Product Placement – Angry Birds Fruit Gummies

 

Ah Angry Birds, I remember back in 2009 where on a c|net podcast called the original Angry Birds game was the funniest game for a 99c. Well I said: “Oh yeah? I got a dollar, let’s do this!” Many weeks later of playing, getting three stars and finding all the golden eggs; I found that Angry Birds was a keeper. Soon after the world at large caught the Angry Birds fever and been that way ever since. These feathered projectiles war with rancid suidaes has spawned many different products from toys and books to movie tie-ins and even candy. Angry Birds Fruit Gummies to be exact; which is what I’m going to review today, because after the feast of Hot Pockets I could use a little desert.

The Look:  The box is green because it is the one with the Angry Birds’ arch rivals on it: the Green Pigs. The box also has the familiar Angry Birds words (complete with font) on it, along with all the fruit favors inside. Of course they have the standard snacky boiler plate information: Fat Free, made with real fruit juice, follow us on twitter, that sort of thing. Inside the box the bag (where the candy is actually in) is white with the Angry Birds words on it – neat. Now the actual candies do sorta look like the characters they’re portraying, but do they tasty?

 

 

The Taste: Not bad. Chewy, but not that sticky. The favors: cherry, lemon, raspberry, grape, and strawberry all taste as they should. Apple – not so much. I wouldn’t call it filling but hey its gel candies.

 

The After Effect: After putting away about 7 to 14 of these bad boys I am starting to feel a little sugar rush. There is also some after taste on the tongue but other than that, no change.

 

 

The Verdict

The Angry Birds Fruit Gummies are tasty and good, but such candies are – no matter who’s face is on it. What I mean is that Fruit Gummies are usually the same and the only difference between brands is what they look like; whether it’s from simple basic shapes to familiar characters. As such, there’s nothing that sets these gummies apart from the rest. I mean them shaped as the furious feathered ones are neat, but my belly doesn’t care about that. So that’s that, if you see them in a store and are hungry give them a try – just don’t go out your way for them.
