Candy Prehistoric Egg with Gummi Dinosaur Center by Jelly Belly

Gummi Dinosaur in Chocolate EggI can’t believe this is real. The Candy Favorites site is a great visual meal but nowhere near as good as actually having the candy in hand, or rather in mouth. I was excited to see this – a chocolate egg (perfect Easter theme, right?) with a gummi dinosaur center. I already knew Jelly Belly to be a leader in creativity in flavoring but didn’t know they made things like this, which combine two great candies into one package, yet keep them separate enough to be enjoyed independently of each other. I think it’s brilliant.

Are these making their way into Easter baskets at your place? Not at mine, simply because I graduated from a basket to a shopping bag, but these will definitely cross my pallet come easter morning!

Enjoy Gummy Peach Rings in moderation…

As soon as you open the bag, a burst of the peachy sweetness aroma floats up your nose preparing your senses for the eating of peach ring.

Manufactured by Farley & Sathers, under the brand name Trolli,  these ring shaped gummies are fun to put on your fingers to admire your beautiful orange and yellow jewelry before ripping them off with your teeth. If you suck on the peach ring instead of chewing it up the sandpapery sugar melts away so that you can feel the smooth gummy squirm around your mouth.

As good as this candy is, I advise moderation. Though moderation is key with most candies, this one I can tell you from personal experience is one in which you should surely limit your intake.

Eating too many peach rings can make your stomach gurgle and your head pound. It gives you a good excuse to share this one with all of the watering mouths watching you chew up the peachy smelling, sugary, slightly sour gummy.
