice candy. Perhaps those chemicals were added after acquisition of the business by The Hershey Company in 1977 when production of the candy has become really massive. Monstrous size businesses […]

I cannot remember that any other food manufacturer would suggest the customers to tell something like what The Hershey Company asked them for: What Do You Do With Twizzlers Candy? Well, if you think that Twizzlers were designed only to be eaten, think again. In fact some people eat them. Others do handcraft: “With the pull and […]

Would Jesus enjoy eating the food dyes? While Easter is coming closer I keep watching people wiping out egg-shaped candies from Wal-Mart aisles. This has pushed me to write an emergent article explaining to the US public what they actually get inside the funny containers. Fruit Punch Flip-Flop Lollipop, DDRS ~ 73 What this made in […]

Easter basket of the food dyes Easter is coming and we are expected to be inspired into buying by reading something like this: ”…It’s hard to imagine Easter without marshmallow treats, bunny-shaped sweets and cream-filled eggs. Did you know the holiday is the second-biggest time of year for candy sales?” – MSN Oh, yeah… Candy sales […]

Fruit Candy Do our children take health risks when they eat candies loaded with food additives and food dyes? Unfortunately, yes. Candy is a special topic because they are designed first and foremost to catch attention of our children so that they encourage us into a buying spree.

Rainbow of risks I was not really planning another post about Twizzlers (see previous Twizzlers: Strawberry twists). But after seeing how misleading the Twizzlers Rainbow label is I could not afford to wait to report to you about it.

Twisted story Most likely you know what Twizzlers is, don’t you? Of course, it is a popular brand of fruit-flavored candy in the United States and Canada, often called a “licorice candy”.
