“ Popping candy designed to spice up activity in the bedroom. Not suitable for all parts of the body however, and the product itself is nothing new. „
In memory of Annice Goodwin (1941 - 2012) who was known as Ann Summers.
I'll have a go at anything so long it isn't illegal or cause skin irritations, for me, it is a case of trial or error when it comes to trying out new products - generally, I stay away from dairy-products when it comes to bedroom antics due to having an immediate reaction back in the early 'noughties'.
Candy Fizzlers which are available in Ann Summers retail outlets across the UK - 3 GBP for two sachets.
Initially I opted for the Candy Fizzlers when I purchased a Strawberry lube partly because both products taste of strawberry - except for one, the lube was an imitation of synthetic fraise artificialness. So, I and my partner opted out of the Candy Fizzlers that night, because we assumed the product would taste the same - and neither of us could stomach it on that occasion. 'Once bitten, twice shy - I'm that kind of guy'. I'm also rather nervous when it comes to edibles anyhow especially if the product isn't available in Tesco or been experimented with by a 'Master-Chef' contestant - who use seductive language in expressing their culinary delights, you would of thought the name: 'Sizzling Body Candy' should be a dessert in it's own right - up there with the traditional 'Spotted Dick'.
The sachet is slightly perforated at the edge for easy access. Inside are sizeable crystals, bigger than expected - they look not dissimilar to a successful chemistry experiment - apart from the fact they're candy and have an aromatic scent of sweet strawberries. Scent isn't always a good indication of what these sorts of products taste like - especially if they're deemed erotic. Not that the crystals portray eroticism at all - but maybe I lost the gist of what the manufacture had in mind. They're far more experienced than I am when it comes to erotic products, having been at it since 1970. Naturally, my sweet-tooth got the better of me having got a waft of the sweet strawberry packaging - so I made a promise to my better-half she needn't try the naughty Candy Fizzlers and I was happy to be the guinea pig - purely on the grounds of my own inquisitiveness stroke kinkiness. I opened the sachet and shook out the contents on her cupped wet cleavage the smooth candy crystals immediately started popping, the fizzing made her squeal with delight, hardly a erotic moan. When I licked off the crystal particles my mouth was greeted with popping candy followed by a strong nostalgic taste of strawberry dancing on my taste-buds. My agreeable sounds prompted my girlfriend to join me.
We soon opened the second sachet - as we're both of a similar age, we both recognised our child-hood taste of strawberry, the same type that got us frequenting the sweet-shop after school. I doubt the product was designed for a nostalgic peruse down memory lane - hence, why the product is for a youthful market rather than for our age group? Notably it prompted a sporadic discussion neither of us expected. Profoundly not erotic, but nevertheless worth experiencing - Yes, the popping sensation prompted impish behaviour, it transported us back to our childhoods' - via 'tingle and taste'. Not exactly a place to venture while engaging into foreplay - on that premise, I prefer the 'Sizzling Body Candy' on a strawberries and cream dessert, other than on our erogenous zones - A definite 'no-go' down below.
A curtain drawer when it comes to eroticism, we both had to shower due to the stickiness - afraid of getting the sticky residue all over the sheets. Extensive product research is required here for it to be labelled erotic, Jackie Gold? Not recommended as a sensual sex aid.
~ Ann Summers Sizzling Body Candy ~I bought this for my hubby as a joke Valentines gift. I love popping candy so thought I couldn't go wrong with it and I was right.Inside the packaging you get two foil pouches which inside contains the popping candy. You can trail this over your body and have fun licking it off!The flavour of the popping crystals is strawberry yum!It can get a little messy but it is fun, the pouches are quite difficult to open and when you eventually rip into them expect a bit of spillage!The popping candy adds a bit of fun into foreplay.For a naughty treat this is fun but regular popping candy is cheaper and just as good!Thanks for reading :o) x
Sometimes my husband and I like to try something a little different to spice things up or just to see what a product that has caught our eye is like. I actually spotted this body candy in Ann Summers while I was out shopping with my best friend and I figured that it would be a laugh to buy this and try it out as a surprise
with my husband.
