I really thought I was going to hate this candy so much that I wouldn't get through the whole package, as it turns out, I was wrong. I can't say that I loved these either, but I feel like with a few tweaks they could be a pretty good candy. That's really rare for me because I often find fake apple flavours to be disgusting. So I was both shocked and happy that these didn't gross me out.

As for how they could be improved, two things come to mind. First of all the apple flavour, it needs a little something else. My first instinct would be to say that it needs a bit more sour. The caramel center of these Twizzlers is pretty sweet, so a slightly tart exterior would give these some great balance. Secondly the caramel could use a little bit more burnt flavour, as it is it's a little too creamy and sweet. I guess in general these Twizzlers are just a little too sweet and not flavourful enough. The flavour that's there is pretty good, it just needs a little kick from both ingredients.

The irony of me suggesting that the apple needs a little more intensity is that likely if the apple was more intense I may not like it. All I can say about these is that it's surprising that I didn't hate them, but I'm not in love with them either.
