So the idea of this gum is a little strange. It offers you three flavours, Orange, Pear, and Mango. With these three flavours you can mix up your gum balls and make other flavours. For example if you mix orange with mango you're supposed to get passion fruit. It's a clever idea to encourage people to mix flavours, the problem is it doesn't really work. The "Apple" flavour just taste like pear. The "Peach" just taste like a sweet pear. However the Passion fruit does taste a little like passion fruit.

The problem with the mixing part of this candy is therefore pretty obvious, but there's still more. The pear flavoured gumball is way too strong a flavour. It pretty much drowns out all of the others. It's too bad too, because frankly I'm not a big fan of the pear flavoured gum balls. They do taste a little like pears, but I find that as a gum, pear just doesn't work.

The highlight of this pack had to be the mango gumball. I'm not sure how accurate it is to an actual mango, but it tastes pretty good. I could go for a whole pack of these on their own. But I guess that would eliminate the "fun" game of mixing flavours.
