I love sweets. And I love Star Wars. So it was a no-brainer when I came across these:
They’re sweet! And Star Wars themed! Win-Win! Or not?
Read on in the first installment of Tusken Tuesday.
A long time ago, I found a packet of jellybeans in the local supermarket. I simply loved the quirky flavours, and I adored the sense of danger instilled by eating a handful. Would I get a delicious flavor or a downright nasty one? (Anyone who’s tasted pinca colada beans knows what I’m talking about…)
Those thrills all came back when I carefully opened this package. The smells! The colors! As a special addition, these Star Wars branded beans are even sparkly! If I’ve ever seen magic beans, these are them!
Judging by looks alone, they get an A+. Look at Darth Vader, lurking on that package. Almost begging us to taste his dark side treats. Challenge accepted mr. Dark Lord of the Sith, sir! Let’s dig in!
Flavor 1: Sparkling Blueberry
Very sweet. I bet my tongue is actually dyed blue now…
Flavour 2: Sparkling green apple
Sweet, with a hint of 10 tons of added sugar. Sugary.
Flavour 3: Sparkling wild blackberry
Ulgh! Wow, things took a turn for the worst quickly! Licorice, with a supersweet sugary aftertaste.
Flavour 4: Sparkling grape soda
Yegods! I actually gagged! If hell had a taste, this would be it. A strong aftertaste of housepaint. I hope the color additives will wash of my teeth…
Flavour 5: Sparkling sour apple
I don’t even know, I can still taste number four! Quick, someone get me some water, anything!
Flavour 6: Sparkling berry blue
The sugar rush just gave me a headache and my tongue is coated with a thick honey-like substance. Talking and swallowing gets harder every time I try.
In hindsight: tasting these was a mistake. I should’ve known better than to take candy from a Sith Lord. Someone hand me a pint of gasoline. I need to cleanse my palate.
