Review: Mentos Strawberry Mix

I discovered that there is a new (at least, new to me) Mentos flavor in the supermarkets and I could not wait to try the Mentos Strawberry Mix. Strawberry is my favorite flavor in a roll of Mentos Fruit and I think they once made a Mentos roll with just strawberry candies. Although initially it seemed like a dream come true to me, I got sick of the strawberry flavor, before I could finish the whole roll of Mentos. Now that there are three different flavors of strawberry, this problem should be solved.

In the supermarket, you can buy the Mentos Strawberry Mix in a pack of four rolls. At first, I thought that each roll had one of the strawberry flavors, but one roll actually contains all three flavors in random order.

I was a bit worried that the strawberry candies would taste too similar, but they really have a distinct flavor. The sweet strawberry candies (the very light pink, almost white candies) taste like sweet strawberry - just as the name suggests- , without a hint of sourness. The original strawberry candies (light pink candies) taste just like the ones in a roll of Mentos Fruit. I am sure most people should know how they tastes like. The sour strawberry candies (dark pink candies) were sour, but not to the extend that it makes you squint, just sweet-sour. It tastes really similar to the original strawberry candies as they also have some sourness. But the difference is that when you chew on the sour strawberry candies, you immediately get a rush of sourness in your mouth.

If I have to pick my favorite, it would be the sour strawberry candies, because I normally prefer sour food over sweet food. But all three strawberry flavors are really tasty. They might be a bit on the sweet side, but if it wasn't sweet, it wouldn't be called candy.
