Cola Balls

Cola-flavored candy ranks pretty high in my top 5 favorite types of candy. Wonka Bottlecaps, Haribo Happy-Cola Gummi Candy, and Soda Pop Shoppe Jelly Belly jelly beans have been perpetual favorites. But… change is a comin’ around here and there’s a new kid in town. He’s shiny, long-lasting, delicious and named Cola Ball. Sweets4MySweetie, a retro and European candy shop in Canada, is chock full of ‘em.

These fellows are fantastic! They’re round, silver balls that, yep, you guessed it, taste like cola. And, as if a long-lasting cola flavor wasn’t enough, as a bonus, they also look like ammunition. While I now enjoy this particular trait of cola balls, I was less than thrilled at first. Imagine my surprise when I opened a box of what I assumed was candy and found a nondescript baggie of large BBs!

I was thinking, uh-oh, did I write an unfavorable review of someone’s candy and this is a warning? Have I angered anyone lately? Does someone in my home have a weapon that they haven’t mentioned? As it happened, it was just that time of the year when A Christmas Story was about to be aired on every channel. Thinking about my Christmas wishlist reminded me of Ralphie and his coveted BB gun. So, I breathed a sigh of relief when I read the business card at the bottom of the box and learned that they were just silver, non-nefarious jawbreakers!

These aren’t your ordinary, run-of-the-mill jawbreakers, though. They are delightful, shiny jawbreakers – everyone knows shiny makes everything exponentially more appealing! If you run across them, I highly recommend grabbing some. Just make sure you have enough to share because you will end up sharing them! And, if cola isn’t your thing, I’m sure they could be repurposed in any number of ways. Perhaps, impromptu marbles, decorations on a birthday cake at the local NRA meetup, as parakeet toys, or of course, ammo for a slingshot, etc. For these reasons and their tastiness, I give them 5 Bonbons!

    In in Australia and am looking to get some of these silver rola cola balls but cannot seem to find anywhere here that sells them. I found one place that sells them online but wanted a stupid amount to send me some.

    Anyone have a online store that will sell n ships overseas. Or even better somewhere in Australia that sells them.
