How can you tell if you have a weaker jaw than normal? I only ask this because these chocolate ball really give my mouth a workout. I took a handful of these to review, but I couldn't manage more than four of them, and it had everything to do with the texture. It was so rough that I didn't even really think about the flavors until my third candy. I was so focused on just physically getting through it, that flavour didn't even cross my mind. On my last one I decided to suck it for a while and that helped a bit.

The problem was when I sucked on this candy it upset the balance of the flavours. The candy is very simple, it's some kind of super solid licorice/toffee surrounded by a smooth milk chocolate. The chocolate was very good, and blended well with the licorice/toffee flavour. The toffee flavour was interesting, and I can't say that I've ever thought of blending toffee and licorice before. It was a little bitter, like most licorice is, but it had slight sweet notes. Blended with the chocolate the sweetness of the toffee came out even stronger.

While I think these Bingo candies tasted fine, and the idea was fairly creative, I just can't get over how tough the center is to eat. My jaw is going to be sore for a while.
