Wine Gums are neither wine, nor gum…what’s up?

Gummy candy and I have a long history. These wine gums are cuious candies. I spotted them at World Market, and they were a little pricey at $3.99 a bag, so I had high hopes.

When I opened the bag I found that each shape is stamped with a wine variety name such as shiraz, or cabernet, yet they don’t taste like wine. In fact, they don’t taste much like fruit either. They are pleasant to chew, but could use some flavor boost. If you are looking for chewy, fruits candy, I would suggest Rowntree’s Fruit Gums. The are very good, as are their little cousins the Jelly Tots.

You can find these online. I found them at Wise Choice British Foods.

So verdict on this variety of Wine Gums: don’t bother.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. I actually had the exact same experience with wine gums, right down to buying them at world market! So disappointing…

  3. I wouldn’t normally try a gummy candy that tasted like wine… I personally like cinnamon bears. They’re firmer and larger than the typical gummy bear.
