not really sure what the folks at Original Gourmet meant when
they called this a "Mystery Flavour". Does it mean
that this lollipop is a specific flavour, but they're not going
to tell us, so we have to guess? Or is this a random collection
of flavours that they've combined, and they had no particular
flavour in mind? If they had a flavour in mind, I feel like
they're issuing me a challenge, and this makes me feel pressured,
as if they're saying that if I don't guess the flavour I'm a
bad Candy Critic. If they don't have a flavour in mind, than
I start to think that the folks at Original Gourmet are kind
of lazy, and they're just making random flavour and not committing
to giving the flavour a name. It's really a lose/lose situation.
it comes to the flavour of this particular mystery lollipop,
it's really a big win. If I had to describe the flavour of this
lollipop, I'd call it tutti-fruity bubble gum. It started as
just a plain bubble gum flavour, but slowly a fruity flavour
started to come into play. The bubble gum flavour never leaves;
the tutti-fruity flavour just adds itself into the mix. It was
a pleasure to eat, and my only complaint is that I wouldn't
be able to ask for this flavour again, since it's one of many
mystery flavours that they make.
Texture wise this
lollipop was fine, it had a bit of a concave bottom (something
I've experienced before with Original Gourmet lollipops) that
meant that there was a bit of a moisture collection problem.
This lead to a sticky stick and fingers about halfway through
Of all of the Original
Gourmet lollipops I've eaten yet, this one is truly my favourite.
I think the fact that I didn't know what flavour it was helped
them very much. Instead of comparing it to something, I found
that my imagination filled in the holes, and I had a lot more
fun eating it.
