Strawberry Burst

I picked these up a few days ago at a Hispanic dollar store in a shopping center I had never been to before. Based on the package, they looked almost like a miniature strawberry 3 musketeers bar. There were several flavors available, Strawberry, Peanut Butter, Malted Milk, All Coco (coconut) & Toffee. I was unsure about buying these, because I had never even heard of the company Bel before, but since they were only a dollar, I bit the bullet and bought the strawberry.

Big mistake. While the package may make them look like delicious strawberry-filled candy, these were more along the lines of chocolate covered Laffy Taffy. Stale Laffy Taffy at that. I had even poked at the bars while in the store to try to gauge their make-up, but I guessed wrong, and only set myself up for disappointment. Slightly soft, but way to hard to chew or enjoy, these candies were definitely not something I enjoy. I didn’t purchase any of the other versions, but if they’re anything like these I won’t be picking them up anytime soon, or ever.

Reading the back of the package, I’m not really certain where these are from, I believe they were made in Brazil, but they say they were imported through Australia. And they have Spanish and some type of middle eastern writing on them. I bought them in New Jersey. I certainly won’t be buying these again, but if they seem to be up your alley, you can apparently get them in almost any country, based solely on the packaging.

    That’s such a shame! The wrapper does make them look like they have a delicious soft center! I would have fallen to the same fate for a deal like that. I’m sorry you had to experience the disappointment! :(
