    "This tastes like Calpis....except it's Skittle shaped. I like this."
    "It's kinda too hard though"
    "If you just suck on it, and move it around on your tongue, the taste gets kinda close to soap. But not quite..."
    "They taste like those little korean plastic bottle drink things..."

    Fruit: "Oo - sorta like jellybeans, only much chewier."
    "The lemon one is yucky."
    "Mm..springy. I like the chewyness of it. It's kinda like in between a jellybead and a gummybear. It's more gummybear, but it looks like a jellybean"

    "Really really smooth, these are good."
    "Hey these are the things that come in the plastic tubes right? Those are hard to find. I hardly see those anymore."

  • Jon: "Overall I like this candies. Good variety - really different textures and really different flavors for real. Kinda expensive though."

  • Maile: "This is good friends food."
