Hi All grin

I have a friend who is undergoing chemo treatments.  She’s told me that orange starbursts do a great job in cutting the metallic taste that she (and apparently many other chemo patients) have when they eat.  Of course, it’s a bit of a hassle and a waste of money to buy a bunch of starburst only to pick out the orange ones wink

I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to purchase only one kind of starburst - are they even packaged that way?

Thanks!

The Starburst product locator has a Starburst stick - I don’t know if this means an actual stick of one flavor of Starburst or a small package containing a few of the chews.

I don’t think they’re sold in single colors

You might be able to find them in a bulk bin at a grocery store and just pick out and pay for only orange ones

Halloween’s not too far off, if you’re in a country that celebrates it. You could always save the rejects for the trick or treaters. They’ll just think they got an unlucky mix. wink

Interesting though how it works, though. I guess the orange slices jellies don’t have quite enough of a kick to substitute? http://www.oldtimecandy.com/orange-slices.htm
