People often ask me what the difference is between similar treats treats. For example how can one cherry gum be better than another cherry gum, or how one chocolate cake treat can be better than the next. An appropriate question for this review is how might one grape chew candy can be better than another. Well this treat is a prime example of just that.

In this case better comes from a texture that I can only describe as chewy with a bounce. It's not like your teeth just indiscriminately sink into this treat, they're instead met with a little bouncy resistance. This treat only gets better because it's filled with little beads that affect not only the look of the treat but also the flavour and texture. This treat is gifted with a grape flavour that isn't realistic, but a perfect blend of sweet and sour. Sure a perfectly realistic grape flavour would be great, but no other candy company has ever come close, so in my opinion fake grape flavour is much better.

This snack isn't the best treat in the world, but as far as chews go it's got to be one of the best.
