There’s a new store that opened not too far away that is a second rate wonderland and inspired me to hop back on the blogging horse. I can’t tell you how awesome this place is, aisle after aisle has shelves full of beautiful knock-off products. I had to put stuff back as my arms filled up with products (I didn’t get a cart thinking I wouldn’t find much to buy) and have plenty of excuses to visit again.
We found snack-size candies called Jive that use the same format at Twix so we dusted off the white backdrop, set up the tripod and got to work!
Upon unwrapping this treat, the smell of chocolate was extremely tempting. There’s no turning back once unwrapped. Twix is such a perfect candy bar, the smoothness of the chocolate, richness of the caramel and crisp crunch of the cookie work so well together. Ethan especially liked the flavor of the cookie but like with the textures, the flavors of all three elements compliment each other perfectly. We both agreed the little snack size left us wanting more.
The first thing I noticed was the absence of any chocolatey smell. The textures were okay but the caramel didn’t taste like anything and the cookie seemed to be lacking some flavor. In all, it was just okay but definitely didn’t leave us wanting more.
Jive is all jive. I had high hopes for it since the cashier was raving about how awesome they were but it to us, there is nothing like the reliable taste and texture of the real deal.
