The cool thing about life, is that you never cease getting surprised-at least I don’t. Hell, I didn’t think I liked NFL football until a few years ago, now it frustrates the crap out of me. In a good way. I hated brussels sprouts until my little wifey busted out her recipe for roasting them like crack infused chips in the oven. I didn’t like “Boogie Nights‘ the first time I saw it.
See what I’m saying?
When I received these gummies from Germany recently, I was struck with two important things: they’re marshmallow looking, and there’s goo inside. Two things I generally despise in the candy world. I can’t sayy that writing crushing reviews of candy is that fun, but at least it’s quick work, right?
Just look at these things. Little…boobie nipples. What the hell is going on here?
Blech. Even their color choices are bizarre, muted, and lame. Check out the CSI: Novato cross section shot:
Not really a liquid, is it? More like a gel. Regardless, who cares?
I’ll tell you who cares: a few little people called you and me, my friends. And that guy. Know why? Because these are GOOD. I know, I know, it’s going against everything holy and right, but damn it, these are tasty! First, they don’t have that spongy marshmallow mouthfeel- I’m not even sure these ARE marshmallow, but they have to be some iteration if it, cause they’re sure as hell not gummies. Even though there’s a marshmallow aspect, these things just bust out with flavor in a big way. You wouldn’t even know that there’s a filled center, as it’s almost a solid-it just reveals itself as a super sour, fruity …thing.
So I’m learning new things, even at the ripe old age of 23. 33. Ok, older, but younger than 103. These are an interesting, solid, jam packed (seriously, you get a metric shit ton in the bag) bag of delightful goodness.
