My name is Lauren, and I am a grad student studying food science. I started collecting candy bar wrappers in 2006 (view gallery here) and have since tried over 1000 different types of candies. I am most interested in new and limited edition candy and candy from different countries.
I frequently share candy with my labmates and friends, and they suggested that I start a candy review blog.
Each candy is rated based on its appearance, taste and flavor, texture, aftertaste, and overall opinion. The 9 point hedonic scale (seen below) is used as the rating scale. The ratings are averaged from scores given by multiple people (my labmates, me, and sometimes other grad students within the food science department).
