Mighty Morphing Power Starbursts

New candy taste sensation!

Starbursts has come out with “morphing” candies – cherry morphs into cherry-lime and orange morphs into orange-strawberry. Worth a try, yes?

Unwrap a candy… it looks like a regular Starburst except for tiny little flavor-changing beads studded through. Chew enough and eventually you find one of the flavor bbs and bite down on it. It will pop and out comes a teensy bit of flavor.

I like the idea, but in half of the pack there were nowhere near enough bbs. Also, throw another flavor in there. 2 flavors in a whole pack is just not sufficient. How about lemon to lemon-cherry?

In a nutshell: these are interesting, but I prefer California fruits. And even better than California fruits are GummiBursts. Sorry, Starburst! I won’t be buying these again.

Hey, remember those peach-flavored sucking candies that had the . . . um . . . stuff inside? What were those called? I had a hankering for one the other day.

Hmm. Puckers? Those were so good. You sucked them and sucked them and a delicious gooey filling came out. It was like a mini candy ejaculation. They had them in raspberry too, but peach was much better.

Hey, Clipboard! This doesn't look like the right packaging, but the candies are the right shape. What do you think?

Alexis Clipboard said...! That looks delish! Too bad it isn't actually available to buy. Ill have to look the next time I go to a candy specialty store.

Don't you love the fact that we live in a world where "candy specialty store" is a legitimate thing? Ha!

Aye, 'tis a wonderful world in which we live! :^)

You know, first I tried looking up those candies on a couple of candy blogs, but they were nowhere to be found.

I loved that those candies were sooo smooth.
