When it comes to eating sweets, there's a certain hierarchy of colour that I always stick to. I start with the worst, green, and work my way through yellow, orange and red, up to purple, the best. I'm sure this is the way it's supposed to be, because who the hell would think green is the tastiest? My inkling was supported some years ago with the release of the bags containing only red and black wine gums, and now Starburst has brought out this pack of several red flavours. So everyone must think red is awesome.
There are four flavours in this pack. There's the regular strawberry, red apple, cherry, and raspberry. Nothing overly different as you can see, but certainly some nice flavours to put together in one bag. Not all of them are that great though. The strawberry is just that, the regular old strawberry you'd find in your regular bag of Starburst. The cherry is perhaps the worst flavour. It tastes more like cherry bakewell than fruity sweet, and just seems a bit off to me. While the red apple seems a bit like a cop out, it's actually one of the best of the bunch. It has a tangy, juicy flavour that certainly tastes like a red apple. Alongside raspberry, which is also very flavoursome and juicy, these flavours make the bag well worth picking up. Every variety may not be perfect, but there are some very nice flavours of Starburst that you won't find anywhere else.
My rating: 4/5
