Gummi bears are pretty much irresistible and chocolate is a cherished treat. When I spotted a box of chocolate-covered gummi bears”, I felt excited and had to give them a try!
The box says, “New! The original Muddy Bears chocolate covered gummi bears”. I should have known something was amiss when it said ‘new’ and ‘original’ in the same breath. They are by Taste of Nature, Inc. even though they are quite unnatural…
Sadly, the chocolate is surprisingly thin and not very flavorful. The gummi bear itself isn’t a defined taste, either. Mostly, I was sitting on the couch making all sorts of faces, trying to decide if I liked it or not. They’re not horrible… but they aren’t tasty, either. Perhaps if a better chocolate was used, they could be like a chocolate treat with a fruity center. These just end up tasting odd.
Above is a picture to show what they look like out of the box. I squinted, trying to convince myself they resembled a bear a little tiny bit. I really wanted to like these, but they were only as desirable as their name.
