I recently received a free Kooky Kid Crazy Candy Gift Box from the folks at Candy Crate. They repackage candy into themed boxes (or crates?) or care packages. The box I got had lots of sugary treats, including some e. frutti gummies.
The Gummi Pizza contained 5 “slices”. At first glance, the blobs of toppings looked weird – unnaturally bright, and what pizza toppings are purple anyway?
When I looked more closely, however, it turned out that the green blobs were little peppers, purple was olives, yellow was a teeny mushroom, and white was garlic, maybe? Surprising level of detail here!
The gummis had a foamy bottom with a slightly soft foamy chew, but the rest of the gummi had a fairly stiff chew. The flavor was mildly sweet and fruity, with citrusy floral notes.
The Sea Critters gummis were SweeTart colored sea turtles, though it looks like they also come in other creature shapes and colors. They were soft and uber squishy with the same foamy texture of the pizza bottoms.
Their flavor made me think of SweeTarts, though I’m not sure if it was just the suggestive power of the coloring. They were sweet and slightly tart, and I swear the gummi had fizzy notes, though that could have been just how the foamy gummi melted in my mouth.
These gummis were pretty fun and tasty. I think kids would get a kick out of the fun shapes, and the flavors, while safe and unsurprising, are decent enough. An O.
