Nestle FruTips – Chinese Assortment

On Monday, I reviewed the mango, grapefruit, and lychee FruTips that I bought in China. Today, I’ll review their regular flavor assortment. The regular FruTips were the same size and texture as their specialized flavor counterparts, and they also contained lychee flavored jellies (white). You can refer to Monday’s review for my notes on texture…

Nestle FruTips – Mango, Grapefruit, and Lychee

As previously mentioned, I’m way overdue for a review of Nestle FruTips from China. When I was in Shanghai this March, I bought of couple of fresh tubes to cover today and Friday. I’ll start with the Mango, Grapefruit, and Lychee tube. The FruTips were thumbnail-sized flat disks that were covered in gritty sugar sand….

Jelly Belly Draft Beer

I think it’s safe to state that Jelly Belly is tops in their field of creatively flavorful jelly beans. Instead of resting on their laurels, they never stop innovating!

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…

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.

Each Punchie had a fun little face printed on it. They were like…

Buddy Fruits Fruit Bites

After entire days of gorging on candy samples, their fruit pouches of blended fruit (basically apple+other fruits sauce in portable format) were a health preserver in a sea of sugar and salt. In addition to free samples of their blended fruit pouches, which I ate while I at the…

Sunkist Fruit Gems

Jelly Belly recently sent me several free samples of their new products, including a bag of Sunkist Fruit Gems. Wait a second, you may be thinking – what’s new about Sunkist Fruit Gems? Rosa, you took a picture of some back in 2007! Turns out Fruit Gems are new again. Since Jelly Belly bought the Sunkist…

Moritas Sour Gummies

This week I’ll be reviewing some candies that I picked up at a local Hispanic grocery store. First up are Ricolino’s Moritas Sour Gummies, which the bag describes as “pectin gummies with artificial blackberry and strawberry flavors [sic] sugar dots.” At first glance, they looked like standard raspberry/blackberry gummi candies, though these were strawberry rather…