I paid £3 for this Body Candy and there were two sachets of strawberry flavoured body candy within the box. The packaging was nothing special but also was distinctive as being something a little sparkly with it's red colouring on the box. Each sachet was simple to open with a small tear section that you just pull and it rips the top off the sachet. Then you just pour the candy where you want it and you're ready to go!
This body candy is just popping candy basically and it is said to start to fizz spectacularly when it is sprinkled on the body. Obviously you can then lick it or suck it off the body, depending on where you place it or what you want to do. This body candy is quite large in size and there is lots of it considering its only 16g in weight per sachet. This candy looks bright and shiny when applied and really does look quite appetising.
Now when we applied this we didn't notice that it really fizzed and to be honest it only starts to fizz when its in the mouth so that claim is incorrect as far as we are concerned. As this really is just popping candy dressed up as body candy it is only going to start popping when its wet and this therefore is when you lick it or suck it off.
This candy does have a lovely strawberry flavour to it. This candy pops lots and makes lots of noise, it can be a little sharp if it gets under your tongue but that hasn't happened much when we've used it.
This candy does pop, regardless of where you lick it off from, but should not be used on more delicate areas on either men or women as it can cause problems that make said area uncomfortable. I believe it did say this on the packaging too but of course it is easy to not bother reading this sort of information if you're caught up in the moment of trying out your new product!
I would rate this 3/5. This is a reasonable product but cannot be used on all areas of the body so is therefore not body candy in every sense. The price was reasonable and the novelty of this product was quite fun but I wouldn't be very interested in trying this again and I doubt my husband would either!
I do love a little fun in the bedroom! Earlier this year, I purchased an adult version of connect 4, where you could line up any combination of activities, and the person to get four in a row would win . One of the counters I particularly liked was the 'Lick With Edibles' one, which I would play on every conceivable occasion .
However, I soon realised that actually finding suitable edibles after winning the game doesn't work . It just results in scrounging around the kitchen looking for anything that might spread. It was after getting into an incredibly messy situation with a pot of Marmite ( which ended up with one very sticky cat regretting its curiosity! ) that my boyfriend and I decided we should perhaps have a look for some suitable items to keep to handy.
With Ann Summers being on my way to work, I had a look in one day, and came out with quite a collection of edibles, including Sizzling Body Candy, which retails at £3 for 2 x 16g sachets, in a strawberry flavour.
The company claim that if you sprinkle these on your body, they will start t0 'fizz spectacularly' begging to be licked or sucked off . Opening the sachet was easy, there is a small indentation where you can tear the packet open, and you can simply shake out of the packet onto your skin . The candy crystals are actually quite larger, and are surprisingly bright and glossy in appearance. They almost look like shining jewels!
So, about this spectacular fizzing. Well, I popped a little onto my stomach - and it just sat there, doing absolutely nothing . Ditto for the bit I popped onto my boobs. Now, anybody who has ever eaten popping candy knows that it doesn't pop in your hand, only once it gets into your mouth and comes into contact with moisture, so it probably isn't so surprising that it really didn't do anything just sitting on those areas . However, when my boyfriend licked it off, he did report a nice, if overly sweet strawberry flavour and a jumping sensation in his mouth.
Having a little lick of this off of my boyfriends chest, I can confirm that this is a relatively pleasant tasting thing, although I have to say I do not actually think the popping element really does anything to add to the eroticism of the moment . In fact, I would go so far as to say that the popping is a little off putting, and encourages giggles rather than sensuality.
However, knowing that is is moisture that makes these fizz, I had one more experiment in mind - and this is where the more prudish amongst you may choose to look away. Deciding that it was actually rather annoying and loud having this popping in my mouth, I did think of one naturally moist area where the popping sensation might be quite pleasant, and where I wouldn't be able to hear it - my lady garden .
A generous sprinkling produced a very very mild stimulating effect as the crystals started to fizz. I don't know if the sensation was pleasant exactly, but it was quite strange!
Overall, I think this is fun to try, but it would be much more economical to buy popping candy from the corner shop, as apart from a darker colour and a glossier appearance, I don't really know that this is any different.
3 stars - mildly entertaining if not particularly sensual, and hugely overpriced for what it is .
