Chocolate shop thief turns out to be a bear!

10 Aug

 

 

A shopkeeper in Colorado was flabbergasted to discover the perpetrator of a robbery at his candy store was infact a big, black bear. The hungry scavenger grabbed a paw full of sweets on seven different occasions, taking them outside to eat, before eventually being scared-off.

I am not sure what specific brands it took but am sure there is a television commercial in there somewhere for them.

American Chocolate Showcase #4 – Butterfinger

3 Aug

Buy Butterfinger in bulk online at Moo-Lolly-Bar Australia

One of America’s most popular confections, Butterfinger is a much loved bar of candy which comprises of a flaky, orange coloured compound centre that is not too dissimilar in texture, flavour and taste to what Australian’s know as chocolate covered peanut brittle.

Invented by one Drew Seibold of Florence, Wisconsin and initially manufactured by the Curtiss Candy Company in 1923 who also made Baby Ruth chocolate bars, Butterfinger is is now produced by Nestlé.

A unique chocolate bar, in that there isn’t really anything else like it on the market, Butterfinger’s are cherished both for their peanut butter taste and also the crumbly sensation that explodes on to your tongue when you bite into one.

Famously promoted by Bart Simpson and other characters from The Simpsons, who collectively appeared in more than 150 advertisements for the product between 1990 and 2001, each advert finished with Bart yelling the infamous straplines of ‘Bite my Butterfinger!’, ‘Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger!’ and ‘Nothin’ like a Butterfinger’. In an especially clever piece of marketing most of these commercials were released on The Simpsons DVD sets as bonus features along with other commercials.

Only available in Australia from specialist stores like Moo-Lolly-Bar, Butterfinger also has a sister product, Butterfinger Crisp bars, which take the form of a chocolate-covered wafer cookie, filled with a Butterfinger flavoured cream and covered in chocolate, which many people actually believe tastes better than the original.

American Chocolate Showcase #3 – 3 Musketeers

25 Jul

Buy Bulk 3 Musketeers Online at Moo-Lolly-Bar Australia

One of Mars Incorporated’s best selling chocolate bars, 3 Musketeers has enjoyed widespread popularity ever since it burst onto the confectionery scene back in 1932.

Originally packaged as three different flavours – chocolate, strawberry and vanilla, hence the inspiration for the name – the product changed to its current format of a light, fluffy bar of chocolate flavored nougat smothered in milk chocolate during the war, as a result of cost cutting measures and an adaption to wartime rations on sugar.

Manufactured in three separate facilities across North America including Chicago in Illinois, Elizabethtown in Pennsylvania and Newmarket in Canada, the product is made in very specific stages. Firstly the nougat centre is created by painstakingly whipping egg whites until they are light and frothy. After that sugar syrup is introduced to the mix which acts to create a stabilizing ‘frappe’ effect. Once this has been achieved and a selection of other flavouring ingredients are added to the frappe, the mix is then formed into extremely large slabs which are then cut to size. Now properly formed the centres are enrobed with milk chocolate via a process whereupon they pass through a flowing waterfall of chocolate liquid. Congruently, a rotating chocolate covered wheel which is situated beneath the mesh belt coats the base of the bar.

When 3 Musketeers first went on sale they cost five cents and were proudly advertised as one of the largest chocolate bars on the market at that time and one you could share with family or friends. Nowadays however, the marketing message has changed somewhat to reflect its current positioning as a ‘Nice, Light Snack’ that features ‘45% less fat’ than other chocolate bars currently available.
