As part of my job I have to travel to Florida several times a year. For someone who hates sun, sand, and heat, it isn’t exactly a dream come true. One of the few things that make the trips bearable are my mandatory excursions to Fresh Market and their gourmet candy section. On my last trip, I picked up a bag of Albanese Gummi Bunnies, intending to review them when I got back home to New York. They didn’t make it home; in fact, they didn’t even make it to the airport. They were that good.
The mixed bag came with orange, blue, yellow, green, and pink. While I would love to tell you what the individual flavors are, I honestly have no earthly idea. All I know is that they’re really really tasty. Each color is definitely a different flavor, but without a list it’s nearly impossible for me to figure out what flavors they are.
The bears are a little larger than regular gummi bears, but not by much. Each one has a beautiful texture, with a very fine sugar coating and is firm, but not overly so. The flavors are crisp and succulent (no, really, that’s the word that comes to mind!) with green being my favorite. Yellow is my least favorite, but I think that’s because I got an inordinate number of yellow in my bag.
I will tell you right now that when I go to this year’s All Candy Expo I will be heading straight for the Albanese booth! They make some delicious candy, and if you’re in the market for something that goes above and beyond the typical gummi, go find some of these!
