Mars Starburst Sour Chews

I've talked about my utter and complete love of Starburst fruit chews in the past. Then Starburst experimented with a Sweet & Sour variety pack that had its moments of deliciousness but was mainly a letdown. It's hard to compete with the perfection of the original. Starburst has expanded on the Sour varieties of the Sweet & Sour pack, wisely vanquishing the watermelon flavor, clearly the most disgusting. Instead, this pack contains sour apple, strawberry, blue raspberry, and tangerine. The strawberry and tangerine are fantastic. I'm biased against all green apple candy so cannot address its success as a new flavor. The blue raspberry is fun but forgettable--a great color though. I like the idea of a blue Starburst-- perhaps blueberry? I'm excited that Starburst is branching out but the market feels flooded with sour candies and it's a little much to eat the whole pack all at once. I like my candy sweet, so proceeded to eat a bag of Twizzler's to counteract all that sour. Thanks for finding these, Dan!
