Mr. Small & Little Miss Tiny "Soft Gummy Sweets"


From what I can tell about myself, I'm all for gender equality. I'd like to review these gummy treats from the point of view that both are the same, but they're not. I'm assuming by the package that Mr. Small is the clear red gummy, and Little Miss Tiny is the pink. As a man that considers himself to be sensitive to gender equality, the fact that the girl gummies are pink is a little disconcerting. Although I am happy that the Mr. gummies aren’t blue.

I'll start with Little Miss Tiny gummies. Unfortunately, I can't say that I really enjoyed them. The part that turned me off the most is the texture of these gummies. Little Miss Tiny is made up of that marshmallow like gummy, that feel more like a light rubber than a satisfying gummy. The flavour is OK, fruity, and a little tart at the end. I just wish she wasn't so darn rubbery.
Now I'll move onto Mr. Small. While he's also fairly chewy, it's a different kind of chewy, a more satisfying chewy. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the air that seems to be whipped into Little Miss Tiny that makes her chew less satisfying than the dense gummy that is Mr. Small. The flavour of Mr. Small is also a little stronger than Little Miss Tiny, and a little sweeter too.

While I'm not a big fan of Little Miss Tiny's texture, this bag of gummies was still very tasty. I really have to applaud the creators of these with the creative idea of making their “little” characters into little gummies. It might have been nice to have a few more of the characters of this book represented in gummy form, along with a few more flavours and colours.
