Taste test: These fairly large gummies were based on characters in the popular Madagascar animated movies. The end of the box showed four different shapes — lion, penguin with arms at its side, penguin with arms crossed and hippo. The front of the box said the the box included four flavors: strawberry, orange, mixed berries and watermelon. The colors of the words happened to match the colors of the four characters shown, so we figured that the gummies would match those flavors.
When we opened the box and looked inside the clear bag, we were surprised to find that each particular gummy shape actually came in multiple colors/flavors. The even bigger surprise was that one of the pieces didn't seem to match any of the shapes shown — best we could tell, it was one of the Mario Bros.
As for the actual snacks, the pieces were fairly large, nicely detailed and had a cool translucent glow. The red, strawberry-flavored pieces had a very nice sweet strawberry flavor. The orange ones tasted quite good too, a nice sweet but not overly sugary orange flavor. The green ones and the blue ones didn't look much different, as I tried one expecting green watermelon, but it really tasted more like Mixed Berries. The other green one (the Mario Bros. guy) tasted different but still didn't seem all that much like watermelon. The pieces were a bit chewier than we might have liked, but the tastes were very good. We'll be keeping out eyes open for more random Mario Bros. in unexpected places as we continue our quest to eat every snack in the world!
