So this treat gets one of those ratings that few treats get. It's the coveted "it looks great, but why" award. What kind of market is there for people that want to eat tennis balls? Are tennis fans that fanatical that they have an interest in eating tennis equipment? I'm not putting them down at all, in fact I think it's pretty amazing, it's just something I don't understand.

So just to add another strange element to this already bizarre treat we have the fact that they're filled with some kind of sour goo that pretty much gives it the lemon lime flavour promised on the package. I really don't understand why someone would make this treat, but I'm glad I got to try it because it was an experience. Best of all the fuzz on the outside isn't actually fuzzy it's just kind of a rough candy coating.

I'm really impressed at how cool these look, and if you made them actual size they would look like real tennis balls. However if you made them to the correct size then they'd be really hard to eat.

They taste great; they're a little strange, not bad at all.
