I have a bit of a dilemma when it comes to reviewing this candy apple lollipop. First of all I'm not a big fan of many apple candies. Secondly this doesn't really taste like apple at all. So I'm stuck, do I give it a low review because it doesn't taste like apple, or do I give it a high review because it doesn't taste like apple?

The thing about this candy that makes this choice even harder is I really like the flavour. I can't really describe it, except to say that it tastes like candy. It doesn't taste like any kind of fruit or spice, it just taste like candy. That's not to say that it doesn't have any flavour either, it's not just a ball of sugar. There's some kind of flavour to this lollipop that's very subtle, but all I can say is that it's not candy apple.

As with many "gourmet" lollipops, that size is a little too big to fit in my mouth comfortably. I'm not sure why bigger is better with lollipops, but that is the trend. Fortunately these aren't so big as to cause any pain to my jaw, but they are a little uncomfortable at first.

I think if you're looking for a strong candy apple flavoured lollipop, you're going to be disappointed. However if you come at this lollipop with an open mind and a knack for tasting detailed flavours, you might really enjoy it.
