Kumquat Throat Candy

OK, OK. We get it: a treat marketed as "throat candy" is far less likely to inspire swooning or even sampling than a pillowy marshmallow or a crisp chocolate-covered biscuit, but in this case, we'd urge you to reconsider. Floral citrus is punctuated by a menthol hit — where the lozenge aspect comes in — making these hard candies a stellar swap for a bag of Halls come next sore throat. In the meantime, we'll be enjoying these solely for their unusual flavor.
