It has been suggested that the new Hockeypucker candy is simply a way to eat Hockeypulver without looking like a moran.
I, on the other hand, maintain that Hockeypucker is nothing more than a new name for Lakrisal, and tastes nothing like Hockeypulver.
So for today’s experiment, I ground up both these and compared them to the powder. It’s a zero-blind experiment, since I’m all post-positivist and stuff.
|Grind grind grind
|Pucker, Lakrisal and Pulver
Lakrisal is a lot harder than Pucker. I had to grind and grind and grind, and it still didn’t get very smooth.
The Pulver, on the other hand, is super-duper smooth. Soo smooth.
All the three taste quite different, though. Pulver has a pure salmiak flavour, with a bit of liquorice. Lakrisal tastes a lot more liquoricish. And Pucker tastes a lot less salmiak and liquorice than either of the other two.
Pulver is the winner. The other two are just pitiful in comparison.
So, in summary: There’s no way to get satisfaction without looking like a moran.
