Wonka Mudpuff Caramelstuff

(It's been way too hot here in Perth to blog, so sorry for the radio silence. Today is only 33°C, so I can comfortably look at some lollies without it melting in my hands!)

Way back in August, Nestle's subbrand Wonka released a new flavour of their chocolate block to coincide with their Golden Ticket promotion they were running at the time.

Mentos Tutti Frutti

Stewart Alexander seem to be upping the frequency of imported Mentos flavours here in Australia. Tutti Frutti is an international flavour that has been available overseas for some time, but only made the jump to our island mid-late last year.

Cadbury Dairy Milk Crackle

Gosh, I am getting slack! Cadbury debuted five new block flavours way back in May of last year. I managed to review Cherry Ripe and Strawberries and Cream, but the remaining three - Picnic, Crackle and Toffee Crisp were sadly forgotten. Until now! Crackle has made its way to the front of the review pile, so even though this limited edition flavour is no longer available, let's take a look!

Capricorn Mallow Moments Strawberry Pavlova

Back in October I spotted a new range from Australian brand Capricorn, a company best known for its licorice range. They have branched out somewhat and turned their attention to covered marshmallows, a market that includes very few products. (In 2012, Pascal released a range of chocolate-covered flavoured marshmallows.) Capricorn seem to have accepted the challenge of expanding the area, and have introduced three new flavours of covered marshmallows. We're taking a first look at the range with Strawberry Pavlova.

[Mod Post]: I'm back!

Two weeks accidentally turned into four, but I can promise we'll be back to your regular blogging schedule! Thanks for your patience.

I hope all of my readers had a wonderful holiday season, and I wish you all a safe and joyous new year.

Gossip: Mentos Cola returns and new Nestle KitKat flavours

Just a couple of new releases to report:

A previous limited edition Mentos flavour, Cola, has made a return for another period. We only saw it a year or so ago but it's back again. Somehow I missed reviewing it last time, so I will be picking up a roll for analysis soon.

Grape Mix has also become available in a roll (from its debut in the resealable share pack) so this will be reviewed soon, too.

In more exciting news, Nestle has just released images of their new KitKat flavours (plural) to distributors. Choc Mint Whirl and Choc Whirl are two completely new flavours and styles. It appears that the top layer of the finger will have a marbled effect, giving the product its name. So far I have found images of Choc Mint Whirl available across medium and king size bars, and family blocks, but Choc Whirl seems to only be available in the family block. I'm not sure if that's permanent or if it will be released to the other sizes as well.

Have you seen anything new and exciting released?

Hi lolly addicts!

Just a note to let you know I'm travelling for the next two weeks and won't be posting any reviews during that time.

See you in a fortnight!

Believe it or not, I've actually reached the last Marvellous Creations product in my review basket - at least until Cadbury puts out another round of flavours! Let's take a look at newcomer Stars.

Mars Limited Edition Caramel

Mars has gone back in time with their 2014 seasonal release of the classic Mars Bar, and given us 'Mars Caramel'. They didn't have to go back too far - we last saw this just two years ago in 2012. Must have been popular. Let's see how it rates on the Lolly Addict scale.
