Last night I took a quick trip to the local dollar store to pick up a few essentials. While there, I perused the Halloween candy aisle and found a few interesting tidbits to share with you. Today I’ll be reviewing the Gummy Candy Body Parts! Here’s the glorious box:
Reminds me a little of something you might find at a higher-end store like Target. The packaging certainly doesn’t scream, “I’m only a dollar!” The shape is a coffin, the face is a mish-mash of both Frankenstein’s Monster and Dracula with a see-through window showing some of the body parts inside. Let’s open it up:
As the box says, there are 12 individual gummy “parts” and the back of the package equates the serving sizes to 2. I wonder what parts I got:
This is what looks like to be a thumb. I must be all thumbs because I got quite a few of them. It does look realistic within the wrapper, upon opening the package:
Eerie as it is, the flesh coloring is almost spot-on and the way the red kind of shows through the thumbnail is downright creepy. It tastes like a cherry gummy, the texture (albeit a little too chewy) and smell is pleasant. Anyone for a foot?:
I got 2 feet, I think they were both rights. It is kind of hard to tell what it is while in the package:
The detail is unreal, down to the toes having nails. Not as eerie as the thumb, but on par. Do the “eyes” have it?
Not as realistic as the thumb, the eye looks a little disappointing:
Eh. It is okay I suppose… This one threw me:
Is it a lung, a kidney? Nope, it’s a heart:
There’s a little detail, but with the ventricles on the one side I thought it was a lung. All of the gummies have a unique & chewy texture. There were about the same number of hearts as thumbs, with only 2 eyes and 2 feet. I would assume that each box would have a different ratio of body parts. They are individually wrapped so that they could be given out to Trick or Treaters or slapped into a bowl for a Halloween party.
Totally worth the $1, surprisingly better no-name candy than I expected…
