Swedish Fish Eggs

Assorted Swedish Fish EggsSeems like everyone’s getting into Easter versions of their popular candies. Cadbury-Adams has quite a few new varieties including Sour Patch Eggs and Sour Patch Bunnies (which I bought & will review soon) but the more innovative one appeared to be Assorted Swedish Fish Eggs.

The package is more than quirky. The little red Swedish fish is sporting white and pink bunny ears and a little talking bubble says, “What, you’ve never heard of Candiar?”

The package notes that it also includes Swedish Fish but it didn’t elaborate beyond that.

Swedish Fish Eggs

Inside it’s not a large amount of candy for a theater box. It’s 3.1 ounces, which means that the inner cellophane bag takes up less than a third of the volume of the box.

The assortment is a mix of the small Swedish fish and the little “eggs” which are half inch hemispheres. They come in three or four flavors/colors. Orange, lemon, lime and “Swedish Fish” flavor.

Swedish Fish Eggs

When I took the picture I didn’t know there was a difference between the light green eggs and the aqua eggs.

The Swedish Fish and the aqua eggs are the same berry flavor. Sweet, tangy and jammy.

The lemon eggs are mild, as are the orange ones. Not much zest or juice to it, but still an ultra smooth chewy gel. The lime ones were surprising and more sweet as far as I could tell and more zesty.

On the whole they were fun, the teensy eggs were different but took away from the interactive part of eating a regular size Swedish Fish (biting & pulling it apart).

These are made in Canada but there’s no allergen statement on the box. They contain no animal products, nut products or apparent gluten ingredients but you may want to check with Cadbury directly. They also may be vegan, depending on how you feel about eating mineral oil. (There’s no glaze or dairy in it.)

  2. ‘cause nothing says “Easter” like… fish… eggs.

    As someone who personally scrapes the roe off of sushi, I find this both hilarious and disturbing.  Which seems to be a theme for the easter candy this season.  smile

  3. The best swedish fish were at the candy kiosk at Sears when I was a kid.  This company’s fish are close, but a part of me longs for the fish I used to get.

    Mmm….fish…

  4. I bought these at work and LOVED them. They’re super addicting. I actually like them better than just plain Swedish fish…
