Dandy’s Cola Sparkling Candy

The allure of cola hard candy is strong. But fizzy sparkling cola hard candy? It's enough to give this man pause.

Cola and sparkling are candy hot buttons for me.  I hear either, and I generally want it.  But both?  Makes me think back to the amazing Super Cola hard candy we tried a few months back from Nobel.  Could these come close?  I DON’T KNOW, WE”LL HAVE TO TRY THEM FIRST.

Hmm.  Bag looks…like it could go either way.  I’m kinda digging the color scheme, but on the other hand, it also kinda looks like a dollar store brand offering.  Not sure, but definitely appreciate the cross sectional diagram at the bottom, science-style, showing the “fizzy filling”.  The primary colored stars scare me, though.  They remind me of clowns.

The cola taste is ok, very sweet.  The filling is semi-fizzy, and I know this because the first one I popped into my mouth immediately split open, right in half, pouring the fizz on to my tongue.  Now the powder’s gone, and I have two sweet cola halves.  Joy.

For comparison’s sake, I should point out that the fizz/sour factor on these pales in comparison to that of Zotz, the candy these are most similar too.  Literally, they’re like a copy of a copy of a copy-each time, losing a little bit of flavor and authenticity.  Like that movie “Multiplicity” with Michael Keaton.  Learn from it.

 

These are alright, but definitely nothing special, as nothing about them is “great”.  I wont recommend you buy them, but you also might enjoy them just fine if you do.  Middle of the road, neither great nor horrible, they’re the candy version of Mumford & Sons.  Or 7-Up.  Or “The Purge”. Use this information wisely.
