Hey, if it’s good enough for Francois Payard…

Just stumbled across this in the new New York Magazine: The Candy Bar Taste Test. They blindfolded pastry god Payard and fed him exactly the kinds of candy I’ve been so tempted by lately. Results are, predictably, mixed, but I’m surprised at how much good he had to say. His winners: Dove Milk Chocolate (though I suspect there’s a typo in his assessment–he says it’s clearly dark chocolate, and this strikes me as a near-impossible mistake for him to make), Caramello (my brother A’s all-time favorite), Nestle Crunch, and Baci. Sadly, he didn’t get to savor the magical treat known as Twix.
