Wonka Sour Puckerooms

puckeroomsJust as the Sluggles (read our review of sluggles) the Sour Puckerooms are part of the ‘Wonka’s Edible Garden” series of candy. What a fun idea – candy shaped like little mushrooms. I used to eat Malaco’s Skumkantareller (foam chanterelles) growing up, so it’s not completely new to me, but it’s still a little different. The puckerooms comes in three different flavors – cherry, grape and lemon/orange, and they have three variations of mushroom shapes. The shapes are a bit two-dimensional, but it’s just candy, after all.
The puckerooms feels a little bit harder than the sluggles, which might just be a result of the coating. They are not overly sour, and someone looking for a distinct sour candy might be disappointed.

Unfortunately, the taste does not quite live up to I’d say they are a step below their companions the Sluggles. They are definitely not bad, but I had hoped for a bit more.
