À la carte is a small little weekend feature that I am going to be adding to my site for items that I don’t feel warrant a full review.
If you didn’t catch yesterdays review of the Twizzlers Key Lime Pie – you should check it out! Hershey’s have created a handful of limited edition “Taste of state” that include classic candies like Kit Kat, Hershey’s, Reese’s, and Twizzlers to name a couple. If you read my Key Lime review you would know that I think that the land of licorice is a polarizing place – with some people loving Red Vines (such as myself), or Twizzlers (not me!), and rarely do you find someone that likes both. I would say orange anything ranks middle of the road for flavors that I enjoy. I don’t hate it, but it is definitely not my first choice when it comes to fruit flavored candy. I was also a bit conflicted by the fact that they chose orange for Florida and not California, but oranges are produced en masse in both states. Anywho, enough semantics.
My experience with the Key Lime Twizzlers left me hopeful. Was I slowly being converted to the Twizzler masses? Like I said before orange isn’t exactly my favorite, but these ended up actually being somewhat decent. The Twizzler part was soft and chewy, unlike what I am used to when it comes to classic Twizzlers (ie: plastic) and the inside kind of reminded me of the orange Tootsie Rolls. If you haven’t tried the fruity Tootsie Rolls, get it on it! The lime and vanilla are my jam. I honestly thought these just tasted like orange filled orange Twizzlers instead of a Orange Cream Pop. For me it was missing that distinct vanilla ice cream flavor that I am used to when it comes to eating that tasty frozen treat. Overall if I had to choose, I would pick the lime, but to each their own. If you’re into orange flavored things, I would give them a go – though they are limited so pick them up while you can.
