These Pink Jelly Belly candies were photographed while locked inside a glass case surrounding the information desk — creating a color spectrum display — which was part of the company’s booth at the Summer Fancy Food Show, which I attended on June 12th! Whether these Jelly Bellys are Pink Grapefruit of Cotton Candy, or some other flavor entirely, I cannot say. They sure do look pretty, though.
When it comes to flavor preferences, chocolate is a bit like wine; some prefer a bold red over a delicate white, just as chocolate lovers may favor bitter-sweet dark chocolate over the creamier, sweeter milk chocolate. Ultimately, it’s nice to have lots of choices so that you can suit your own taste and have room to experiment. RED chocolate, makers of delectable low sugar chocolate bars, understand what variety is all about.
In our previous review of RED Chocolate, we revealed how RED is sweetened exclusively with zero-calorie, plant-based Stevia and naturally-occurring melon sugars, giving it an amazing taste and texture, with a reduced amount of fat. Thanks to the absence of processed sugar, RED’s dark chocolate varieties contain up to 50% fewer calories, while Red’s milk chocolate bars’ calorie count is reduced by up to 35%. Now, RED has introduced a new variety – BLONDE Caramelized White Chocolate — that upholds the brand’s commitment to zero-percent added sugar, high quality ingredients and fabulously indulgent flavor. Just wait until you taste it!

To me it seems like the ’90s just happened, but I was recently reminded that those born in 1990 are now over 30 years old. Yeah, crazy. The passage of time takes people by surprise, which is one of the reasons nostalgia washes over us in reoccurring waves. Currently, everything old is new again when it comes to the resurgence of Nineties pop culture!
From dance trends, to toys, food, fashion, music and more — we’re consumed with inspiration that allows us to live in the past. It’s no secret that people are willing to spend more if the product reminds them fondly of a previous time, and marketers have been tapping into the trend to drive purchasing power. Just in time for Prime Day, here are a few products from the no-so-distant past that you’re probably seeing more of these days, especially on social media.
It’s a good thing I have a sharp eye or I would have walked right by this fun street art sticker, which cleverly portrays the hideous orange face of Dump as an Orange Dum Dums sucker! Bwhahahaha! They got the sucking part right, that is for sure. Just six more that of this loser. January 20th can’t come soon enough.
