Skittles Fizzl'd Fruits

Skittles Fizzl'd Fruits is another one of my CVS finds recently. They look a lot like Sour Skittles when you first look at them, as they have a powder coating. The powder fizzes in your mouth and is kind of a fun sensation. I love fizzing candy, so this is something I enjoyed eating even though I find Skittles to be kind of too sweet with little real flavor. I still prefer fizzing hard candies for a fizz candy fix, but I have a hard time finding those and these are not too bad of an alternative, especially since I now know Skittles are vegetarian friendly.

I am a vegetarian and I kind of do not care about the little things (eg. gelatin and okay even sometimes the big thing of fish) and rarely read candy packages, but a few weeks ago someone was telling me what candy they avoid because it has gelatin and they mentioned Skittles. I never really thought of Skittles as having gelatin not that care, as I happily ate Sour Patch Kids as if they were not vegetarian until I finally realized they actually were and began eating them even more!!! So, when I bought the Skittles Fizzl'd Fruits I actually did first read the ingredients and realized they are in fact vegan. Yes, Skittles used to have strict vegetarian and vegan unfriendly ingredients, but not anymore.

Warheads Sour Chewy Cubes

Warheads Sour Chewy Cubes

I saw these little bags of Warheads Sour Chewy Cubes candy at CVS the other day for $0.33 each. I decided to try them because they sound like Sour Patch Kids. They do have similar consistency, but they just are not as tasty. The main thing is they are not sour at all. Of course, neither are Sour Patch Kids exactly. However, for something from Warheads I expected more sour. I guess the clue to them not being as sour as the hard Warheads is that the sour meter on the back says sour and not extreme or super sour.

Overall I think they are a nice small package alternative to Sour Patch Kids, but I still prefer Sour Patch Kids and I get way more for my $1 buying them at the Doller Tree than these little not even an ounce packs of Warhead Sour Chewy Cubes.
