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.
