I was immediately attracted to this box of Frosty Nerds when I saw them in the store. So many things appealed to me; the bright colors, the cute nerd creatures wearing hats and scarves, and the word “Frosty” in the name. What made these Nerds “Frosty”? I was really curious and was eager to find out!
The box is the standard movie theater styled box with the punch in pour hole in the top. I pour out a handful and I was greeted by a flood of Christmas colored Nerds.
Festive, yes. But Frosty? I don’t think so. To be honest I was expecting a showy white coating or dusting on the nerds. The three colors each have a different flavor. The red is wild cherry, green is watermelon, and white is punch. So let’s taste!
The red’s wild cherry flavor is surprisingly really good! Normally cherry flavors are too metallic for me, but this was more tart and fruity than cough syrup. Green watermelon is very fake flavored, but the tartness helped take the edge off it. The white punch was very tart at first then opened with a wonderful pineapple flavor. Really tasty.
Overall, I was really impressed with these, even though I haven’t eaten Nerds in a long time. These flavors were festive, unique and tasty! Something I could eat a lot of if left unchecked.
