Chewy Extinguisher Sour Fruit Candy

These Chewy Extinguisher Sour Fruit Candies are a fun idea and I like candies that are meant to be sorted or consumed as a process/project. They don't taste very good, however, which rather defeats the point. I hate artificial watermelon flavor inherently so cannot judge those tangy candies objectively. The sour strawberries were my favorite- a tart and sweet combination. It's difficult to differentiate the red watermelons from the strawberries so that presented a few unpleasant flavor surprises. Super sour green apple was a little too intense for my taste, and green apple just isn't meant to be a eye-wateringly sour flavor- why not lemon or another naturally sour fruit? The mixed berry extinguishers were soothing and dyed my tongue blue, which is always fun. Overall, these Extinguishers are a solid concept but didn't quite get the flavors right. They should come out with a second run with different fruits and it might be more successful.

Score: 3

  1. I really like your arrangement of those dreadful things. You might have a future in the art world, you never know. But, I looked at this review first thing in the morning, and my mouth is still turned inside out. Maybe they could make a sour licorice, and your tongue would be the same color as your dog's. That would be fun!
