LifeSavers Gummies: Bunnies & Eggs

LifeSavers Gummies Bunnies & EggsThe new LifeSavers Gummies Bunnies & Eggs are charming little Easter themed gummis that come in five different shapes and six different flavors.

The bag has the old LifeSavers logo and design elements to it (the rolls are rather different these days). It also features the bug-eyed bunny that appears on the Jelly Beans.

The flavors are Lemon, Apple, Orange, Tangy Cherry, Tangy Punch and Watermelon.

All the candies are sherbet colors, soft, opaque pastels. They’re bouncy and squishy, not quite greasy but they definitely cling together readily.

I expected them to be big, about the same size as the hoops known as LifeSavers Gummies, which themselves are larger than the hard candy version. Instead they’re actually smaller than the little images on the package. These cute and plump little shapes are barely the size of a traditional gummi bear. (I threw an M&M in there for you to see the scale.)

Blue is Tangy Punch - it reminds me of Hawaiian Punch. It’s tangy of course and has an artificial flavor to go with the tropical fruit.

Green is Apple - it’s far less tart than I expected. A little like apple juice.

Orange is Orange - it looks like sherbet and tastes rather like it too, soft and mellow with a light sour note but mostly a juice flavor.

Red is Watermelon  - at first I thought it’d be cherry. The watermelon reminded me of Jolly Ranchers in the best possible way. Fresh, a little more intensely fruity than the real melon and of course an artificial version of the actual flavor.

Lemon is Yellow - I didn’t care much for this one, it had a metallic note, like drinking lemonade in a can.

Pink is Tangy Cherry -  this is not the cherry I associate with LifeSavers. It’s far too mild and though it’s called Tangy Cherry, it’s not terribly sour at all.

On the whole they’re adorable, rather mild but nothing extraordinary. Gummis for Easter aren’t that common, so it’s nice to see a themed product. There is no allergen statement on the package but it does contain gelatin and of course artificial colors & flavors. It doesn’t say anything about gluten or nuts.

  3. I think you have a terrible taste in candy. As a candy lover, these little things were not only cute, but they were the best tasting thing that didn’t give me a tummy ache. Tempting? Personally, I think it should have been either Suburb, at the highest, or at least tasty.

  4. They changed the formula this last year which just sucked.  They just took the flavors they have in a standard gummies bag and are using the shapes. I used to wait every year to buy $20-$30 dollars worth of bags of these but now they ruined them. I can buy these flavors anytime. Who cares if they are in bunny and egg shapes.

  5. I’m with you on this, James! When I bought two bags this year, I was SO mad. Why would I want to eat gummies I can get all year long just because they’re in different shapes? They aren’t even pastels so what’s the point? I hope they decide to correct this and change them back, because they were really good and nice to look forward to every year.
