ANNOUNCEMENT: I’m Taking a Vacation

Hi there!

I’m taking a short break.

No, I’m not doing so to reassess my life because I’ve realized the food we’re reviewing is bad for everyone. I just need a little vacation. So there will be no posts this week, but they will be popping up again on Monday, November 3rd.

I apologize if this might mess with your procrastination ritual at work or school, but if you need a little TIB in your life, you can go through almost all of our past reviews using the “Reviews” menu at the top of the page. I said “almost” because I haven’t finished listing all of the 2013 reviews, which is really something I should do since I now have a little free time.

See you in a few days!

ANNOUNCEMENT: Introducing Candyology 101

Candyology Cover Small

Um, so, I started another podcast, and it’s a candy podcast, called Candyology 101.

Well, it’s not just me. There’s also Cybele from Candy Blog, Lauren from Candy Bar Reviews, and Maria from Sometimes Foodie. And, actually, I’m not at all in the show. I’m just the producer. So I can just sit back and relax while they geek out over candy.

In the inaugural episode, the three of them discuss fall flavors, Halloween candy, and trick-or-treating. The show notes are available at the Candyology 101 blog.

You can listen to the episode now using the player below:

Or you download the MP3 file. If you want to subscribe to the show, it’s available on iTunes and via RSS. Also, we’re currently in the process of getting it on Stitcher.

Enjoy!
