Gigi’s Reviews is a site dedicated to reviewing all things edible. Not just candy mind you, (although there is plenty of that lurking about Gigi’s site) but rather, all sorts of yummy-licious looking stuff. Most of the reviewed food items are somewhat lesser known products and could be considered by some to be a little off the beaten path. This is definitely part of the allure of these reviews, however. You might actually learn something about a new product that you aren’t completely familiar with yet you might be interested in trying. Gigi’s braved lots of unchartered food territory before you—her reviews might save you the trouble of going altogether or get you out on a food adventure of your own.
Obsessive Sweets is another fabulously fun candy review blog that is well written and is mouth wateringly photographed to boot. The site is organized so that you can search by type of candy (or holiday) or by a particular brand name. Each candy has a close up picture, is reviewed along with a description (often humorous) and then given a rating of 1-5. The five rating is the equivalent of “sublime”—the rating of one means, simply put—“spit it out!” Lots of new on the market candies are reviewed here along with many nostalgic favorites. There is also tons of stuff you didn’t even know existed. Obsessive Sweets really has her ear to the candy ground and if you want to eat it—she’s probably beat you to it and written all about it.

This blog, confection-ately known as “Snack Love” is a site devoted to the sampling and reviewing of candy, gum, soft drinks and other snack foods. Although the reviews are predominately about candy, the other variety of products seen here might also entice you. Lots of out of the ordinary products were reviewed (many from other countries) and yet there are still lots of the new products you will see at your local convenience store as well. Each product is close-up photographed, reviewed for taste and texture and then given a grade A-F, just like back in school. A feature that is really cool about this site is that you can search for products based on their “grade”…so for example, if you want to go see everything that Snack Love gave the big fail—you can do that.
