Taste test: These snacks were double-wrapped and had rectangular-ish shapes, with a dark amber-like color and some white powdery stuff covering parts of the surfaces.
I bit in to find a very chewy, toffee-like feel, with a taste was sweet and fairly mild at first, but with continued chewing, the intensity of the ginger grew to an impressively intense level. The other thing that continued chewing brought was the candy getting quite stuck to the teeth. The pieces were fairly large, so it took a while to eat just one, particularly when it got lodged into the molars. Very good, but I'm not certain that my dentist would approve!
