My final Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store post (from this past year’s journey at least). This is also made by Kenny’s Candy. They’re gummy soda bottles, obviously. They have several brand name flavors, but we only care about these root beer ones. I love gummies. They are probably my favorite type of candy. This is my first experience with root beer gummies, so I had high hopes for this, especially because they are made with A&W Root Beer concentrate, which is a good root beer. Though, usually gummies are fruity, there’s spice drops, and those are gummy and yummy. Root beer can be spicy too, so it could work.
There’s a very mild root beer flavor that has a slight wintergreen aftertaste. If you eat a lot of them, that wintergreen builds a bit, but really it’s hard to tell. They are really bland actually, with little root beer and even very little sweetness. It really tastes like gelatin more than anything. Gelatin with some wintergreen.
These are actually really bad. They don’t really have flavor, other than that hint of wintergreen. I eat them and eat them, yet they don’t get any better. I’ve had failed attempts at root beer candy before, but these have got to be the worst, sadly. I don’t even recommend trying these for the experience. Hopefully I’ll find some good root beer gummies some day.
