The Candy

We tried out three different flavours – The Blueberry Sour Strips, Sour Wriggles and Strawberry Hearts. It was Rs. 420 each for 150g.

Thin strips of sour and sweet candy, the Blueberry Sour Strips were my favourite. Although it didn't really give out a blueberry flavour it was delicious; the perfect work snack (unless you care about your health). Just don't eat more than a couple because you will end up with a tummyache.

The Strawberry Hearts were just terrible. None of us liked it. It was neither hard candy nor soft candy, something in the middle. While it did taste sweet and sour, I would have much preferred it to be softer.

The Sour Wriggles were tremendously sour. You only need one bite to give your teeth the sourness you experience when biting into a lime. The gummy worms were much better for people with a sweet tooth.

Ambience

The place we visited was only suitable for bulk orders because it was their storage space. You can put your order in and they charge you for how much it weighs. You're much better off just getting them delivered.

Overall

These candies are eye-catching and certainly addictive so just be careful not to overeat. You can easily find them at any one of the 15 outlets they have including Arpico (Hyde Park), Food City (Staple Street & Ward Place) and The Factory Outlet (Mount Lavinia). You can also order online for delivery within an hour or so.

P.S: One sour strip has 130 calories so just because they're not sweet don't take them to be healthy.
