This blog has had a lot of discussion about our favorite candy. Well, since childhood, this has been my pick:
It's surprising, because I'm normally a purist, but it's not TOO surprising, because it's extremely delicious. And those Belgians really do know how to do hazelnut praline.
So I think over the years, Guylian has cut out the partially hydrogenated oils from this product. I remember that being a leading ingredient when I was younger, but now the most unnatural thing seems to be vanillin. Honestly, though, I don't even care what's in it, which is what makes it candy. It is simply DELICIOUS.
I spent a month in Nairobi, and the pickings there were unsurprisingly slim. But the Nakumatt -- think East African Walmart -- carried Guylian's, so I was safe. They even had a decent dark chocolate bar -- unlike the sugarfree ones they offer in the US. This is what I survived on when I was running out of my last fancy European bars and then a dog ate the remainder.
Bottom Line: David's vote for best candy.
