We’ve been writing content material for this web site for thus lengthy, typically I overlook that I’ve already reviewed one thing. I write up a (very considerate and dare I say witty) assessment, after which…simply cry, mainly. It virtually occurred once more at present with these.
Seems we didn’t assessment this actual number of Now & Later: we checked out the Shell Shocked Sours, which I favored fairly a bit. So we’re within the clear.
The concept right here is fairly nice: A small Now & Later chewy taffy ensconced in a sweet shell. Why wouldn’t that be nice? I imply, I already said my love for it within the bitter model. However these? These…have issues. Massive issues.
First up, they appear to be shit. Merely on a coloration alternative stage….what the hell? it’s simply not appetizing to me. Additionally, see the chunk out of the yellow on within the higher proper? It took me some time to get all of the damaged items out for this photo-they have been in every single place. However all of that is secondary information, and doesn’t actually matter a lot with regards to my opinion of the sweet.
The issue begins with the scent. Because it does with so many issues. However for these….there’s simply an odd, clearly chemical scent within the bag, that doesn’t linger too lengthy, however it’s there. It’s rank.
Worse although, that chemical overtone is current within the style of all 5 of those muted flavors. The grape is chemical grape, the cherry is chemical cherry, and many others. On high of this, the flavors are working at full half mast. They barely come into focus, in fact-they don’t, as a result of they’re preventing with the chemical overlords.
The consistency then again, is kind of good. There’s not fairly as a lot separation of Church & State between the shell and the middle, however the total impact is sweet and chewy. However I’m not overstating issues once I say that the flavour is so dangerous that it negates all the pieces good in regards to the consistency. three out of three of us hated these. And whereas it’s doable that I bought a extremely previous bag or an off batch, I doubt it. And if that’s true, then the standard management is crap, so it actually doesn’t matter.
These stink. Don’t purchase them. The truth is, I refuse to offer you a hyperlink (simply kidding, go for it, I gained’t inform anybody). However I’ll shake my head again & forth slowly, pointing at you.
