Taste test: For a product that looked so simple on the outside, this long, thin Mamba package was a fairly elaborate thing to get into. It started with the main outside wrapper, which turned out to hold four separate packs, each enclosing multiple pieces of one particular flavor. Opening those packs revealed six square-shaped pieces, which were also individually wrapped. So all in all, that's three layers of wrapper to peel away before being about to enjoy one of these fruit snacks.
When we pulled the inner six-packs out of the main package, the flavors weren't quite as advertised. We expected one each of Strawberry, Raspberry, Orange and Lemon, but what we get was actually two packs of Strawberry and no Orange.
For all of that packaging complexity, it turned to be worth the effort, as the Mamba fruit candy was quite good. They were a bit more solid than Starburst Fruit Chews, and still noticeably softer than Now & Later. The fruit taste was excellent in all cases. (We're withholding judgment on the Orange flavor.) We shared these with a bunch of snackers enjoying some breakfast at a coffeehouse, and they quickly snapped them up and had high praise for the taste.
