Oozing Halloween Sweets: Sky Bar Zombie Food
I love the influence that the runaway popularity of shows like Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, and iZombie have had on Halloween holiday candy! More oozing red "bloody" fillings, more references to cannibalism, an overall darker and more twisted tone. Wonderful! Zombie Food is brought to us by the classic Sky Bar and constitutes chocolates in the shape of a foot, brain, or heart filled with oozing red-colored caramel. They're delicious and vaguely repulsive and thus ideal for the holiday. The caramel filling is a thick syrupy consistency with a robust flavor, heavy on sugar and light on the buttery elements. There's only one complaint: the colorful yet flimsy wrapper doesn't properly protect the fragile milk chocolate shell and these get absurdly messy if crushed. Their form necessitates more structured packaging. A unique treat ideal for Halloween!
