Haribo Orangina Pik - Review

Haribo – Orangina Pik [Review]

Today and Friday, I’ll review some Haribo gummies that I bought while in Switzerland. First up is Orangina P!k. I know Orangina is a fizzy orange drink that’s available in Europe. No idea what the P!k means (and why it’s not a Pik). Haribo, of course, is a candy brand that is found all over…

Sour Smog Balls

I got this bag of Sour Smog Balls in my free MunchPak box of assorted snacks. The bag promised “crunchy candy with a sour chewy center” in six different flavors. Each Sour Smog Ball was a marbled sphere with a bracingly sour hard, crunchy sugar shell around a chewy center. It took a little jaw strength…

Sour Skittles

Sour Skittles [Review]

Haribo Ginger Lemon Gummi Candy - Review

Sour Punch Punchies [Review]

These Sour Punch Punchies were being heartily promoted at Sweets and Snacks, and I snagged a free sample to review for y’all. The wrapper called them “soft, chewy, and sour candy”, and they came in lemon, strawberry, tangerine, blue raspberry, and green apple. Each Punchie had a fun little face printed on it. They were like…

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…

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…
