Candy companies release new flavors

This year has presented us with many new options as to which candy we should place on our grocery lists. Whether you find yourself loving chocolate-based or fruit-based, there is a new one or few for you to try. When deciding which candies to try for this article, I consulted the website Popsugar.

If you are a fruit lover, you will love the new Tropical Sour Patch Kids. The new flavors are the following: pink (paradise punch), white (pineapple), orange (tropical twist), and purple (passion fruit). The bag color is their basic yellow with a new blue accent color. They are just as sour as the original flavors but sure do pack different flavors. I prefer sour candies over any other candy, so, personally, these are my favorite.

Russell Stover made their own version of the classic Rocky Road. They mixed it with chocolate bark and created a yummy, chocolaty treat. They are bite size pieces of crushed peanuts, marshmallows, and caramel. Unfortunately, I could not find this product, but I am sure if you enjoy the classic rocky road ice cream, then you will like these.

My second personal favorite is the Dove Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate promises. They are little Dove dark chocolate candies filled with peanut butter in this little bag, but they bring a small bundle of joy! It does seem like a copy of Reese's peanut butter cups, but you may prefer a different form of chocolate rather than Hershey's.
