|I picked these up over 3 years ago as seen in this post!|
My wife was about to throw it away because I was eating them very slowly, but I'm not a huge "hard candy" guy. But then she tried one and was NOT going to throw them away. They are good! When I first started to write this, they had 21 ratings on Amazon, and 17 are a full 5 stars. (There were two 4 star, a 3 star, and a 1 star rating, but the 1 star rating is someone saying they LOVE them, so I don't think they know how to work the "star system.") Now there are many more reviews, so I think they're catching on!
Brand: Claeys Root Beer Old Fashioned Hard Candies.
Origin: South Bend, Indiana.
Purchase Place: "Minnesota's Largest Candy Store," Jordan, MN.
Sweetener: Sugar and Corn Syrup.
Review: These have a very "true" Root Beer flavor. They taste like a better "adult" version of the root beer barrels we all had at parades as kids. I don't often rate candies here, but if I were to give this a score like I do sodas, I'd have to say it was a better-than-average 8.
Score: 8 out of 10.
