Giant Chewy Nerds Should Be Called Giant Chewy Turds

So gross. SO gross.

I love Nerds. I’ve always loved Nerds. I was totally psyched upon entering the movie theater to see a new product from the sour geniuses at Wonka, “Giant Chewy Nerds”. Again, I love Nerds, I certainly love chewy, and giant is just more of a good thing, right?
Wrong. SO WRONG.
Let me get right to the point: they’re not sour. Hellllllllo!!! Nerds are sour, that’s the deal, right? But these have this lame candy shell, and then…an overly sweet gooey center. Not at all what I was expecting, and try as I might, I just couldn’t grow to like them.
At the Candy Gurus first official group tasting, I brought the remains of the bag I bought. Out of four people tasting (we had an additional friend there), not ONE of us ate more than one.
That’s bad.
So stay away, folks. I have no idea what Wonka is thinking, but this one’s a loser.

Bottom Line:

Just pretend they never existed, run out and buy a few boxes of good old fashioned Nerds (Sour are, of course, my fave), but any flavor will do. Avoid the chewy giant turds.

    Completely agree! There is something terribly wrong with these things. The texture and consistency is about what I’d image eating dried out cat turds to be like. And then there is something darker, more ominous, and unidentifiable: I think they’re made of people. I could be wrong, but probably not.
