Yes, they’ve finally done it! And man is it strong. Many years back when Candy Critic was at it’s infancy, I found a treat called "Oh Cool", this treat was a fruity gummy that let out a burst of cool menthol. I can’t say that I really enjoyed the feeling of a cool gummy that much, however it was so different that it appealed to me. Needless to say I haven’t been able to find them again since.

Now the folks that brought you sour patch kids have discovered this fun idea and brought it back to my pallet. Best of all the menthol in these is pretty powerful. With just one sour patch kid I had an awesome cool feeling all over my mouth. It’s like eating a mint treat without the mint flavour. It’s really strange but also really neat.

The fruit flavour itself is pretty normal to sour patch kids and the cool feeling instantly killed off the sour. But it was kind of neat to have sour, sweet and cool all in one mouthful.

Best to say that many people might not understand the thrill of eating these, but for any candy aficionados out there it’s well worth trying.
