Candy Review: Super Mario 3-Dees Sour Gummy

Super Mario 3Dees Sour Gummy Candy

Nintendo continues to cash in on its classic video game character, the Italian plumber – Mario!. This time they’ve come up with sour and non-sour gummy candies called Super Mario 3-Dees. I tried the sour version because I love sour candy! The gimmick here is the fact that the gummy candies are actually three dimensional figures, like gummi bears. They come in four flavors and four shapes. The flavors are: orange, watermelon, strawberry and mixed berry. The shapes are: Mario, Yoshi, Diddy Kong and Donkey Kong. The shapes do not denote the flavor as some candies do, but rather you could get say 3 Mario shapes in your bag but they can be all different flavors.

The candies are all brightly colored with pretty much standard colors denoting the flavors (ie: blue for the mixed berry, orange for orange, etc.) The texture is that of a pretty standard gummy and of course they have the nice sour coating on top that gives a little crunch if you bite into it right away. As for the flavors, they are pretty much standard fruit flavors, there is nothing really outstanding about them.

It’s pretty obvious that these Nintendo candies will appeal more to kids who just love Nintendo games or the Nintendo collectors out there. The Super Mario 3-Dees really have two things going for them: one is the fact that these are three dimensional candies, not flat like Sour Patch Kids, and two that they are Super Mario characters. Otherwise, they don’t stand out as any better than other similar candies on the market today. If you’re buying them for the flavors, I think you’ll be disappointed but if you love Nintendo stuff or have kids that love Mario, these are great!

Jolly Rancher Fruit Chews

I grew up spending ten cents a pop on Jolly Rancher candies at my small town news stand. Those hard little rectangles (especially the watermelon flavor) were a favorite among me and my elementary school crowd. I still love a good Jolly Rancher today. When I saw these Jolly Rancher Fruit Chews at the Five Below store near me, I thought I’d give them a shot.

Gimbal's Sour Lovers Candy

I’m just going to come out and say it, Gimbal’s Sour Lovers Mix is the absolute BEST sour candy I have ever had! I’ve never had any Gimbal’s candy before and honestly I had never heard of them before I got this bag of goodness. I sure do know about Gimbal’s Candy now! They are so good that I let my husband have a few and from his reaction, I had to hide the bag in order to have enough for me to write this review. It was tough.

Candy Review: Sweet Candy taffy

 Sweet Candy taffy

I grew up near the East coast and made my fair share of trips to the beach as a youngster. One of my favorite spots was a local and popular restaurant, the Sanitary Fish Market. What could possibly make a kid actually request to go to a seafood restaurant? Salt water taffy can. Oh, the joy of sticky, sweet goodness. Sure, we were able to watch taffy being made at the State Fair, but it wasn’t nearly as good as the taffy from Sanitary Fish Market. That was the best taffy my 14 year-old self had ever had.

I grew out of taffy as an adult… or so I had thought.

Name That Candy: Wedge Lollipops

Name That Candy

Have you ever completely drawn a blank trying to remember the name of a wonderful candy from the past? Well, you aren’t alone! We received this email from Rebecca G. who is seeking a cherished favorite candy. We’re posting the question to all of our readers for an answer! Can you help a fellow candy addict by reuniting her with her favorite candy?

Recently I got to thinking about this old candy my 4th grade teacher used to give us, and it was a type of lollipop. They came in various different flavors, and they were wedge shaped. Each lollipop consisted of two colors and was a watermelon-esque wedge shape. I’m positive the name had either “wedges” or “wedgies” in it — surprisingly, nothing relevant came up after googling using those terms.

I lived near Cleveland, OH, and had these lollipops in 1998/1999. She bought them in a plastic tub, maybe a bit smaller than a coffee can. They were individually wrapped in a clear plastic. If you know what kind of candy this is, is it still being produced? I remember these being the most delicious lollipops I ever had, and would love to try them again.

Let’s harness the power of the people and figure this one out. If you have any additional information or know what the candy is, post your comments and let us know what the mystery candy could be!
