I don’t know if it’s the whole line of candies, I’m not paid to KNOW things, I just say things. But it’s a lot, that’s for sure.
I picked these up in World Market. They looked classy, expensive, and potentially of a very high quality. If nothing else, I could impress my friends with them.
Let’s go through them one by one shall we?
The are vegan, which is nice. The not so nice thing is the ambiguity of the flavors.
Mango, pineapple, kiwi & passionfruit flavors are in the bag. And while I can define the passionfruit, I can’t really pinpoint the others, They’ve got the jelly thing going, they’re tasty. They’re good. But fizzy? No. Not at all. I think by writing “fizzy” on the bag, they actually meant sour, which also…they’re not. But at least that would make more sense, to boast about a candy being sour when it’s not, as opposed to fizzy.
Again, not fizzy. These were SUPER soft, and again are much more of a jelly than a gummy.
These, my friends, are excellent. I don’t know if they actually taste like Prosecco or not, but they’re delicious. I really loved the crunchy-fish exterior contrasting with the super soft silky jelly inside. I’d for sure buy these again.
Gin fizz gummies? We just took a left turn and I LIKE IT.
My first impression of these went something like “Jesus CHRIST these taste strongly of gin!” Honestly, it was a bit shocking and I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not. After a few I warmed up a bit to them, but the harsh juniper flavor of gin doesn’t really work so well for me in a sweet scenario. Not my favorite.
These, once again a vegan offering, taste pretty similar to other watermelon jellies you’ve had. In fact, just think of them as elevated Sour Patch Watermelons.
If you notice, all of these candies have one of two shapes. Good idea? Boring? Confusing for me, mostly. I could take or leave these watermelons. They’re fine.
Cocktail time again! This time, Rose´
These are a bit different in that they’re BARELY coated with the same powder that’s on the rest of these. Mistake? Too much moisture in the bag? Dunno. They were alright-not as effervescent as the Prosecco ones. Wifey liked them.
Honestly, this is a nice line of candies. Somewhat upscale, made in the UK, they likely would look good on Instagram. Ultimately though…they’re not special. They’re not really that unique, and while they’re generally tasty, you gotta come at me with more than that to make me lay down the cash to get these all the way to the states.
