And even more than candy, I love any packaging that has the words "new" or "improved" on it.
Combine those two things and you know I'm going to eat it*.
I picked these up at the incredibly sketchy corner store near my boyfriend's house—he had never been in there before, but it was actually kind of neat! Lots of ethnic hair products, for some reason.
Anyway, I saw candy I had never seen before. So of course I bought some. They only had the Cherry Punch flavour, but apparently they also come in Pink Lemonade, which I definitely would like to try.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the package was the overwhelming chemical smell that wafted out of the package. It smelled like artificial cherries, which is no surprise, with undertones of Hawaiian Punch . I took a big bite and felt like I had been punched in the mouth. All I could taste was Hawaiian Punch. Which is great, if you were a fan, but I was most decidedly not, as a kid or now.
I definitely like the texture though, it reminds me a little bit of Cow Tails. I would love to try the Pink Lemonade flavour. Candyblog has a full review here.
