Why I Bought It:

It was on sale! Plus: test tubes! Who could resist dessert-type snacks packaged in little test tubes? Not me!

Tasting Notes:

The strawberry tasted kinda like strawberry. Same with the peach, the apple, and the melon. It's just about the closest an artifically flavored gelatin snack could get to the natural flavor they're supposed to represent. Think Jolly Rancher with a splash of yogurty tang. The texture is of barely-set Jell-O, and to get the entire contents out, contrary to the name, you don't just "grab it", you squeeze it -- ideally from the bottom, like a tube of toothpaste. Excuse me: a plastic TEST tube of toothpaste.
