Today's Review: Starburst Sweet Heat

It seems spicy sweets are something of a trend in the US, I found a few different brands with spicy varieties at an import candy shop recently. I've always been wary of spicy sweets, but I figured if anyone could get it right, it's Starburst. So here we have a selection of fruity chews, that are also spicy. If that sounds bad, you'd be right. There are some nice fruit flavours to start out with, such as the orange and watermelon, but it soon gives way to the "heat", which is a pretty strong and unpleasant artificial spice, that doesn't seem to want to complement the fruit flavours rather than overwhelm them. This is just the addition of heat for heat's sake, what could have been a nice pack of regular Starburst is now just ruined. Spicy sweets are not the way to go.

My rating: 1/5
