Review: Key Lime Pie Twizzlers Filled Twists (Taste of Florida)
JFG Nation, Happy Tuesday!
Today’s junk food: Key Lime Pie Twizzlers Filled Twists (Taste of Florida)!!
Hershey’s has a new line of “Tastes of America” candy, and these Key Lime Pie Twizzlers Filled Twists is one of their Florida tastes. I’m still waiting for the Taste of Boston bean-filled Twists.
DO THESE TASTE GOOD? Yes!
WHY OR WHY NOT? For all the complaining people do about Oreo coming out with random flavors, no one is lighting a torch against the fact that Twizzlers aren’t even a licorice-substitute anymore. These Filled Twists are Twizzlers in form only, but they taste like fruit punch and ish. How is THAT ok?
Nevertheless, as a key lime fan, I have to say I really enjoyed these in a weird way. While the outer rubbery “Twizzlers” is kind of bland – a rubbery Twizzlers confection that leans with a bit of citrus – it’s the inner squisher filling that really tastes like key lime pie! It’s almost like the filling of a key lime pie itself (in a more candied form) – there’s an immediate burst of lime and meringue and slightly tart flavor. I was astonished how good these were.
The innards had good lime flavor and weren’t cloying. It almost had the same tartness of real key lime pie; it represented the flavor well enough. Did I get buttery crust? No. But I did get enough meringue-y like flavor that took these beyond just LIME flavor? Yes in spades.
I liked these. A lot.
ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW? You’d think these might color your insides. I didn’t eat enough to find out.
