Sixlets are, without a doubt, one of those childhood favorites. I used to love getting a tube and eating the little balls by putting the wrapper in my mouth and sliding the ball out with my teeth.

These crunchy, colorful, candy coated, milk chocolate pieces are not only fun to eat but they offer something different than similar candies such as M&Ms. The different colored candy shells actually have slightly different flavors making these even more irresistible. Also, the chocolate is made of a carob and cocoa mixture, which adds for a touch more diversity. Nine little balls come in a traditional cellophane package of Sixlet candy, but if you’re feeling wild you can get the twelve-ball tube or even the twenty-ball tube.

Leaf Confections, which is a SweetWorks Company, is the one responsible for the manufacturing of this wonderful candy. From the SweetWorks website, “The goal of SweetWorks is to give customers rich quality products and great customer service, while striving to make the best even better. SweetWorks takes great pride in celebrating over a half-century of providing pleasure, quality and unique products for our consumers worldwide.”

They are working with some pretty bold statements here, but I’ve got to say, Sixlets are pretty good and they do provide pleasure, quality, and uniqueness.
