Albanese 12 Flavor Gummi Bears III

Hello, I’m Sera. Welcome to my candy blog.

In case you haven’t guessed, I’m head-over-heels in love with confectionaries. It all started with my unusually large sweet-tooth, paired with an adventurous palate, and a need to document it all.

If you ever have any suggestions, ideas (or both!) I’m always open to them. You can reach me at: sera (at)

NOTE: Please, please, please do not take any of the photos on this site. I spent a lot of time and energy taking the photos myself and I wish for them to remain original to the blog. Thank you.

My goal as The Candy Enthusiast is to try everything once so you don’t have to. I think that’s pretty sweet, don’t you?


Happy Birthday!

The Candy Enthusiast is 4 years old today! I can’t believe it, my how time flies!

GooGoo Clusters

I decided this morsel of candy news was more sweet than a picture today. The GooGoo Cluster, the famed first combination candy bar in the US, is going through a re-formulation and update. You can read the full article here! It’s interesting to me how a “classic” candy like this is getting an update. Many people seek it out for the nostalgia factor, which I think some fear will disappear with the changes. Other classic candies, like Snickers, has gone through changes over the year is still a beloved favorite. I am familiar with the “old” formula (which is pictured above) and I hope to find some of these new GooGoo clusters and give them a try.


Mast Brothers Chocolate Bars

I wanted to share this really cool article from that shows how the Mast Brothers, a pair of chocolatiers in Brooklyn, NY make their chocolate. So why not head on over and check out this video. It’s a fun watch!
