Looking at the sealed package of Gummi Sombreros, I had low expectations. I saw some gummies shaped like sombreros and I thought they were going to be typical gummies that are trying to be unique because of their shape, lacking anything beyond a mediocre taste.

I saw the red, yellow, orange, and green, and expected cherry, lemon, orange, and lime, but I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the bag to be greeted with a welcoming whiff of a pepperminty cinnamon aroma. I apologized for highly underestimating these candies.

These chewy gummies not only have a great had chewy consistency but they have an impressive range of flavors. I was fooled by most of the flavors. Yellow was indeed lemon, but orange is a minty sweet clove flavor, green a strong peppermint, black is black licorice, and best of all is the red cinnamon.

Sombrero, literally translated from Spanish to English is “shade maker.” This Mexican hat shades people from the hot sun. Though this candy probably won’t give you much protection from the sun, it will tingle taste buds in your mouth.
