STARBURST – SWEET HEAT

12 Oct

UntitledUhhhh…. I wasn’t excited to try these.  With flavors like:

Fiery Watermelon, Strawberry Mango, Flamin’ Orange, and Pipin’ Pineapple.   All of which have a bit of a kick…but I didn’t detect so much actual “heat”.   If anything it had just some basic quirky peppery feeling.

Nothing I couldn’t live without.   Can’t see myself buying these again when the Original and Tropical flavors are all so much better.  BUT…they got me to buy it..and talk about their brand..so mission accomplished.

NOW AND LATER – SHELL SHOCKED

10 Oct

UntitledWelcome back to the Candy Counter!!  Today we are looking at SHELL SHOCKED…by Now and Later.

Truth be told, I haven’t had a “Now and Later” in years. I don’t ever see them at local stores….not that I can remember anyway.

So when I saw these, it was a name I was familiar with..and I figured it was a new take on an old favorite.   Which it is…it’s the same chews you remember with a candy coating…so there was that weird moment of …oh cool…candy coating…lemme crunch through this…and…….these taste just like the same Now and Laters I remember.    Kinda bland to me and the fun of the candy is lost once that shell cracks.

You ever had these?  Tell me about it in the comments below!

JUICY FRUIT SOUR WATERMELON

6 Sep

UntitledMe, months ago:

ME:  Has Juicy Fruit Sour Watermelon just become my new favorite gum??

ME2:  Hells YAH!!!!!

Flash-forward to this morning:

ME:  Why can’t I find this gum anywhere anymore ?

ME2:  I don’t know but we better find it soon or I’m gonna have a hissy.

ME:  And we certainly don’t want that!

–Bottom Line –  if you find this – – grab it – it’s so sour watermelon-y yum yum good!

STARBURST – SUMMER SPLASH

22 Feb

UntitledStrawberry Watermelon.

Lemon-Lime.

Cherry Cooler.

Grape Slushie.

Man, oh man, do I love these new Starburst flavors.  I always think they can’t think of better …or newer flavors..and boom…here they go.

Especially that Strawberry Watermelon…..and That Grape Slushie.  Grape Slushie might be the best Starburst I have had in a lonnnnng time.  It’s just has the perfect grape soda /slush bite to it.  It’s all grape-y….and I love it.   For sure.. pick up a few of these if you see them.

MALTESERS

15 Feb

UntitledFinally!!!

I haven’t had these since I was a kid.   Man…oh man…do these things kick ass!!!

Yes, they have been in the import aisle in the store for some time but they always tasted OLD.

Ever had WHOPPERS?  Okay…well these kick that whopper ass.

MALTESERS (pronounced MALL- TEASERS) take what is good about Whoppers and makes it way better…the chocolate is lighter,creamy, and has a depth of flavor to it.  The inside malted part is LIGHT…airy…crispy rather than crunchy and sometimes chalky.

Love. Love.  Love.  Love that these are finally available nationwide.    Fantastic news!!!

WOO!!!!

STARBURST GUMMIE SOURS

19 Jan

UntitledI understood going in. These were gummies. These were Starburst gummies. But these square pillows just seem….meh. The basic flavors (watermelon,strawberry,cherry,and blue raspberry) are good and there is a sufficient amount of “sour”….sorta….but these pillows aren’t satisfying to me. They make me wish I had just got the regular sour Starbursts. I also did NOT like that the bag was pretty sizeable…ut the amount of actual candy you get inside is about a THIRD of the bags actual size. So that felt like a gyp. Your mileage may vary.
