Taste test: These gummies immediately stood out for their incredibly clever name, which was very obviously derived from Swedish Fish, and yet was different enough that the legal department at Trader Joe's probably won't be getting a cease-and-desist letter anytime soon. Unlike Swedish Fish, which are all shaped like fish (and usually are all one color), this bag delivered four very different shapes, each with its own color.
The shapes were very nicely formed. The red ones were shaped like lobsters, with sort of an apple-like taste; orange, rock fish, with a definite orange or tangerine-like flavor; yellow, seahorses, not quite sure what it tasted liked, but it seemed more like pineapple than lemon; and green, dolphins, with an odd taste that seemed kind of lime-like at times. They all had a nice moist feel, with a different flavor for each one. Very nicely done and enjoyable to eat.

Smell test: Kind of fruit juice-like, but different from your typical fruit gummies.
From the package: “Inside this nautically bedecked pouch you'll find ocean inspired shapes (lobsters, dolphins, seahorses, and rock fish) in naturally derived derived colors and bright, fruity flavors, all adding up to an aquatic assortment yummy gummy candies you can take with you to the beach or the aquarium. And places without water, too.”
