Taffy Mail - May Box

Hello Everybody!

*This post contains PR samples

Today I'm going to show you a fab subscription service called Taffy Mail. 
This is an American candy subscription service, and it's the first one in the UK!

Here is what was inside the May Taffy Mail box...

First up is one of my all-time-favourites. Reeces peanut butter cups have been my favourite American candy ever since we got them over in the UK. 
These are white chocolate cups which just make them even better!

These care similar to Reeses peanut butter cups, in shape and packaging however, they're filled with a whipped cream centre. The 'whipped cream centre' definitely seemed more like a soft marshmallow centre. I found these to be super sweet and two was definitely enough.

These baked snacks remind me of ritz cracers, or cheddars. 
They're super salty and reallllly cheesy.

I'm not usually a fan of watermelon flavoured sweets, however these bubblegum pieces are actually pretty good.

The flavour of this fizzy drink is what I can only describe as 'tropical' it's super juicy and super carbonated too.

Cotton candy (or candy floss to us Brits) flavoured popping candy - super fun and unusual too.
Do any of you know if it's true that Aussies call candy floss / cotton candy 'fairy floss'
If it's true, then that's the cutest thing I've ever heard!

I thought these were delicious!
They reminded me of after eight mints and as I love chocolate and mint, these were sooo good. 

I'm thinking that these sweets are the american equivalent to what we call 'jaw breakers'. They're fruity hard sweets. I was pleased to find that there were a total of 5 different flavours inside the pack.

These individually-wrapped chocolate cakes with cream / icing inside apparently have 250 calories per serving and a 'serving' classed as two of the cakes.
As they were super sweet (but super delicious), I found that one was just enough. So for 125 calories, these cakes were great. Especially with a good cup of tea - how British of me!

I have seen Corn Nuts here, there and everywhere lately. I was super excited to try them out but in all honesty, I was a little disappointed. They're pretty tasteless and they tend to leave an artificial after taste, however that being said, my Dad was happy to have the and he said they were "very good" which is high praise, I guess.

These super cute ice cream cones which are just  40 calories for the two, whoop!
They are very similar to pink 'n' whites in taste and texture, however the ice cream shape of these treats is much more fun, in my opinion.

Fun sized vanilla-flavoured nougat coated in milk chocolate. 
This was so tasty and I wished it was a bigger. I think that I actually prefer american chocolate to the UK's chocolate.

Two tubes of Laffy Taffy which we definitely don't have here in the UK.
They're super chewy and super sweet. The blue raspberry one stained my tongue bright blue for a significant amount of time, the novelty wore off pretty quickly to be honest haha.

Super chewy nougat covered in dark chocolate - this is one of my favourites and only 190 calories for the whole bar.
If we had these in the UK, I would definitely be addicted!

I placed these sweets into my car as the current 'driving snack'.
I've never tried root beer before, however I can't say I'm overly impressed. These jellybean-like sweets reminded me of minty mouthwash to be honest, but I guess some people probably love these.

Who would have thought that salty pretzels and sweet chocolate would taste so good together?! This is another of my favourites.

A huge bottle of Hershey's chocolate syrup, this would be fabulous on pancakes - mmm!

It was so much fun to look through the box and try out all of the different american candy items. I'm pleased to say that I loved more things than I hated and I do love trying new things, so it was a super fun experience!
