Oh yeah, I forgot! These are gross... [Apr. 28th, 2002|04:10 pm]
Kurt Onstad
I recently renewed my love of Runts (the candy), thanks to technomonkey having them in his car. So, imagine my pleasant surprise when I see in the vending machine at work: Chewy Runts. Just like regular Runts, but not as hard on the teeth, right?

Wrong. The first one I helped myself to was a lime. The taste first hit the back of my throat in a tart explosion. Then my tongue recovered from the shock of tasting something completely different from expected, and let me know in no uncertain terms, "THIS IS GREEN!" Note, it's green. It's not lime-flavored. It is green flavored. (Similarly, there are red and purple flavors, but not with this candy...)

I am continuing to eat the entire bag in the hopes that this will be an unpleasant enough experience to deter me from doing this again. Unfortunately, I doubt it, since I remembered after getting to the third or fourth green concoction that I have made this same mistake before and regretted it...

I coulda told you that.

You had a candy question and didn't ask me? heheheheh.

Oh, and in case you ever get tempted, don't try the chewy Spree or Sweetarts either. Both quite gross.

Now, see, I like the chewy Sweetarts and Spree. Maybe it's because I'm used to the tartness of those candies. Runts, however, should be sweet. And under no circumstances whatsoever, should a banana flavored item be considered tart.
