This candy just goes to prove a point I've had about gummies forever, they can be turned into anything. I think the only candy that comes even close to the versatility of gummies is marzipan, but it rarely tastes like the thing it looks like. This particular gummy tastes a little like crème brûlée, it kind of looks like crème brûlée, and the bouncy texture reminds me of crème brûlée. I guess the only thing this doesn't have is any kind of actual brûlée. It would be really cool if they somehow managed to give this candy a crunchy toping, but it's not a deal breaker.

My biggest complaint about gummies is twofold. I hate it when a gummy looks like something but doesn't necessarily taste like it, and I hate it when gummies are bright crazy colours, when the natural colours of what they're trying to imitate work well. This candy doesn't fall into any of these pitfalls at all. In fact, this candy should be an inspiration for those out there making gummies. Trying making more dessert themed gummies, and make them as close to the dessert as you can.

I pretty much devoured the few Crème brûlée gummies that I bought. For any sweet fanatics out there, this is a great novelty treat for you. It's also a great way to fill a crème brûlée fix if you're too lazy to make any yourself.
