This candy was both exactly what I expected and nothing like what I expected, all at the same time. Fortunately for me the parts I didn't expect only improved on this treat while the parts I did expect were what I was hoping for. I guess you could say that this treat exceeded expectations, while still being close to what I wanted.
I was expecting a strawberry flavored treat. I also figured that the strawberry would be a fake strawberry flavour, but that's not a bad thing since I love fake strawberry. The part that surprised me was the texture. I was expecting these to be really hard and dense, I figured I would likely end up with a sore jaw after a few bites. What it ended up being is a fairly soft and slightly sticky gummy like candy. I would describe the texture somewhere between red licorice and a dense gummy.
As an added bonus this candy can be pulled apart. Some people might not care and may enjoy simply eating these as is, but if you like to play with your food like I do, this was an awesome bonus.
