Crazy for Craisinets!

Fresh from Wisconsin...
It's four different flavours of Pixy Stix, Harry Potter Drooble's Best Blowing Gum (turns your mouth blue!), and Craisinets!

Jeanna is always such a doll with her witty comments and wicked sense of humour. She's also known for her far reaching knowledge of candy and chocolate (and all that other good stuff). When Jeanna asked who would like to review Craisnets, I jumped at the opportunity. Who am I to refuse chocolate?
I almost didn't get my hands on the Craisinets, since Little One's pudgy little baby hands went straight for the package of milk chocolate covered "craisins"!!
Oooooh! I had to rescue the lovely drool soaked packet.
First off, I LOVE cranberries. I LOVE craisins. I LOVE chocolate (as long as it's not tooooo sweet and not tooooo much). Craisins + Chocolate = a match made in Heaven! Right?
Well, the Craisins sort of survived the trip across the border. They were pretty much "intact" still, but sort of looked like melted bunny droppings by the time they arrived at my house.
Here's a close up for your viewing enjoyment. See? They really do look like bunny poop! Hubby claims they look like deer droppings. Either way, don't let their appearance fool you.
Brought to you by the famous NESTLÉ company are these tiny bundles of goodness. I remember as a kid, we'd get NESTLÉ RAISINETS as a treat once in a while. I think my grandparents and my Mom would sometimes trick us into thinking we were having the real thing. I think most of the time they just got chocolate covered raisins or yogurt covered raisins from the Bulk Barn. Anyway, chocolate or yogurt covered raisins were always a favourite of mine.

While I generally like NESTLÉ products, this one wasn't on top of my list. The chocolate was good, but not stellar, and the craisins were just okay. Perhaps I have been a tad spoiled by having our local chocolatier (The Manitoulin Chocolate Works) so close by. I have a confession. I am a chocolate snob. The Craisinets get a 3 out of 5 stars for me. Am I being too harsh?

Can't wait to test out the Harry Potter Drooble's gum! It's cotton candy bubble gum! The package claims that it turns your mouth blue!

Thanks, Jeanna! You da best!

Is it Glosettes or something that has the chocolate covered raisins and cocolate covered peanuts? My mom always loved the peanut ones the best while I always loved the raisin ones. After reading this post I am going to have to find some of those craisinets and try them out! Dried fruit and chocolate. YUM-O!
