Today we have my second sample from the vegetarian gummi maker Goody Good Stuff; Tropical Fruit! Out of the samples I was given, I received gummis from their vegetarian friendly flavors. They also have vegan friendly gummis too, which I was pleased to learn about. I will make a point to try them someday, since I am curious as to how those will stand up to “normal” gummies. Regardless, Tropical Fruit gummis on tap today!
Upon opening the bag the smell is exactly of a can of Del Monte fruit salad. No joke. I even asked my boyfriend to take a whiff just in case I was crazy. He also thought it smelled like a can of fruit salad. The gummis themselves are adorable. They have a nice tropical shape theme to them with palm trees, pineapples, berries and bananas. The gummies had a habit of sticking to each other I noticed. They weren’t sticky in my hands however, and they had a nice weight to them. They are somewhat translucent, if you hold them up to the light you can easily see through them. Much like the Sour Fruit Salad gummies I reviewed last time, they’re super attractive:
White Pineapple: Tastes fruity and of pineapple. Reminds me of the white Haribo gummi bear. It’s juicy and lightly zesty.
Yellow Banana: Starchy and sweet with a light perfume note. A typical banana flavor similar to circus peanuts.
Green Palm Tree: This is a surprise, it’s melon flavored! I was expecting apple. It tastea of fake watermelon at first then mellows into a juicy authentic honeydew.
Red Raspberry: Sweet and slightly taste with an herbal flavor. The “berry” flavor is faint and doesn’t show up until halfway through the chewing the gummi.
Red Strawberry: Has more of a fruity flavor than the raspberry. It’s more jammy, but the flavor is also mild and strangely herbal.
Orange Slice: Juicy and peachy! I didn’t expect that at all. Very sweet with perfume notes.
I shared these with my friends too and received very positive feedback on them. A great option for tropical gummies with no gelatin. I myself didn’t notice any difference in texture or flavor from more “normal” gummies. A must try regardless if you’re vegetarian or not!
