The best reason to get these gummies is if you have some kind of fantasy about re-enacting the final scene from King Kong. Think about it, you're at your kitchen table climbing a chair up to the table with tiny little airplanes buzzing around. You reach your hand out and grab one of these planes while the little gummy pilot screams and possibly ejects. You then bite into the plane disabling the engines and eventually winning the little tiny (possibly gummy) girl.

If your imagination isn't up to par, or if you're not allowed to climb up on the kitchen table, these gummies still aren't that bad. I might have been a little happier if the planes where different types of planes but they appear to be some kind of two engine thing. The taste is kind of fruity, actually they're really fruity, and each colour has a nice distinct flavour difference.

The texture in my mind is really where these excel though. They are super chewy, and I mean super chewy. They take a bit of jaw work to really get them to a swallowable consistency and that's great. I imagine that if you had a big bag of these your jaw might hurt a little but these little single serving pouches with about 10 planes in it are perfect. By the time I got to the last one I could feel my jaw getting a little tender but it was still ok.

Yummy and fun, gummies at their best.
