These bags with Mallo-licious caught my eye in the local Walmart. I have never seen them before, so I imagine they are pretty new. They are only $1 for a fairly big bag, so seems like a good deal. Our local store had five different flavors – strawberry, sour peach, banana, red raspberry and vanilla. These candies are big, and so there are not that many in each bag. Also, they are seriously sweet, a 33g serving contains 28g of sugar. We’re talking 85% pure sugar! (your average candy is more in the 50 – 65% range).
Big luxurious fluffy strawberries. The jelly in the middle is soft and jelly-ish. The strawberry flavor is artificial, but they are tasty with a nice strawberry aroma.
The bananas does not have a jelly-filling, but they have a nice banana flavor. Like all the other mallo-licious candies they are very sweet.
The vanilla does not have a jelly filling. And with their vanilla flavor they are most like regular marshmallows. Very tasty
As the name indicated, the peach flavored mallos are sour. They are covered with a sour surface, while the interior and the jelly filling is sweeter. I like them best when popping a whole one into my mouth and let the sweet and sour flavors mix.
Ehh, red raspberry? Wouldn’t that be just a regular raspberry? These look very similar to the strawberries. The raspberry flavor is very faint; they mostly just taste sweet, very sweet.
Conclusion – These are sweet and fluffy, and dangerously fast to eat. Five pieces will reward you with 200 calories. They taste good though, and the jelly filling is an extra bonus that makes them stand out from other types of marshmallows.
