Quote from: blue_or_die on November 01, 2021, 05:48:06 PM1) Crunchie is fine. Not a go-to but it's tolerable2) Big Turk is awful. Just why?

Quote from: blue_or_die on November 03, 2021, 02:50:41 PMTwo comments today:1) Jujubes are way different than Big Turk. Jujubes are fabulous unless put into a chocolate bar so saying they're related is incorrect.2) Eat More is pretty good although I haven't had one since I was a kid. Never seen it in a Halloween candy mix but it would be a welcome change. I'd put it in the same category as Crunchie.

A Mr. Big and an Oh Henry are totally different bars, yet exactly the same except one is a wafer centre and one is a big chunk of fudge. Jujubes are great, chocolate is great, but chocolate coated Jujubes are delicious, and in my opinion, better together than eaten alone. The sum is greater than the parts.As to Eatmore, it was my mom's favourite, and I could never understand why, but upon further reflection, I think the components are reminders of a simpler time when molasses and peanuts were treats... for me, they are a nostalgic memory of her sharing her treat with us, (we did not often get candy as children) and taste far better than they do for that reason only... without that link, I think I would not give an Eatmore even a 1 star review, and wonder why anyone would make one.
