Maynards Juicy Squirts – Berry

April 27th, 2011 by Rosa

These Maynards Juicy Squirts are right up there with Crunky Nude Balls in the category of unfortunately/awesomely named candy. I found them in Canada and bought them because they looked fun, and because they’d let me use the words “juicy squirt” a lot.

They come in four flavors: wild cherry-berry, strawberry-kiwi, peach-raspberry, and grape-berry. In all of the names, the first fruit is the outer gummi, while the second fruit is the inner juicy squirt.

Wild cherry-berry and grape-berry both had the same pink berry filling. Wild cherry tasted generically red with darker notes of cherry, while grape had a dark, just shy of popsicley-grape flavor. I thought the pink juicy squirt goo tasted more like apple than berry.

Peach-raspberry was uneventful, an orange gummi with a red juicy squirt. I found it mildly floral and fruity.

Strawberry-kiwi was my hands-down favorite. The strawberry gummi had a mild generic red candy flavor. The faintly green colored lime juicy squirt was the real standout here. It had a zesty limey zing that was surprisingly flavorful for a generic gummi.

An OM for the strawberry-kiwi, and an O for the rest. Also juicy squirt, juicy squirt, juicy squirt.

    Weird that these have creamy-looking filling! The strawberry kiwi sounds yummy.

    I tried some of these, too, but I didn’t like writing “juicy squirts” on my blog because it just sounds so dirty.
