Taste test: We've reviewed a few kinds of ginger candy recently (with awesome names Prince of Peace and Royal King) but this was quite unlike the others, because it was hard candy, rather than being chewy. The bag contained individually wrapped pieces, each round, 3/4 inch in diameter and half an inch thick, with the two circular surfaces bulging a bit in the middle. The color was generally a translucent light yellow, with some random brownish stripes here and there.
When I sucked on my first piece, there was quite a strong hit of sweet ginger, with a nice zing to it. The piece was big enough that it lasted quite a while, with plenty of ginger throughout. Plus, there was nothing to stick to my teeth. We shared these around and got lots of thumbs-ups from ginger lovers. Excellent!

Smell test: Mild ginger smell.
From the package: “Can something taste good and be good for you? Why are they called 'apartments' when they're stuck together? If vegetarians eat vegetables, what do humanitarians eat? Can people be beautiful on the outside, but ugly on the inside? We don't know, we never cut one open. What we do know is that candy can taste good and be good for you.”
