A four-person team from Sticky International Snack Reviews periodically samples candy from around the world and rates it in an ongoing series of social media videos.

Recently the group tasted salted egg golden cubes from Malaysia, pastries from France and chocolate from Canada.

In their quirky Dayton-centric video, four Sticky employees open a golden box of Esther Price assorted chocolates sent to them by “Dorothy in Ohio.”

One of the reviewers holds up her piece of candy topped with a pecan. “I’ve never had a pecan,” she said.

“Dark chocolate with a creamy center, that’s awesome,” said a happy tester after a fudgy bite. “Esther Price, hats off!”
