    More Information:
    Oh my gosh, American Mike and Ike candies! Mike and Ike is a brand of fruit-flavored candies that were first introduced in 1940 by the company Just Born, Inc. They're a big hit in America so we got some and decided to see what our lovely Tryers thought of them!

                Wow....mind blown! an existential life lesson from a candy taste test..."it's like people. We're all the same on the inside with different flavoring on the outside."

                                  When it comes to sweets, I prefer chocolate things to gummy candies, but Mike & Ikes are the exception. As mentioned in the video, they're wonderfully flavored and taste like actual fruit. Most other "fruit-flavored" candies I've tried are bland and all taste the same, even if they're supposed to be inspired by different fruits.
