Strawberry shortcake, key lime pie, chocolate raspberry cheesecake, apple pie…no, I’m not reading the dessert menu at a restaurant! If you love scrumptious desserts like these but don’t have the time to make them yourself, you’ll love new Dessert Bites from Allan Candy!
These little morsels pack all the flavour of some of the world’s most popular desserts into a tasty bite-sized candy that you can enjoy any time of the day! I received a bag of each variety of Dessert Bites to test out and I was curious to see if the taste could really measure up to that of my favourite desserts.
I have to say, from the very first bite I was more impressed than I expected to be. From the cross-section of the candies that’s featured on the bag, I expected a hard candy shell exterior, something I’m not a big fan of. But the exterior was actually a creamy candy coating that melted in the mouth after a few minutes and it was positively delicious!
The candies did have a noticeable dessert flavour and the Strawberry Shortcake variety became my especial favourite. I found the Apple Pie variety had the most realistic flavour. And despite the fact that any variety of cheesecake is pretty much irresistible in my books, the Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake candies were the ones I wasn’t all that crazy about. I guess in my mind, there’s just no substitute for the real, calorie-laden thing where cheesecake is concerned!
Of course, my sugar-loving husband and boys enjoyed these candies even more than I did and it was only with a great degree of difficulty that I managed to make the bags last more than two days. The whole family liked being able to have a few candies at any time. And it was great to enjoy the taste of dessert without having any dishes to wash up afterwards!
If you love these classic desserts, why not give new Allan Candy Dessert Bites a try and see what you think? You may find that enjoying the taste of rich and creamy cheesecake or cinnamon-scented apple pie is as easy as popping a bite-sized candy into your mouth!
