Haribo Ginger Lemon Gummi Candy - Review

Haribo Ginger-Lemon Gummis [Review]

I first saw Haribo Ginger-Lemon Gummis at the Sweets and Snacks Expo back in 2012. I got to taste a sample then, but they didn’t have any that I could take with me, so I wasn’t able to review them then. Since then, I’d been keeping an eye out for them in the wild. A…

e. fruitti gummis from Candy Crate

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…

YumEarth Organics Fruit Snacks + Giveaway

Is there a different between gummis and fruit snacks? The former is definitely a candy and is usually viewed as an occasional treat for kids, whereas the latter is often found in school lunch boxes. To me, they’re basically the same, though fruit snacks get a health washing. I think it’s because they can usually…

Trolli Soda Poppers - Candy Review

Trolli Soda Poppers: Fizzy Goodness?

I found these Trolli Soda Poppers while I was trolling (har har) the candy aisles of a local gas station. I’d never heard of them before, but they’ve apparently been around long enough to warrant a “New Look!” The Soda Poppers came in Cherry Cola, Root Beer, Orange Soda, Lemon Lime, and Cola flavors. As…

Sunkist Lemon Gummies

I bought these Sunkist Lemon Gummies at the dollar store. There were also Sunkist strawberry gummies there, but I just bought the lemon since I like citrus flavors. The yellow gummies were shaped like little lemon slices. They were firm with a bouncy bite that was too solid for me to tear cleanly through the gummi…

Black Forest Juicy Oozers Gummy Cracked Eggs

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. I’m back now with some drug store buys from my pre-road trip snack shopping. First up, Black Forest‘s Juicy Oozers Gummy Cracked Eggs. These were a seasonal Easter…

Puré Gummies – Grape, Lemon, and Peach

There Puré gummies were another gift that my friends Emma and Jason brought back from Japan. They brought back three flavors: grape, lemon, and “fresh peach”. Each stand-up bag of gummies was resealable, which was a touch that I appreciated. The gummies inside were heart-shaped, about an inch across, and covered in tart and lightly…

Bissinger's Grapefruit Gummy Pandas

Bissinger’s Grapefruit Gummy Pandas

I’ve said many times on this blog that there aren’t enough grapefruit candies out in the world. There are, at least, Bissinger’s Gummy Pandas that come in pink grapefruit (with grapeseed), which I bought at Whole Foods. The bag makes all kinds of health claims: “made with organic sweeteners”, “natural sources of antioxidants” (from the…

Sour Jacks – Watermelon

Last week, I reviewed Sour Jacks’ original candies. Today, I’ve got a review of their watermelon gummis. The Watermelon Jacks had a completely different texture from the Sour Jacks. While the latter were stiff, the Watermelon Jacks had a pleasantly sproingy chew that bounced against my teeth. They tasted of classic candy watermelon flavor: sweet…
