Melville's Mulling Spice Spoons

After my experience with Melville’s Maple Sugar Spoons, I was determined to give a different flavor another try. I was really keen on giving the honey versions to try, but as soon as I started hunting them down I couldn’t find them for the life of me. I found the Mulling Spice Spoons instead, and figured that these will have to do in the meantime. It seems to be one of those situations that as soon as I stop looking, they’ll magically find me somehow.

These spoons are the same format as the Maple Sugar spoons I had before. A large chunk of hard candy shaped like a spoon, with a beautifully crafted wooden handle sticking out of one end. The candy part of these spoons are a bright, semi opaque fire engine red.

Of course these are meant to be stirred into a mug of apple juice or apple cider. I tried that as well as eating it as is.

The flavor is very much like a coating of a candy apple. Fake apple flavor with a hint of spicy cinnamon. I hesitate to call it a “mulled” flavor, as mulling spices are more about the elements of allspice, clove and orange peel in my mind. On it’s own the spoon tasted sort of lackluster, granted I prefer this fake apple cinnamon flavor to the sour apple of a Jolly Rancher, but it still doesn’t do anything for me. In a mug of cider, I do get the sweetness and the hit of cinnamon. The fake apple flavor is masked by the juice.

Again, not terribly impressed with these. I liked them better than the Maple Sugar Spoons. I’m still going to give the honey ones a go if I ever come across them.
