  • DeCarlo Rules: What I don't understand is why they're trying to discourage subscriptions to B&V FRIENDS Jumbo digest. It's been published at 10 times per year frequency for the last 3 years -- just like the other B&V jumbo digest. So if they're both published just as often, why do they offer a choice of 10 issue or 20 issue subscriptions for BETTY & VERONICA, but only a 6 issue subscription for B&V FRIENDS? You can get a 12-issue subscription to B&V FRIENDS on the website, but if I remember correctly, the printed ad for subs only offers the 6-issue sub option. Why isn't it the same option as the other digests (10 issues or 20 issues), if they're all published 10 times a year? And they ARE.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Just looked at Archie Comics' subsciption page. Archie Meets Batman '66 is a six-issue miniseries. Archie 1941 is a five-issue miniseries. There's a six-issue subscription for Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever and Vixens (surprisingly; might get transferred to the new B&V title) and a twelve-issue subscription for Riverdale. Riverdale Digest isn't listed, so it looks like it's been cancelled.

  • CAPalace: I'm a woman btw and I'm just so sick of the blatant anti-men thing going on in comics these days. It's not doing women any favors either. :/
    July 09, 2018, 09:05:40 PM
  • CAPalace: They're banking on Archie 700 to sell a lot because "lol a new number wow lol" and it will for the first issue but it'll just go back to the average/poor numbers it had before. And YOU KNOW with that writer on B+V it's going to turn into an anti-men, oooh girl power lol violence against men and demeaning men is feminism and fun lol lol Good luck. I'll stick to Ebay to find the DeCarlo stuff thanks.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I'm looking forward to the new B&V series. Personally, I think that previous B&V series by what's-his-name was way worse than anything that Rotante wrote on Vixens.
    July 09, 2018, 08:43:47 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So, so predictable... they love to exploit NUMBERS, whether it's a single digit (1 or 0) or a triple-digit ending in 00. Good lord, I can't believe they're actually giving Jamie Rotante ANOTHER B&V series to write ruin! She is the worst I've read -- although it's a tough call, Marguerite Bennett was pretty horrible as well. Nick Spencer can actually be quite good as a writer... or pretty bad, depending on the character and the direction. He was great on ANT-MAN and SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN (both books that had a strong humorous subtext), and not so hot on CAPTAIN AMERICA and THE AVENGERS. And he's he new writer on (yet another) first issue of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, so I wouldn't guess the ARCHIE gig will last. ACP could probably only afford to hire him for that ONE issue, #700.

    July 05, 2018, 12:14:16 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So both ARCHIE and RIVERDALE are "on hiatus"? That means ACP has no ongoing floppy comic titles. Not a good sign. Good thing they still have the digests going (knock on wood).

What is your favourite candy/chocolate?
« on: April 26, 2016, 03:57:53 PM »
Mine are a candy that I loved back in South Africa that they don't seem to have here in America called Fizzers. They have 3 flavours(Strawberry, Bluebuzz(Mixed Fruit), and Cream Soda) and they also fizz in your mouth. They are also chewy.

In America I like these. Hershey Special Dark Chocolate Bar. They are not available in South Africa. The only Hershey's chocolate I have ever seen in my life in South Africa and it hasn't been many times were the Kisses, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and Regular Hershey Bar.

I also really love these. These can actually be found in South Africa, but not like here in America.

I love Haribo gummies! They are better than the rest. You can find them here in the States but usually only in specialty shops. Of course there's always amazon. I really like the soda flavored gummies by Haribo. It tastes a bit like Lemon Bitters.

Hmmm, chewy AND fizzy? They look to be about the same texture as Tootsie Rolls - which are usually chocolate flavored, but not actually made with chocolate, although I know they've produced other flavors. I guess you'd call Tootsie Rolls basically taffy-like, it's the fizzy that throws me, because while we've had various kinds of fizzy candy products, none of them have been the least bit Tootsie Roll-like.

Various brands of gummy bears are pretty common over here. There are a lot of commonly available gummy candies, like Gummi Worms or Swedish Fish. In fact it's so common that they make gummy vitamins - for adults!

there's a company called Theo in Seattle that makes great chocolate but there are a lot of good ones.  I'm vegan so I stick to dark chocolate and I especially love dark chocolate bars with quinoa or peanut butter mixed in.

Fizzers are like taffy but the fizz is actually quite weird. When you chew into the candy and bite a fizz area of the candy you will get a strong fizzy burst in your mouth. Other times you eat the candy you may miss those areas and won't get the fizzy sensation as much.

From your description, it sounds like they took a taffy-type candy and put Pop Rocks inside the taffy. Pop Rocks (which irishmoxie mentioned earlier) are just like the 'fizz areas' you describe, but it's just those, and they fizz and pop in your mouth. I don't know if they're easy to find in stores any more, but they used to be a lot more popular years ago. You can still buy them on Amazon. There are a lot of 'nostalgia candy' companies now that specialize in older candies that used to be popular, but you don't find commonly in stores any more, but they'll ship them to you by mail.

Yep, it is kinda of like that.
