I have to say I'm both relived and a little saddened by this treat. I'm relived most of all by the fact that the black berries are not licorice flavoured. Whenever I'm confronted with a treat featuring a red and a black candy my first assumption is that it's red and black licorice. That would have been really disappointing with this treat considering the berry like appearance of it.

The part of this treat that saddens me a little is it's complete lack of flavour. OK, maybe “complete” isn't that fair, it does taste a very little bit like berries for about 3 seconds. Unfortunately the flavour is brief and really more of a perfume than a full on flavour explosion. You would think with a candy that has such a great colour and creative look that it would be bursting with fruit flavour. You also might imagine that with such a cool contrasting colour look to them that each would be a different flavour, but again disappointment abounds.

The texture with the little crunchy sprinkles on the outside is actually pretty decent. With the soft gummy it's nice to have a little contrast. Unfortunately the lack of flavour just makes this cool looking treat fall flat.
