RJ's you are an absolute favourite brand in my household and also now of other family members and friends, you always have such exciting and delicious new products popping up on supermarket shelves and every time I come across them I think to myself "surely these can't be better than the last products which you released", however sure enough each time you top your last product. When I first saw these AMAZING sounding candy coated strawberry chocolate balls come out one day on a facebook page I went searching for them in supermarkets though I was not fortunate enough to find them, so luckily I was able to get some for review.
There was no doubt at all in my mind that these were more than likely about to become my new favourite RJ's treat after all strawberries and chocolate are 2 of my favourite foods, and when they are combined they are absolutely divine. The packaging of these delightful treats is very eye-catching and attractive I love the combination of the silver package (which is resealable) with the black, gold and pink accents. There is a small see-through gap in the package where you can see the exact product you are getting which resembles exactly that of the images on the front package.
I was most impressed by the number of contents that each bag holds, especially as there 8 servings per package, and each serving would be roughly 3 or 4 balls each time and these are quite large in size, they remind me of the size of the giant Jaffas I used to eat as a child. Miss 5 was rather excited by these beautiful pink balls (after all pink is her favourite colour) and was begging to eat one right then and then, how could I say no to that? Biting into my first ball I was greeted with a lovely crisp candy shell outer, which reminded me of strawberry milk, the chocolate layer was smooth and sweet, but not too sweet and was a perfect thickness and in my opinion had a taste of strawberry, most likely due to the strawberry licorice and candy coating it was sandwiched between. The strawberry licorice was soft and chewy with a very mild flavour, however, this worked well with the other flavours and didn't overpower them, if I was wanting to eat the licorice on its own however I'd probably want a stronger flavor.
My partner and Miss 5 were equally impressed by this product and definitely agreed it is one of our favorite RJ's flavors so far, we loved all of the different textures and flavours, Miss 5 loved the lolly hiding inside the chocolate and we have decided these need to be purchased when we happen to come across them. Usually I love buying RJ's to help support New Zealand companies, however, on reading the back of the packaging I see these are made in Australia which has left me a bit puzzled as all my other RJ's products I have on hand are made in New Zealand! This won't stop us buying these again luckily. I can't wait to see what you bring out next RJ's, but I think it would awesome if you could extend on your range of chocolate candy coated balls.
