We may be sour, but we know our sweets.

Gelee Blend: Double Flavor Jelly Candies

Author

I love fruit jellies, and everyone knows it.  Nothing new to report there.  It seems like every one I sample gets addedto my list of favorite candies.  That is…until this one.

Made in Greece, these things are a bit unique as they each have two distinct flavors per piece.  Also, they’re pretty damn gorgeous looking.

Even better when unwrapped:

So “what’s your beef”? You might be asking.  Or, conversely, you might be saying “Where’s the beef?”, in which case I’d kindly point you back to 1985 and carry on.
My issue is with the overall flavor.  They all have a cream-like thing happening, which I just don’t dig.  The flavors, as I can best surmise are:

Cherry/Vanilla

Melon/Tangerine

Lime/Vanilla

Banana/Coconut

 

What’s missing here is a level of extreme fruitiness.  Instead, we get a bit of a muted, creamy experience, and…I just didn’t like them.  In the looks department, they get a 9.  Taste though? 4.

 

But they’re Kosher, so if that’s of any import to you, have at ’em!
