Tropical Punch is a great flavor in so many types of candy. Although for the life of me, I really don't know what fruity combination it's supposed to represent. It’s obviously supposed to be made up of fruit, and one assumes that this fruit is probably from a tropical area. The thing is, I always seem to taste a lot of red and berry like flavours in tropical flavoured treats, and these fruits are not tropical. This is but one reason that the tropical flavours confuse me. This treat was no exception to confusing me.
The tropical flavour was great, even though I don’t understand it. This tropical flavour used for this Pop Zoial had that perfect candy flavor. While the candy was fine, the problem with this treat had to be the novelty. Although the little Hulk hidden in the candy was cool (and hey who wouldn't want to suck on the Hulk) the problem came fairly quickly with the drool factor. The shape of the stick and the Hulk guy inside the candy made me drool sticky lollipop drool all over the base of the stick. The other problem came near the end, when you get down to the Hulk bust, I found it really odd and difficult to get all the candy out of the nooks and crannies of his massive bulk of a superhero.
Fun, a little bit sloppy, and definitely tasty. It also lasted a long time, not a bad treat at all.
