We found these at our local Walgreens at the checkout while picking up a few other items. There was a giant “NEW” on the packaging, so we had to try them. We don’t normally buy gummy candy, however, we are partial to sour gummy candy and these looked like something completely different.
Turns out, these are a pretty close twin to Sour Chewy Nerds, which we’ve reviewed before; they have a crunchy candy-coated flavoring with a chewy inside and sour flavor throughout. These are a bit different, the candy coating is thick and I mean really thick. We tried to squeeze these between our fingers and it was almost impossible. Nothing makes you feel weak like being defeated by a candy-coated shell that is too strong for you, but the coating is honestly that thick. I think that’s why these are called CRUNCHY, because they do give off a very satisfying crunch when you chomp on them. The outside coating isn’t flavored on the outside, so trying to melt these in your mouth yields no real flavor, you have to crunch these with your teeth, no savoring here, just dive right in.
The combinations are great, we all had our favorites but Trolli picked some amazing combos. There is definitely a nice sour flavor, not ‘mouth-puckering insane kids candy’ sour, but a nice, ‘I’m an adult and can really enjoy these’ sour flavor. The gummy interior isn’t dense or tough, it has a fantastic chew to it. We can’t stress enough how much we loved the flavors, they really are an amazing pairing, like fine wine and a fancy main dish, they are really that good.
Found at our local Walgreens two bags for $5.00 USD. Everyone should try these, we fell in love with them.
