Today's Review: Wonka Fun Dip

Dip Dab style sweets aren't ever my first choice for a snack, but I think they're worth trying out from time to time. There's just something uncomfortably time consuming about having to work your way through the deposits of sherbet with whatever lollipop tool you're given. The ones I've tried in the UK are okay, a few nice fruity flavours and dipping options. But I found this effort by Wonka in Mr. Simms, and I had to give it a go.

A Dip Dab offers one type of sherbet, a Double Dip sports two. This Fun Dip goes the extra mile, showcasing three distinct sherbets, as well as two sticks to dip into them. That was impressive enough to start with, but actually digging into the sherbet, I was met with a whole host of lovely flavours. The Cherry Yum Diddly is probably the least adventurous of all, but it's certainly nice and fruity, with a flavour quite reminiscent of natural cherries. The Razzapple Magic dip is a fantastically sour blue raspberry effort, and the tang of the sherbet makes for a fizzy little party on the tongue. Finally, there's the Grape Yumptious, which sports that all American grape candy flavour. It doesn't taste much like real grapes at all, but it's a very bold, dark, sweet flavour that I can't get enough of for some reason. It's also quite tangy to boot, which I think only enhances the flavour that comes out of it. As for the sticks you pick up the sherbet with, they're pretty thick and sturdy, much like the stick you find in a Double Dip. Even if you have some left over after cleaning out the sherbet, they're pretty tasty to munch on.

So there you have it. If you're a sherbet dipping fanatic looking for something a bit more ambitious, look no further than Wonka's Fun Dip. Every flavour is awesome, and you get an abundance of dipping tools to help you out. Well worth a try.

My rating: 5/5
