Having tried the previous iteration of Twisters - where there was no core of filling - I was interested to see how sour non-licorice would play out. I was hopeful, as I do enjoy confections that include some form of sour or sherbert element. When I opened the pack, I immediately got that cola-lolly smell straight away, so I knew they were going to be full of flavour but the 'blue lemonade' is a subtle flavour so I wanted to see how that survived the inclusion of a filling.

Both flavours were quite tasty, giving a sweetness burst without it becoming sickly or too rich. Not really one for the 'fake cola' flavour lollies, and never a fan of berry cola drinks, I was a little surprised by how well the cola flavour is paired with the berry filling. I expected, at best, to get nothing more than something resembling Berry V flavour, and at worst to get some ghastly sweet mash of the two, so finding that when eaten together they were quite tolerable to me. That's actually quite high praise considering my usual dislike of such combinations.

The blue lemonade had a nice, refreshing lemon sherbert centre that helped it stay clean and not slide down towards an almost bubblegum flavour. This was actually my favourite of the two. I found it was nice to eat as a mixed bite, but it was also quite tasty eating the non-licorice outer and the sherbert core separately too.

I'm not entirely sure I would buy this flavour again, but I have nothing against it and would happily sample a piece or two should someone else offer it to me at an event etc. For those who like cola lollies, this would likely be a treat for you.

Product reviews for listing 7325: Proper Crisps - Chipotle & Garlic Kumara Crisps -  Brand / Manufactured by: Proper Crisps

Product image for Proper Crisps - Chipotle & Garlic Kumara CrispsFor all you "out of the box" Kumara heads out there, here's introducing the newest Kumara Crisp taste sensation to join our award-winning range.

Our Kumara is grown and sourced from the rich alluvial soils of Northern Kaipara - known as the semi-tropical region of the upper North Island.

We've added a dash of Chipotle - a smoky dried jalapeno pepper and added to the mix some sea salt and crushed garlic, sourced from Marlborough along with our sea salt, creating a match made in "Kumara heaven."
