Cactus Candy

Cactus Candy Company

Okay, before I do this review I have to ask one question. When you first saw this candy did you think I was eating a candy with little needles? If you thought that these might be little bits of cactus, you’re not the only one. I picked up these treats on a little adventure out in the desert in Arizona, and thought "Hey Candy Critic if you’re a real man you'll eat a cactus candy no matter how spinney". As it turns out this isn’t what you get in a box of Cactus Candy.

What I did get is a little yummy, gummy jelly with a really sweet and slightly fruity flavour. What I say that these are sweet, I mean they’re really sweet. If you’re not used to super-sweet treats, you might only be able to manage one or even half of one of the treats in a sitting. Having said that these are still worth a try. The best feature of these Cactus Candies is the subtle fruity flavour. I couldn’t place what kind of fruit it was at first but then it came to me, it must be the "delicious prickly pear cactus". As you know I'm a big fan of originality and as far as flavour goes, this is great.

So be a little bit brave and eat a cactus, or at the very least appear to be brave and eat a Cactus Candy.
