I honestly don’t know what to call these. I mean a “Jolly rancher” is typically the individually wrapped tube-shaped hard candy.
These are just like that – but are square – more of a classic “mint” type shape. I find these more manageable and they don’t stick to your teeth like the traditional ones do.
I also adore the flavor selection here. In a pack of maybe twelve, there is a random split of Green Apple and Strawberry. The Green Apple is the classic and often loved flavor we all know – but I had never had a basic “strawberry” JR before. Excellent balance of flavors two if you pop them in together. I suppose the goal here is to try and go after the Lifesavers market?
Regardless, these “squares” as I call them are quite good and a welcome addiction.
