Of all the gummies I've talked about and reviewed, this one is a lot of fun. Oddly enough, I took an open online course about Probability and was fascinated by the mathematical beauty of Combinatorics. What is that? It's very much advanced counting, like how many three-topping pizzas you can make if you have six toppings to choose from. 'Lo and behold: This awesome product from Bazooka showcases a little bit of that. Who says you can't find math everywhere?
The tenderness of the gummies can't be denied. It is very soft and easy on your teeth, and you don't need to chew the gummies too hard to enjoy it (assuming you didn't place this in the refrigerator, first thing). The flavors for each pieces aren't too strong or overwhelming but it's enough for you to taste. Better yet, combine each piece with any other flavor you like! Another unique thing about this, going off the "match-em" label, is the gummies are made like LEGO® pieces. I'm not a kid anymore (obviously), and so there are gummy flavors that don't match but I combine them and eat them anyway. The fact that you can match and stack the gummies makes this more fun for kids.
I mentioned Combinatorics since any math lover could use this to match and combine any flavor you want. Even though the math has already been done, with the answer being 28 presented on the front of this package, it still makes for a fun challenge/test. I understand not everyone likes math, but I believe it's time to understand our place in this Universe; There's nothing wrong with loving math, as it is the language of Nature and the Universe. Anyway, this humble snack is great choice for both adults and kids.
Highly recommend this snack! I will close this review with one last question: What is a mathematician's favorite food/snack?
