Pocky Dessert Banana

Back when I was really into tasting all the types of Pocky (I still am to an extent). I recall loving how different this one was. Not only was it Dessert Pocky, it was also banana! Yum!


Mott's for Tots

Last but not least are the Mott’s for Tots fruit snacks. As you might guess, these are fruit snacks meant for toddlers. Not having children myself, I do have to wonder if there’s a need or even room for these in a young child’s diet. You know, since this stuff is candy. I also don’t know anything about parenting so who am I to say.

What makes these snacks “For Tots” I realized is the size. These are much smaller, at least half the size of a normal fruit snack. Which makes it easier for the toddler to chew and not choke on them is my guess. The texture is also different. These are more dense and sticky, while normal fruit snacks are chewier and don’t’ dissolve as easily.

Strawberry Banana: Very starchy and perfumy of bananas. Really tasty actually, I like it a lot.

Apple White Grape: The plain apple had grape notes to me, so I got this one confused with the other apple flavor.

Fruit Punch: The taste is similar to fake pink lemonade. I taste fruit flavors, but they’re metallic and somewhat sour. It does give off that “punch” vibe.

Apple: The plain apple had grape notes to me, so I got this one confused with the other apple flavor.

Out of all the Mott’s flavors I liked these the best since they were the most flavorful.

When I gave some of these to my boyfriend, he immediately noticed the texture difference and the more intense flavors. So it looks like it’s not just me being really picky! Out of all the Mott’s fruit snacks these are easily my favorite. I’m not saying go buy them for your toddlers since I feel weird doing that, but hey, they are tasty if you want some yourself.

Zero Bar II

When people hear I review candy, they always ask what my favorite candy is. That’s a very complicated question for me, since there’s so much I’ve tried and so many different kinds out there. I usually give them something that’s easy for them to understand since it’s mainstream, in “candy bar” form and somewhat unique: Zero bar.


Mott's Medleys

This second variety of fruit snacks by Mott’s is Mott’s Medley’s. These fruit snacks flavors are a combination of flavors in one piece to make something harmonious and delicious. I am hoping since I didn’t really like the mildness of the normal Mott’s flavors from the last variety I tried, that make this “medley” of flavors will make something punchier and more flavorful to me.

Since these are “Medley” flavors, there’s only four different types this time around:

Apple Blend: The flavor is very punchy, and tastes like a sharp apple cider right away. I like it!

Grape Blend: This one is also flavorful, you get juicy notes of concord and muscat grapes.

Tropical Blend: This one actually has some pineapple/peach flavors to it. I liked how I can detect two different fruits here.

Berry Blend: The flavor here is mild and jammy, and I do get notes of blackberries and raspberries.

I feel that with this flavor set, Mott’s certainly improved themselves. The taste is much more intense and real than their plain “all natural” fruit snack variety. I like this one much more and if I was into the fruit snack market, this one would be on my list to buy.

Mott's Fruit Snacks

The last variety of fruit snacks I have to review are from Mott’s. The first thing that come to mind when I think of Mott’s is their apple juice and sauces. So it’s interesting that they’re like Hawaiian Punch in the sense they’re trying to expand their product base with fruit snacks.

Right away the Mott’s fruit snacks come across as “healthier” and more “wholesome” than the Hawaiian Punch variety. It probably has something to do with their base drink product being fire engine red in color. Still it means I’m also going to expect more realistic flavors from them.

Banana Strawberry: Light yellow in color, the flavor is mild and somewhat starchy, which I feel it supposed to be the banana. I do taste some light strawberry notes, but they’re an afterthought I think in order to get some banana flavors in there.

Grape: Surprisingly hard to tell apart from the mixed berry flavor. This one also tastes just sweet a first, then you get some light concord grape flavors.

Apple: The taste is very mild. It almost just taste lightly sweet. I suppose there’s some light apple juice notes here, but it’s so hard to say.

Strawberry: Ah, this one actually has something to it! This has a nice sweet, jammy strawberry flavor which is pretty good.

Mixed Berry: This one also has some nice distinct flavors. You get some sweetness, followed by some light flowery flavors which reminds me of blueberries.

Pineapple: I was excited about this one since I love pineapple. Alas, it’s similar to the others: mildly sweet with no real specific flavor to it.

I was kinda disappointed with these. They really didn’t have much flavor to deliver, and isn’t that the whole point of a fruit snack? To taste yummy and fruity? If you like your sweets milder than most these are for you, but personally I like something more intense.
