My five-year-old daughter Ella and I reviewed Candylicious Edible Bubbles yesterday. She was really thrilled to taste and try out the new toy. With summer here, we are always looking for new things to take to play dates. Edible bubbles, I mean what better way to treat your friends to a little Willy Wonka-like magic?
Our Candylicious kit came with 20 ounces of grape flavoring. It is even kosher! Bubble solutions can often be messy, but I can report that this was easy to pour and handle. All I had to do is tear open the package and add it to the Bubble Wand. This wand was something we had never seen before. The “Bubble Ninja” character on top has a big pink tongue that, when squeezed, pops out. Much like Ella, he was excited to taste the bubbles. This was a big hit with her. She could easily blow bubbles and was delighted to try to pop them mid-air with her our tongue. I got to taste the bubbles and am delighted to report they are yummy, tasting a bit like grape soda or a grape popsicle. There was no problem with any stains or spills. We even tried them out inside with a friend.
Our home has several different bubble wands and devices, and we use them almost daily. This new edible style has become number one on her list of things to do. New Candylicious flavors have already been requested. I found that cherry, tutti frutti, bubble gum, and strawberry pineapple are available at our local Toys”R”Us or right on their website. Price for a starter kit is $5.99. A refill of the solution is $3.99. There is even a Candylicious bubble machine available for $14.99.
Such a cool twist on childhood tradition. This will be my new go-to gift for birthday parties all year.
Thank you to the folks at Little Kids Inc. for providing us with not one but two sample starter kits.
Here are the facts from the web page.
Each Candylicious Bubbles pouch comes with 20 mL of edible bubble solution and a bubble wand. Available in four delicious flavors – cherry, grape, bubble gum, and tutti frutti. Great for party favors!
