Hi Fellow Sweetplorers!
It’s Monnnnnday & I wanted to do a quick first impression of the new Lifesaver gummies Neons that I saw in CVS the other day. I am not sure if these are “new” persay but it was the first time I saw them so, it was new to me nevertheless. There were a few other new gummy concepts that I noticed such as the LifeSavers Collision Gummies and the Exotic flavors of the world, one. Admittedly, it would have been a close tie between getting the exotic flavors vs. the Neon ones that I did get but I had to make sure that I would like at least a few than to be stuck with a bag of little nasties:
Let break this down per gummy:
Cherry Lime Splash: Once you get chewing, it reminded me of a fruity cough drop…..no kidding. Now maybe it was just me but after I tried it again, the cherry seemingly prevailed over the lime, leaving the lime as a fresh aftertaste if that makes any sense. Unfortunately, for me, the bag has quite a few of this kind -sighs-.
Bold Berry: The bold berry reminds me of a lesser sweet version of the blue syrup that is in blue-shaded snow cones. Not bad…not bad at all : D.
The Electric Lemonade: WOW, this one came with a pop of lemonade in my mouth; truly the flavor is right on point and distinguishable as soon as I tasted it; unlike the previous ones.
Pink Punch: This one is particularly tasty in a good way, but I did not see a lot of them in the bag, which is sad because it does remind me of a cheap fruit punch and I am not mad about it.
Orange Pop: I don’t know whether the “pop” aspect referred to the POP of flavor that was suppose to come or pop in reference to an orange soda but it just tasted like a basic orange gummy. It was good but I don’t know what was “pop” about it. Hmmmmmm…..
Overall, I think the Pink Punch one was my favorite with a close following of the electric lemonade. It was not the best tasting gummy that I had but I found the flavor to be not only unique but tasty. Though, I am not big on candy, lifesaver classic gummies have always been a nice treat so trying these, was a must. While nothing tops the original, these are not a bad addition to the growing lifesaver family.
