Hi readers! Sorry I was AWOL on reviews last week – I was road-tripping and out of the town the previous weekend and fell behind on life.
These were a seasonal Easter product. Mine came in a 1.5 oz single-serving bag. The Easter branding was actually fairly subtle, as the dominant color scheme was magenta rather than pastel.
The egg shaped gummies were about the size of my thumbnail. They were molded with little cracks on the surface, and each was filled with a bright yellow oozy liquid.
While I get that the ooze was supposed to approximate egg yolks, it seemed a little too close to the real thing. Plus its bright coloring looked extra yolky against the muted pastels of the gummi shells.
The gummies had a firm chew with a clean bite and zero stickiness. All had a sweet brightness to their flavors, which was elevated by the bright, sweet tartness of the yellow ooze.
White tasted like a mix of yogurt and pineapple. Green started off yogurty, then became tarter.
Pink tasted of muted berry notes, which were piqued by that tart oozy center, and purple just tasted generically fruity and sweet to me.
These were simple treats, but I thought they were done quite well. Their flavors were strong and not too sweet, and the tart goo kept things interesting. An OM.
