Sugar Daddies is a podcast – run by two grown men – that reviews seasonal, limited edition, and obscure candies and sweets. Some of us (Alex has 3 human kids) are more daddies than others (Chris has 1 dog). We both love food and weird things. Come, listen and enjoy!
End of the First Season Finale Part Two: The Second Half (Episode 35b)
We complete season one with the second half of Alex’s trip to Lolli And Pops. It’s a tale of sweet and sour and seaweed and pickles. Lolli and Pops’ Chris Cruz continues to tell us what’s what, and we continue to listen. Thanks for listening to our first season! We’ll be back in a few weeks after we take some time to relax, think about cool new ways to entertain you, and probably eat some candy. Want more Sugar Daddies... Read More Read More
Like An Adult In A Candy Store (Episode 35a)
As we wrap up our first season of Sugar Daddies, Alex decides to venture outside of the studio and into a candy store: Lolli And Pops in Ridgedale Center. After a sweet, culinary tour of the shop by the store’s procurer, Chris Cruz, Alex brought back some goodies to share with Chris. The haul of sweets is so big, we’re doing a two-parter. So sit back, and salivate to the sounds of part one. Want more Sugar Daddies during the... Read More Read More
Soda Time Machine 2: Flavors from the 4th Dimension (Episode 34)
Pepsi travels back in time and steps sideways to bring us flavors from an alternate past. How does this 1893 differ from our own? Did Grover Cleveland take America off the gold standard and move it to the grapefruit standard? Did the Ottoman Empire’s Currant War drive up the price and cause them to become a status symbol? Am I struggling to come up with these blurbs? None of these questions will be answered in today’s timey-wimey episode. Want more... Read More Read More
Don’t Look a Gift Peep in the Beak (Episode 33)
Once again we dive into the Easter aisle, and attempt to make a dent in the spring seasonal candy offerings. We take a look at three heavy hitters of the candy world doing riffs on their classics. It’s pretty much the freestyle rap battle of candy, but instead of words and beats it’s sugar and artificial flavors. Want more Sugar Daddies during the week?

Sweet Smell of Cheetos (Episode 32)
Cheetos comes out swinging with their own sweet spring snack, Sweetos. This McRib of the snack aisle has been a fan favorite since 2015. This year they have a new trick up their sleeve with Sweetos Caramel Puffs. Let’s see if Frito Lay can capture lightning in a bottle twice with the newest entry into the Sweetos line.

Salty Papas: The Cleanest Chip
We bring Old Dutch back again to see what they’re serving in “restaurants across the upper midwest.” Will this be the potato chip we eat every time we go out? Or will it be some unknown chip, only served in obscure restaurants? Want more Salty Papas during the week? Join us on Twitter @sugardaddiespod, or on Instagram with Sugardaddiespodcast.

Now I know what candies to get and what to pass up!
Just what my sweet tooth needs!
I love this little podcast, and I say little, cause just like Milk Duds, these episodes are the perfect 'bite' size.
The hosts are funny, and the content is interesting and informational. I LOVE weird candy! I never pass an Asian grocery (or any ethnic grocery) without stopping and searching for unusual candies. What fun! So this podcast is right down my ally. Keep up the great work!
A fantastic podcast concept and execution. Bravo! Wish I'd thought of this. (Where's the Pop Tarts episode?!?)
