I recently had the opportunity to try out a couple of new taste treats from Yummy Earth Organics. Sour Worms and Sour Jellybeans.
First up was the Sour Jellybeans. I was a little concerned when they said sour. I popped a couple in my mouth . I was pleasantly surprised to see that they were tart, but not especially sour. More like tart fruit. I can dig it! These were intensely flavorful, like high end jellybeans.
I waited a couple days, then ripped open the Sour Worms. I was really leery of these, as they had the citric acid crystals on them, like other kinds of sour candy. They also didn’t feel very soft in the package. Hmmm…these are gonna be kind of intense. When I pulled them out, I was pleasantly surprised to find out the Sour Worms were really soft and fresh. I ate one. And then another. A few more. And one or two more. These had an intense fruit flavor and weren’t sour at all.
Yum Earth Organics are gluten free and soy free,. They’re also certified organic with no artificial dyes. I did find it a little curious that they don’t use vegetable-based gelatin, as that was the only ingredient I noticed that was preventing the company from calling these vegan.
