I'm going to start off this review by saying, I'm not a big fan of fake banana flavours. This particular gummy is no exception, so in general I didn't really like these. Having said that, if you like fake banana candies, these might be right up your alley, but for me kind of yuck.

I can say that as far as banana candies go, these aren't the worst candies I've ever eaten. In fact, there's one thing I really like about these. I really like the fact that there's a slight sour aftertaste to these gummy bananas. If you eat a real bananas, there's this slightly sour flavour that lingers in your mouth after you've eaten it, and these are not exception. While the initial flavour of these gummies is nothing like a real banana, I think the after taste is pretty close.

Aesthetically there are some problems with this candy. The green ends of the banana are a little disturbing. Most of the time you don't want your bananas to be green, so I'm not really sure why they went this direction for the colour. I'm also not a big fan of the name, in particular the word "juicy". You don't want your bananas to be juicy, that's generally the sign of a bad banana. These gummies are also not juicy either, so it's kind of a lie all around.
