Sugar Needle

review zine, #17, 16 pgs, $?, Corina Fastwolf, PO Box 300152, Minneapolis, MN 55403 or Phlox, 1174 Briardiff, Apt. 2, Atlanta, GA 30306

This is a great little zine, in which Corina and Phlox bravely try all kinds of crazy scary candy from around the world so you don’t have to. This issue features glucose-fueled evaluations of hot pepper soda, Slovenian gummy pyramids, and French caramels made from sea salt, among others. Reviews are handwritten and illustrated with photocopies and hand-drawn facsimiles of candy labels. An entertaining read, whether you love candy or merely like it. (Wendy Banks)
