Cuz if so – BRAVO. Bra-fuckin-O.
“Skwinkles Salsaghetti – Hot watermelon flavored candy strips with Tamarin flavored sauce”
There’s just no goddamn way this is candy. It looks like crap. It tastes like shit. It comes with a packet of spicy runny jelly sauce and the only redeeming factor is that they give you almost none to eat.
Jonny and I went to Mexico last year with the fams and we had an aucey spumante time. I dig that country. Love the food. I meld with the culture. I worship the sun and the beach. So we were both a little taken aback at the dearth of good Mexican candy. Now I have a co-worker friend named Mel who insists there is good Mexican candy and god love her – bring it on. Prove it. Because I’m easy like a 10-cent whore when it comes to sweets: I’ll eat anything. These Skwinkles I assume are Mexican since there’s Spanish all over the package and we ain’t near Barcelona.
They are exactly like the gummis we got in Mexico — no real chew, and instead all melty and soft. These also have some kind of pepper looking bits all over the gummi candy and then I guess you pour the sauce on the candy and eat it? Like it’s ketchup? On your watermelon spicy spaghetti?
Jesus these suck. I refuse to eat even one more little bite. I can barely review these. The sauce tastes like sickly sacharrine SALSA. Note to Mexico: don’t fucking put salsa on everything. Who told you that salsa is a condiment like salt or sugar? WHO TOLD YOU THAT? God. It’s pissing me off a little right now. And what’s even weirder is that I got these at Walgreen’s (local drugstore) AND the box/case of them was almost empty so I was half happy that I got a package since it seemed obvious they were popular. But hell NO – these aren’t possibly popular for anything besides angering people who like things that taste good.
These are the worst candy I’ve ever had. It’s not even close. I pushed them on my wife and she said – and I quote – “Are you fucking kidding me?” And I’m the one with the potty mouth in the family.
These aren’t just spitters – they’re pukers.
