Tutti Frutti Hit

Two more Dollar General Store candy reviews today…the first one is Tutti Frutti Hit. These are essentially Tic Tac knockoffs. The Tutti Frutti pack contains many different colors, each is a different flavor. The flavors are: purple is grape, yellow is lemon, orange is orange, green is green apple, and red is strawberry.

Again, I wasn’t expecting much from these but, just as the Rocklets were good, so are these. I haven’t had a Tic Tac in years, but these have the same texture that I remember in a Tic Tac. The yellow is by far my favorite…reminds me of a Lemonhead. This package was only 0.5 oz compared to a Tic Tac’s 0.63 oz, but Hit only cost me a cool quarter.

I started to ask what kind of name is “Hit” but I guess we could ask the same question about “Tic Tac”.

Candy Sticks

The boxes of Hulk and Flintstones Candy Sticks were only $0.10 each at the Dollar General Store so I couldn’t resist. It turns out these “candy sticks” are what I remember from childhood as being candy cigarettes. Yes, these are shorter and there is no red coloring on the tip, but these are candy cigarettes. They taste like them too – sort of chalky and not very tasty.

The other candy sticks were Spider-Man and Wolverine from X-Men. I have to believe that the Fred got put into the wrong box – he’s definitely no superhero (though he powers and brakes his car with his feet – that’s super if you ask me). And who does Fred Flintstone appeal to? Kids nowadays don’t even know who he is – I can’t remember the last time I saw The Flintsones on TV. So do they make the Fred Flintsones Candy Sticks for guys like me on a retro kick?

Aha – I just found these online and indeed The Flintstones come in a different box and there are other cartoons too. Here are Superhero candy sticks, The Flintstones, Popeye, and Tom and Jerry.

Candy sticks get a thumbs up from me for novelty, nostalgia, and price.

    I think the candies are called HIT because there’s a HIT of flavor in each piece

    I thought candy cigarettes were tasty when i was a kid. They were flavored with mint. (I love mint-flavored anything!) How cool is that? A “cigarette” that makes breath fresh! Great pre-date candy!

    RESPONSE: The candy cigarettes I had when I was a kid weren’t minty – at least I don’t think they were. These weren’t minty either.

    I seem to recall candy cigarettes had a slight wintergreen flavor to them.

    I agree, HITs are pretty good for dollar store candy. I don’t like the green apple ones but the rest are actually decent. :)
