It’s time for yet another t-shirt review! Today I’ll be reviewing a shirt from LabCandy, a brand that launched last summer. The tee that I received is a sweet design (you see what I did there?) by Greg Abbott called “Candy Maniac.”
The shirt came nicely folded in a sealed orange plastic bag, which I thought was cool. I’m not a fan of clear or translucent mailers, though. Something about the way that you can see what kind of shirt lies inside the packaging makes me nervous about the parcel’s journey through shipment facilities. Nonetheless, this LabCandy tee obviously made it to me just fine! The shirt came packaged with some extra goodies: a sealed tube of blue powder candy and LabCandy pin.

If you are a huge fan of Frank Kozik or simply love this mutant KR mascot, this new t-shirt definitely deserves some space in your closet or dresser!
Let’s start off with the basics. The t-shirt came in a sealed, custom-printed plastic bag, along with washing instructions and a laFraise sticker. As you can see, the shirt inside also has a custom hang tag. You’ll definitely remember that you got this shirt from laFraise. There’s no question about that! Read the rest of this entry »
