The one thing about this candy that was untrue, based on the name, is the word "assorted". They are fruit flavoured, and could be called juicy, although the more I think about that, it's kind of a lie too. They were fairly chewy, in fact I would say that this candies best feature is the chewiness. Best of all it's not just one kind of chewiness, it's got two. There's the chewy taffy like candy, and small chewy gummy like candies found throughout the taffy. So it's really like a chewy candy double treat, and that's great. But then you get down to the flavour issue.

When I see a candy that says it's "assorted fruit flavors" I assume that there will be variety in this candy. The variety could be either from candy to candy (like starburst) or in some rare cases you get variety within the same candy. This candy on the other hand didn't offer either. If I had to describe it, I would say that these are citrus flavoured. At least that's the flavour you get from the taffy outer candy. The gummy candies in the middle might have had assorted flavours, but you couldn't taste them because of how strong the flavour of the taffy was.

It's not that the citrus flavour was bad, it's just far from being "assorted fruit flavors". Fortunately the texture was a great feature of these candies, and made me feel better about the lack of variety in the flavour.
