I was excited to find Spooky Nerds on one of my Halloween candy hunts. It’s a movie theater sized box, one side white “Punch” flavored and the other orange “Orange”. The box is decorated with adorable images of the Nerds creatures sporting bat wings, witch hats, vampire capes and ghost costumes. So cute!
Orange Spooky Nerds are flavorful and immediately remind me of orange soda, but with a slight tang to it. It’s zesty and sweet at the same time, which is a nice combination. They crunch wonderfully and are a blast to chew. Punch Spooky Nerds start off tart, and blossom into a fruity symphony that brings to mind Hawaiian Punch drinks. I get notes of oranges, pineapples, and passion fruits. When eaten together I get a flavor similar to a tropical sherbert. It’s fantastically fruit and feels like fun.
I wish these Nerds came in smaller and/or trick or treat sized boxes, as it would be much easier to eat and share them that way. The movie sized box seems like overkill to me, and if it wasn’t for sharing with friends, I would not have been able to finish the box.
