Chocolate covered kisses


    The ol' candy man Mr.Wonka would be proud and envious. The Cherry Chocolate first shined back in 1976 as a holiday flavor, along with Chocolate Mint, Sugar Plum and Peppermint. Luckily, Bonne Bell understood how tasty it was and brought it out of hiding! I about fainted when I saw the liquid counterpart they made as well! It is now Julius' Chocolate Cherry and a part of the Paul Frank collection. It smells heavenly, just like chocolate covered cherries. Dare I say it's tastier than the real thing?

Crushin'

Here's a crush that won't break your heart. (okay, okay...sorry) The Orange Crush Lip Smacker. And Grape Crush. And Strawberry Crush. And at one point, Cherry Crush was also available. Orange Crush smashed its way into the Lip Smacker family in 1979, following closely behind with Grape Crush, Strawberry Crush, and Cherry Crush. Somewhere along the way in the 80's they fizzled out, leaving everyone to settle for the Orange Pop Lip Smacker that was always hiding behind Orange Crushs' shadow. (Which was JUST as tasty!) NO FEAR! Bonne Bell relaunched these babies back in 2003 and Grape Crush has been in my pocket or somewhere near ever since! Strawberry Crush made a comeback in 2010 in the Dr Pepper & friends Party Pack. They also liquidfied the popular flavor this year, in a cute soda pop bottle. (At Target, btw) So whos lips out there pitter patter for the Crush Smackers!?

Just Peachy...

Peach Lip Smacker circa 1976 above & 2011 below

Oh my, Peach Lip Smacker, how've you grown up! I haven't seen the original Peach Lip Smacker last, since the early 00's when it was discontinued. Now they do make Berry Peach nowadays, but it just isn't the same. I used to ADORE this flavor and to my surprise when I was breezing through the store the other day, low and behold I came across a Peach LIQUID Lip Smacker! I was smiling ear to ear! AND it smells JUST like the ORIGINAL!
