Marshmallow Banana


Fear, thy name is "Marshmallow Banana". You're probably asking yourself why the Candy Critic would fear something that would ordinarily be right up his alley. Well, it's simple. I have to admit there are a few treat-like things that I'm not a big fan of. Just because I'm a candy fanatic doesn't mean I have to love everything. In fact, as a critic I think it's my job to not like everything. If I loved everything, what would be the challenge for the candy world? I would just love everything I ate and these reviews would get very short and boring. I say all this because I'm not a big fan of fake banana flavours, nor am I a big fan of marshmallow. You can see why the beads of sweat are dripping down my forehead right now, why would I want to eat a Marshmallow Banana?

I'm happy about one thing. These Marshmallow Bananas are either really stale, or the consistency is different than your average marshmallow. That's a good sign in my books because I don’t have to deal with that weird texture that you often get with marshmallows, particularly the cheap ones. Although I do not like marshmallow most of the time, the exception is when they're not really marshmallow. I don't think that last comparison made any sense. For more reference to that idea, eat a box of Lucky Charms cereal. Those are marshmallows in Lucky Charms, but the texture is nothing like what you might find in a bag of Stay Puft marshmallows. The flavour of these Marshmallow Bananas does come through however, in the gross fake banana department. For some reason I just can't take fake banana, and I have yet to find one candy company that can make a banana flavoured candy that tastes real.

After eating this candy I’m creating a challenge to the candy-making world: make me a banana-flavoured treat that actually tastes like bananas! For now I’ll just have to continue hating most banana flavours treats, like this one.
