Juicy Banana Gummies


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. The problem I have with this flavour is that it really doesn’t taste like any banana I know, so for me this candy is kind of yucky.

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 banana, there's this slightly sour flavour that lingers in your mouth after you've eaten it. These gummies actually got that sensation of eating a real banana and made it work. 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.
