As you have read in the past, I LOVE Mike and Ike candy! I don’t think I have tried a flavor that I didn’t like, so I was VERY excited to get to try the two Retro flavors, Root Beer Float and Cotton Candy!!! Exciting right! You bet! All things I love! Mike and Ike candy, Retro stuff, Cotton Candy and Root Beer! When my candy arrived I couldn’t get over the super cute packaging! Even my daughter let out a super huge “Awwwww!” when she first laid eyes on them! She even plans to add them to her candy themed room somehow…we are thinking of maybe decoupaging the boxes along with our other favorite Mike and Ike boxes to her dresser! Wouldn’t that be cute!?! Anyway! After we tried each flavor, we were even more excited! They are super duper tasty! Yum Yum! Mike and Ike never disappoints!
The Cotton Candy comes in pink and blue, but are both Cotton Candy flavored, and are super delish! They taste JUST like the real things and I have decided that I need to stock up on these things…I can’t imagine life without these tasty little babies 😉
The Root Beer Float, also delicious, comes in second place, but I would love to buy a ton more none the less! They are pretty darn root beer like and are super addicting! If you love root beer you are sure to love these!
Not only are these a tasty treat any old time, but I just had this thought…these would be SUPER cute for a gender reveal party!! What do ya think?? Perfect, right?!
My kids love Mike and Ike candy just like I do, but we have unanimously decided that the Cotton Candy is the official current favorite flavor of the Homemaking Heather household! MMM!
