Headed back to my trusty gourmet foods store, I was hoping to stumble across a few things for my candy stashes. One of which was the Ragold Citrus Mix that I reviewed a few weeks ago. Happily I found them, but I also saw this new variety, the Tropical mix, right next to it. Of course I had to try it!
This mix has a bunch of flavors in it compared to the three flavors offered in the citrus mix. There’s also more colors and shapes too, so it’s fun to look at each of the little jellies. They’re like little gems or jewels almost.
Banana: flavor is sweet and starchy, and lightly of banana. it’s juicy and the flavor is very delicate.
Apple: Immediately a little tart and very floral. doesn’t taste of apple to me at all as it comes across as herbal, like a fruity herb tea.
Lemon: This has nice sharp sour notes and a smooth lemon flavor to it. mild in flavor too like the banana, and it’s sweet.
Peach: It’s very juicy with strong floral notes to it, something about it tasted…kinda odious? it was that fake peach flavor and it was strange.
Pineapple: Right away it’s juicy and very intense in flavor. the pineapple flavor is immediately tarty and intense, and it’s really like real pineapple. yum!
Strawberry: Very mild in flavor with sweet berry notes. It is lightly jammy, and difficult to detect in flavor.
Cherry: This has deep smooth flavor f dark cherries. like cherry juice, very woodsy ad sweet/tart. Really nice.
Pear: Juicy with citrus notes to it. didn’t remind me of pear at all, more like a melon.
I liked these a lot, better than the citrus mix! I was happy I found these, and I hope to find both varieties on my return trips.
