Where’s the best place in your town to buy new candies? Besides a few boutique candy shops, and I hate to say this, the best place I know of is Walgreens. For those that aren’t familiar, Walgreens is a drugstore type pf place that has shelves and shelves of different candy options. Last night I stumbled into one, and 8 dollars later, I had some new stuff to review.
When I opened up the Smoothies, it was another case of me expecting to taste one, potentially spit it out, and then chalk up another crappy new candy. Not only did I LIKE these, but so did 3 of the four folks I was with. No , my wife wasn’t a fan, but she was in the minority, and isn’t really into candy anyhow.
I know. Let’s not deconstruct that issue now, we don’t have time. Moving on…
The flavors of the smoothies are: Blueberry, Banana Caramel, Tropical, Peach, and Strawberry Creme. If you can recall the consistency of original Necco Wafers, they really lend themselves to a “creamy” type of flavor. The discs are soft-ish, and after a few sucks, start breaking down themselves.
I tried the Blueberry first, and damn it people, I liked it a lot. In fact, I liked every flavor in the pack. They’re refreshing, light, and the flavors are pretty darned distinct. I have to recommend these, just so that you can try something different. I haven’t tasted any other candy quite like these, and I sure as hell haven’t seen sick-ass retro pukey packaging like this in a long time.
Bottom Line: These just might surprise you. If you like creamy candies, they’re a must buy. And if anyone finds a tee shirt with these on the front, buy it for me. Large. I need it.
I really like the necco smoothies, better than I ever liked the regular ones.
I don’t disagree. They were really good.
I’m telling you, I was 100% prepared to put one in my mouth, walk to the trash, and spit it out. It didn’t happen-and not only that, it wasn’t just me–everyone liked them. The thing about the original Necco wafers is that the flavors stink. These flavors are actually interesting, yummy, and different. I shit you not.
I enjoy classic Necco wafers. Maybe it’s just that I work in a Catholic Church?
Can this be possible? The last Necco wafer I had was HORRIBLE! It was like a piece of chalk or what I image a communion wafer to be. The ones I had were chocolate – not that I think communion wafers taste like chocolate – oh geez, don’t tell the Pope about this.
Jonny – HOW can they be so good??
