Now, to say I'm not a Twilight fan is to understate the case. But I appreciate a bit of silly tie-in marketing as much as the next person. And the box made it quite explicit that these candies sparkle. How could I resist sparkle candy? I love candy… I love sparkles… what's not to like?
Even cynical though I may be, my cynicism circuit failed me. These candies don't sparkle, save for exceptionally generous uses of the word "sparkle." If you tilt them carefully under a bright light and scrutinize them closely, then yes, there is a hint of a sugar crystal sort of coating. It sort of reminds me of that faint touch of glitter you find in a fancy composite or granite floor, like in a bank lobby.
