Fruit Chew TXT MSG

txt1‘btw… ur a qt! lol 🙂 l8r’ I admit I needed some help from my wife to decipher the message on the box. The fact that these were displayed in a ‘nostalgia candy’ section in the local store seems a bit odd. To me text messaging (or TXT MSG) is still a pretty new phenomenon, and to call them nostalgia candy suggests that they have been around since at least the early 80s

Honestly, I would not have picked these up had there not been for that second sign that read ‘75% off’. Apparently, people are not feeling very nostalgic at the moment, or at least not when it comes to candy.

These candies are pretty much what you would expect; regular run-of-the-mill opaque gummies with computer lingo abbreviations on them. Some of the colors taste a bit chemical, especially the blue ones, while some others are pretty tasty. Overall, I did not expect much, and these were definitely not as bad as I had expected. But they were not wonderfully tasty either. As with most boxed candy, the size of the box is not a true representation of the amount of candy you get.

Unless you get these at 75% off like I did, I can’t really recommend them. The handful of candy you get is just enough to last you through the composition of one text message; especially if I were the one typing it.
