Unless you're sugar-conscious, I can't imagine anyone disliking gelatin. It's been a treat we've all grew up with and made us happy when we took a break from watching TV, playing with our action figures, playing video games, playing in the playpen—you know, kid things. And what better way to pave the way to take a look at some delicious gelatin?
Don't let the small box fool you. Although the box was simply designed without any bragging and punchy phrases to try to catch your attention, this red box has a formal presentation. With this cherry flavor, along with added preparation options in the back of the box, I found the taste to be very light but just the right amount of sweetness. Adding the right amount of water, even if added a little below the required portion, the result was very good and wasn't too viscous. In other words, what I mean is it doesn't harden to the point where it's like those dry, sugar-coated gel pieces you get at candy stores (you know what I'm talking about). The flavor wasn't very strong either; Many people would beg to differ but I actually liked it.
I eat this a lot, and if I have the time, prepare it with delicious fruit to really spike the flavor of the gelatin. Overall, it's not too heavy and not too sweet. It is just right. Because the flavors aren't too strong, folks may call out about that with this product so it's something to take hold of, if you're strict on having strong flavor. That "Artificial Flavor" tag on the front box isn't the best thing to place there as it may detract buyers. (I understand the artificial flavor may explain why it's not so strong. Still, picky eater or not, it may not appeal to buyers knowing that what they're looking at isn't a natural, fresh-flavored product, despite the process in producing this gelatin.)
Excellent product, Royal®! I'm a fan.
