This is not going to be an easy review, at least to set up. What I'm saying is that if you're not from the United States, this candy is not what you expect, I assure you. This is not a gummy chocolate candy, it's a gummy version of those rocket things. They call those rocket things "Smarties" in the U.S. and... You know what? Just read this.

Now I'm feeling really ripped off. First of all, these look more like gummy Lifesavers than gummy Smarties. Why do they have holes? I can get around that, however. I mean, it's a detail and I'm a stickler for details, but I can live with it. The big problem I have with this treat is the word "sour" on the package. Having eaten half of them so far, I taste no sour at all. I don't like being lied to on a package. That makes the Candy Critic mad and when the Candy Critic is mad, he give low scores.

The only nice part of this treat has to be the flavour, although the texture isn't bad, either. It really has a nice fruity flavour that does remind me a bit of (American) Smarties. This is actually a pretty good plus, but it doesn't make up for the lie.
