I've seen these things a hundred times at my local candy store and I've never really thought about getting one, that was until I got an e-mail singing the praises of the Strawberry Charleston Chew. This puzzled me because I'd only really seen the vanilla and chocolate flavours, but never strawberry. Then all of a sudden the strawberry started to pop up everywhere, so I conceded and got one.

Was I dancin' the Charleston after just one bite? To be honest not really, it was a lot better than I thought it would be but it wasn't a gift from the heavens or anything. The taffy was average in flavour, the texture was actually really good, and the chocolate was a nice touch. It just didn't wow me, it was fine, just not a wow.
