A-Train Tries It; Brach’s Turkey Dinner Candy Corn
Thanks to Shark Super Fan Ed for bestowing upon us this gift of Autumnal importance. I'm about to try all six flavors and give you an honest review.
This has all the elements of a Thanksgiving style dinner, the turkey, stuffing, green beans, ginger glazed carrots, cranberry sauce and sweet potato pie.
In trying to put forth as positive as a review as I can, if you like new flavor experiences, this is your kind of product.
When I first read about this candy, I was fixated on the green beans. Wondering what possible way can you make a green bean flavored candy corn taste authentic.
I think they managed to pull it off.
It was the first one I chewed into. I think if this was a blindfolded taste test, I'd be able to easily figure out that this is a green bean, so, in that aspect, it was a success.
They always say that there's no accounting for taste so I hope the fine folks at Brach's don't take this too personally. I didn't like the green bean flavor, but compared to the stuffing, turkey and ginger glazed carrots, I LOVED IT.
If there is a saving grace to this savory disgrace, it's that I really do like the cranberry sauce and sweet potato pie. Which is odd because I normally can't stand sweet potatoes.
The cranberry sauce isn't sour at all, it tastes more like a cherry cobbler.
I guess I was expecting more of a typical candy corn experience and not an attempt at replicating the flavor of these tried and true items. I'd have to say Thanks but no Thanks (bad Thanksgiving pun).
Consider yourself warned.
