Candy Talk, Episode 24: Zingerman’s

Do you like your candy bars as though they materialized from 1960s Batman episodes? Zzang! Wowza! Dorf! Ok we made up that last one. But for all the silly-sounding names, Zingerman’s candy bars are some serious confection contenders.

Listen as the Candy Talk team dissects the bars like a delicious high school biology lab, wonders what candy bars we’d make if left to follow our passions, and contemplates if there is an amount of nougat so vast from which there is no return. Don’t miss out: this episode has the Adam West Seal of Approval!*

Candy Talk, Episode 18: Custom Candy Bars

What if you could create your own candy bar from the ground up? Would you use that power for good…or evil? In this episode the Candy Talk team morphs into chocolatiers and takes the build-a-bar challenge.

Join us as we reveal the sometimes peculiar history of chocolate bars (which classic candy bar was forced into an unholy trinity with mayonnaise and tomatoes? are you appropriately worried about avoiding neck gauntness?) and then alternately surprise and horrify each other with our haute couture concoctions. Which bars did we expect to like but didn’t?  And which one was the surprising winner supreme?
