Gummy Bears on a Chocolate Pool Day

Dear Sillies, 
   I mean, how could I walk by this? Mini GUMMY BEARS on a CHOCOLATE POOL DAY!  While on an otherwise dull Trader Joe's shopping trip, I saw them. They saw me. Then they shouted in their quiet, determined, little gummy bear high-pitched voices: "Come on, Robyn. We know you want us!" Would've been rude to keep moving. Right? If you look close, you'll see little tiny gummy bear foot prints, gummy bear underwater gear, gummy bear water noodles.
   How was it? It was like candy-coated frosting on steroids. Super sweet in a very kid-friendly way. Friendly to this adult too. The little innocent gummy bears tasted fruity, like jelly, in the mix. But I didn't detect much of the dark chocolate - the white has a stronger flavor. Might be too sweet for ya'all, but not for me. As for health benefits, it's 25% iron! We all need iron! 
   Those cute little innocent gummy bears continue to celebrate summer's approach, as they float gleefully in my belly. 
   It was $2 and worth it. But don't say I didn't warn you about its epic sweetness.
   I give this one an 8.5. 

Take care, my friends.
Get your iron, and your sweetness.

  2. It seems like an odd combination but I guess it works. I wonder if they make Gummy Bears floating on a butterscotch pool?

    1. Ooh, butterscotch. Now that would be worth a try. Glad you can eat butterscoth, Diane.

  3. Your dedication towards the difficult job of taste testing continues to awe me. An under rated service industry.

      Thanks, EC. I agree, I'm under-appreciated for these sacrifices.

  5. LOL....too cute. I'm not a fan of very sweet, so think I best pass on that, but 25% iron.....wow.

  9. I guess once they are inside floating away they'll iron out the rest of the details.

  10. I’d prefer them with only dark or milk chocolate. But oh so good.

  14. I somehow missed this:) Iron plus the benefits of chocolate...what's not to love?

  15. I didn't know there was such a thing as something being too sweet. Better than taking iron pills for sure.
