I received these as free samples from Wonka as a tasting of what fun things they’re offering for the Easter season. Out of the items they sent me, these stood out to me most right away. A long elongated package held these pretty gummies that sit in a protective tray and are individually wrapped. The package is brightly colored with giant lettering and a description at the bottom that reads: “From Wonka’s Edible garden”. I have to say these look really fun!
The Double Yummy Gummies come in three characters/flavors: a strawberry bunny, an orange duck, and a lemon lamb. I finally understand the “Double” part in the name, because I now see these are the kind of gummies that are dual layered. They have a squishy foam on the bottom and a colored gummi layer on top. Much like the “Wingers” gummies that Wonka has out right now as a year round item.
Lemon Lamb: tried this first cause I get really excited about lemon flavors, Smells like chemically lemon frosting, fresh and sweet with some strange artificial notes to it. The gummi is very thick, sticky and chewy, a nice chewing texture. The flavor starts off very tartly of lemon with those odd artificial notes to it. Then the second layer adds this creamy sweetness to it that mellow out the lemon flavor nicely. It leaves a funny aftertaste in my mouth. This reminds me of how those fake lemon hand pies taste.
Orange Ducks: Smells like a creamsicle. The flavor has a wonderful orange flavor to it that’s both sweet and tart with nice juicy flavors to it. the extra layer adds a creamy not to it, and adds some extra sweetness to it. It’s very reminiscent of the original orange gummi bears.
Strawberry Bunny: This one smells very familiar, and it took me a few minutes to figure it out. the aroma is exactly like a berry flavored fragrant red licorice. The flavor of this one my favorite of the three. It’s very “red” tasting, with the flavor of strawberries and raspberries, with a sour edge to it. Odd, but tasty.
These were really cute and original for a new Easter candy. I’m a big fan of the size and character shapes, and even tho the flavors were a little odd, I still enjoyed them. I plan on picking up more when I see them in stores.
