This candy had one thing working against it, that was the fact that I've eaten the regular Strawberry Rambo candy. This candy just proves that when you make slight change to an already decent candy often it ends up in failure. If you've tried the original Rambo candy you'll know that it's a tough log of gummy filled with a dense cream with a light sour coating. These crunchy Rambos are similar, only there's no sour coating and they've added weird crunchy bits into the filling.

The biggest problem with these is the crunchy bits, mostly because they don't really make this candy crunchy, instead they make it gritty. Gritty is rarely a texture I enjoy (notice I said maybe as some exception apply). The other problem is that the sour outer coating on he original was also kind of nice. The sour coating on the original Rambo candies wasn't that powerful, but when you take it away, as you do with these, it's noticeable.

The flavour is pretty much the same other than the sour. I just don't like the fact that all of the improvements actually made this candy worse.
