The Cool Kidz taste gummi raspberries and blackberries and runts....

Fruit appears to love being transformed into candy and this week, we tried soft  gummi raspberries and blackberries and runts

The soft berries came in two flavors: raspberry and blackberry which are soft chewy candies, surrounded by small dots. The first bite is different, as the candies have a weird texture but once you reach the center, the flavor is revealed and the candies taste noticeably better.

The raspberries were very sweet, and did not resemble raspberries at all. Emily enjoyed them, but claims she would not buy them at a supermarket while  Brooke believes, these little gummies are unappealing and do not taste very good.  The blackberries on the other hand were a lot less prevalent in the bag and we both agreed that they were not as good.

At first, they taste the same, but, however, after they have disappeared they taste weird and have a gross after taste. Then we ate the Runts, which Emily points out, “The flavoring is not very strong so you need to eat more than one at a time.” to which Brooke added, “you want to just eat it, but because they are hard candies they take a while to finish.”  Runts come in many flavors: banana, cherry, orange, grape, and apple and while they are delicious in their duration, their aftertaste is not as good.

The Cool Kidz share their opinions about Gummi Fruit Salad

We’re Back!

Recently, we have tried  gummi fruit salad, which consisted of sour watermelons, apples and cherries.

These candies were good,however, their was a clear distinction between the best and the worst. The best being sour watermelons, which are classic and are sold everywhere and are delicious.  However, they are not sour, at all. According to one of our mothers named Frannie, “they should be called sweet watermelons!”

 In spite of that, they are very good. In our opinion the next best is sour apples. They are moderately sour. And worst of all, but not horrible, are the sour cherries. These red bite sized pieces are interesting in flavor, but the most sour of all three.

Overall, these candies are definitely addictive, but their titles can be misleading as they are not very sour whatsoever.
