I didn’t like these things very much. Maybe more telling: Boots, Jonny, D and Scott hated them.
I’ll boil it up to key phrases in case this is as much as you want to read:
- Caramel, but tastes nothing like it
- The name doesn’t sound appetizing
- Are they old? They tasted old.
- 2 parts — an outside and cream filling inside; both tasted the same.
- Were they covered in sand?
So I’m a bit torn on these things believe it or not. For one I really like their website. I also couldn’t stop eating them. I ate a few, and then a few more, each time trying to figure out ‘do I like these? are these good?’ I just couldn’t tell. I didn’t think I liked them but I kept going back for more. Maybe they are dusted in the same myth-chemical Doritos supposedly have to put a spell on chip eaters…
(Thank you tiny muffins for the pic)
To go bit deeper — the caramel is not caramel. I mean it kinda looks like caramel, same healthy-poo color, but didn’t taste like it at all. And it’s covered in something like dirt or sand or thick flour or maybe corn starch as olde time candy makers are wont to do. Not for me. Fine to have a dusting of something flavored…but if it’s just for looks or packaging, then not for me.
One thing I liked about them was the candy texture. It was a nice semi-chewy, not teeth-sticky confection.
Anyways – I don’t love this review. Not terribly funny. Not terribly catchy. I don’t love this candy. Not very good tasting. Not terribly dandy.
