Certs is a breath freshening candy, which has been around for years. Their claim to fame is Retsyn, a compound that gives it a green colour. This was used to make it seem more special than other mints, which allowed them to be the number one breath freshening mint sellers. Good on them! But we don't really care about that. We want to know how it tastes in vodka.
This is how they come, just in a tube like Life Savers.

For a while, I have been a bit under the weather. I have had a bit of a cold. I decided that instead of letting that keep me down, I was going to include it, if possible, for drinks. That's where Halls comes into play.
So just a classic package of them ready to rock.

For a long while, I was a little entranced with the "Unicorn Blood - Cola Balls Vodka" that I made. It was different for sure, and it was pretty to boot. I wanted to recreate the magic, so I decided to go for the best part of the experience. I decided to go for the glitter.
So I figured why not start off with pure glitter, and then work backwards? This time let's go with five colours instead.
Look at them... They think they're the Might Ducks.

There is a show called Archer, which happens to be one of my favourite things to watch these days. While it is not as great as previous seasons, there is still quite the allure. Who is his dad? Can he tame the ocelot? How does a Green Russian taste?
A Green Russian is a drink that the HR person named Pam coined. It has two ingredients. One is Absinthe... And the other.

Since I had completed the Double Bubble Gum Vodka previously, I was curious what Chiclet vodka would taste like. Both seemed to have their bonuses, though one was far more minty.
I got this four pack for $1.00. Then I went to another store and found out if I spent $2.00 there, I could have had 50 boxes of them. Son of a... I say that because I would have added a lot more.

I was stumbling through a candy store, looking for new candies. Lately I have been looking for brand name candies that I haven't done, but most of them have been completed already. This lead me to the fringe. The shop keeper pointed me to these Cherry Mega Sours. He said they were more sour than War Heads, so I knew I had to give them a shot.
These are what they look like up close. I must say that they are certainly more sour than War Heads, though that may be just based on the size. I did notice that my sister was unable to complete finishing one off in a single go, so they do seem to be more sour.

Anyone remember Candy Buttons? As a kid they were just sugary buttons, less than the size of a button, and really they were pure sugar. Remembering that, I decided to melt a couple down for shots!
