Mini Peeps, Skippy Singles, and More Products We Tried
The Daily Meal is bringing you weekly roundups of the best new food and drink products on the market. From unusual snacks and drinks, to new flavors of your favorite products, we’ve got you covered so you don’t have to scour the Internet or the shelves of your local grocery store to find out what’s new.
Forget worm-shaped or bear-shaped gummy candies. Wonka is going “totally random” with Wonka Randoms, a new gummy candy in which every bag contains a unique mix of over 70 random shapes, three textures, and seven flavors, from cherry roller skates to grape unicorns.
Drazil Kids Tea is the solution to getting your child to drink antioxidant-rich tea, the previously-stuffy “adult’s drink.” Drazil Kids Tea looks like a juice box, and comes in punch passion, tropical burst, grape bliss, and yummy berry.
Peeps are finally going bite-sized. Just Born, the company that produces the sugary marshmallow treats, will now be producing shrunken Mini Peeps that will be available all year round, not just for Easter.
Indulge in a little bit of dessert without overdoing it with Just Enough of a (Very) Good Thing, a single-serving parfait-like dessert that can be found in the frozen section of Whole Foods supermarkets. Flavors include key lime and tiramisu.
Now we’ve seen it all (when it comes to vodka flavors, that is). The newest flavored vodka on the block is UV Vodka Sugar Crush, a super sweet, slightly tart vodka that smells like a candy shop and tastes like a candy necklace. Try mixing it with sprite for a sweet take on a vodka soda.
Corazonas Healthy Snacks are heart-healthy alternatives to calorie-laden cookies with flavors like chocolate brownie and almonds, chocolate coconut macaroon, and white chocolate macadamia that are low-sodium and contain at least 15-16 grams of whole grain each.
Now you don’t have to buy the whole jar to get your peanut butter fix. Skippy now comes in Skippy Singles, with individual snack-sized cups. For now, the only available variety is creamy.
Tap 537 Canadian Maple Rye Whiskey combines the boldness of spicy cask-aged rye whiskey with the natural sweetness of genuine Canadian maple.
Jam doesn’t have to boring. Sweet Diversions Jam mixes it up with unique flavors like fresh strawberries combined with balsamic vinegar and black pepper, blood oranges with vanilla bean, and tomato infused with basil.
