Yupi Take Out


takeoutWhat’s better than fast food? Why, candy shaped like fast food, of course! This bag contains a mixture of five different fast foods – pizza, hamburgers, fries, colas and hotdogs. The first thing that strikes you as you pick up the colorful fun looking bag is how light it is. This fairly big-looking bag only contains 2.72 oz of candy. If you are looking for some candy just to eat, you are better off looking elsewhere.

takeout2Sour Fries:
The sour fries look great! The little pouch looks like a real fries container, and the shapes of the fries themselves are just like real fries. The taste leaves a lot to wish for though – they are slightly sour on the surface, and have a slight citrusy flavor. But overall they are pretty tasteless.

 

takeout3Pizza:
The pizza comes in a cool little cardboard box of its own. It looks very Italian and pizza-ish. There are five slices in a box. Each slice has a brown bottom and some red, yellow and white globs on top. The taste is actually not bad. If I had a bag of these I would finish is quite happily.

 

 

takeout5Hamburgers:
Made out of the same material as the pizza. I was a bit disappointed with the look of these. On the front of the bag is pictured a much more realistic burger. But in reality it’s just three pieces of gummy candy stacked on top of each other. They taste fine though.

 

takeout4Hot Dog:
The hot dog looks to made out of the same material as the pizza and hamburgers. Making a good likeness of a hot dog out of mass produced gummy candy seems a bit tricky, and I think they made a pretty good job of it. The mustard on top of the dog looks good, but I am not sure what the stuff on the inside of the bun is supposed to be.

takeout6Gummy Cola:
These look similar to regular Haribo cola bottles, but they don’t taste quite as good. Seems a little bit tasteless to me.

 

Conclusion:
This is a fun collection of candies. They look good, but the taste is just so so. It’s fun as a novelty item, and to give as a gift. But if you’re looking for something to satisfy your sweet tooth, look elsewhere. There isn’t a whole lot of candy in a bag, and the taste of it is just average at best.
One little oddity is that they have both paprika and turmeric listed as ingredients. Not sure what the purpose of these is, but I don’t detect any spicy flavors.
