If anyone's stuck on gift ideas for me, it's always a safe bet to get me imported sweets. Case in point, this box of Angry Birds Star Wars gummies I got the other day. It's always nice to know that there's a sweet to complement your favourite mobile game, and what's more, there are five "collectable" box designs to look for. Y'know, just in case you like to collect empty cardboard boxes.
But enough about the concept and packaging, this is what you'll find inside. Six gummy flavours, in the shape of Angry Birds that are in the shape of Star Wars characters. Well, mine weren't exactly perfect, but you can kind of make them out if you squint and turn your head.
But hey, the proof of the gummy is in the tasting, and these aren't all bad. There's a good selection of "darker" flavours, in the form of strawberry, cherry, grape and blue raspberry, and they all taste pretty fruity. The blue raspberry and cherry are a little on the weak side, but they're still pretty nice. There's also lemon and apple, and while the apple is not all that flavoursome, the lemon is very bold, with a bit of a sour kick. So really, it's half and half with these, some great, some okay. They're all nice though, so grabbing a box isn't a bad idea. Just don't expect to be blown away by all the flavours.
My rating: 4/5
