Not Yo' Average Kinda Candy!



Friends, I must say that I am a fan of BigSkyBrands candy. They won me over years ago with theirJones Soda Candy. In partnership with Jones Soda, BigSkyBrands came up with their carbonated Jones Soda Candy. The perfect marriage? I think so. Everyone knows Jones Soda, right? Some of their most popular flavours have now become candy flavours! Fufu Berry, Green Apple, Berry Lemonade, Cream Soda, Grape, Orange & Cream, Cola and Root Beer candy! Thank you, BigSkyBrands!

I love these slightly fizzy candies! They certainly do not fall behind on taste! They are full of flavour! I've tried them all, except for the Cream Soda, Cola, and Root Beer. Don't worry! They're on my list!

Oh, it gets better! Not only is the candy amazing, but the containers are the coolest! The tins are soooooo cool! It's not just a novelty for our family. We actually use the tins after we've eaten the candy! Hubby keeps a few Jones Soda tins in his truck and in my van and fills them with loonies, toonies, and quarters for those times when you need change for emergencies. Trust me, it's come in handy for us!

Then there are the Warp Energy Mints. "Warp Energy Mints deliver the boost of an energy drink with the breath-blasting effects of a high-powered mint. Each mint is fueled with a potent energy formulation featuring ginseng, for superior physical endurance; and guarana, for an instant thrust of energy. The result is a natural, high-octane energy rush, anytime and anywhere."

I'm addicted to the Green Tea energy mints. Hubby loves the cinnamon ones.

What I am most excited about is the introduction of these...

Sunkist candies piqued my curiosity, because I'm not into overly sweet things. I like citrus flavours. These are absolute perfection. Okay, I sound like Chandler in that Friends episode where he gets stuck in an ATM vestibule with Jill Goodacre!

Anyway, Valencia Orange, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Eureka Lemon and Key Lime
give a refreshing citrus burst while freshening your breath. Isn't that cool? So far, I've tried the Valencia Orange, Ruby Red Grapefruit, and Key Lime. All three are my favourites! I can't choose one!

Finally, we have the Yogen Fruz Smoothies. I'm super excited about these, because I love, love, LOVE Yogen Fruz! I am crazy about smoothies. I make smoothies at home, I order smoothies when I'm out...you get the picture. Smoothies = heaven. Smoothies make me happy.

BigSkyBrands teamed up with Yogen Fruz to give you the portable smoothie! Each piece of candy is only 3 calories, with 0 fat. Yup. You can enjoy these babies anytime, anywhere, and feel zero guilt!

They come in these amazing flavours: Strawberry Banana, Blueberry Breeze (with Acai), Tropical Storm, PeachBerry Sunset, Wild Cherry and Verry Berry.

BigSkyBrands gave me Strawberry Banana, Blueberry Breeze (with Acai) and PeachBerry Sunset to try. I LOVE THEM ALL!!! Wait! That's a lie. I didn't get to try the Blueberry Breeze, because I foolishly left the box of candies on my stairs, and our guests at Thanksgiving swiped ALL of the Blueberry Breeze ones! I guess the overwhelming consensus came down to the Blueberry Breeze being the number one choice? Hard to say, since they pretty much cleaned me out of all the other flavours too. Hmmmph! I have to be more creative in hiding my stash next time!

BUY IT!

You can buy all of these amazing candies at stores everywhere. Candy stores, specialty stores, grocery stores, convenience stores...I've even seen them at Mark's Work Warehouse!!!

I like the Jones candy, C. And it takes a nice photo and has overall great presentation. I still have some of the tins around the place. It's a lot better than Bottle Caps soda candy.

~you already know that I am stalking you, and I have your badge on my Nimkee-Blessings blog :O) So many decisions, but I'd have to say that the Jones Soda Sours would be my choice! I'll keep my eyes peeled to see where I can buy them. I love your suggestions for "re-using" the tins! Good luck to everyone.....but I truly do hope I win...lol.
