Apparently we unknowningly participated in some Mystery Flavor Challenge, by way of purchasing a bag of Dum Dums with three new flavors: Buttered Popcorn, Bacon and Pizza.
Because I assume they would appreciate feedback from four of their biggest fans, I am posting the results of the world’s cutest focus group. Results are as follows:
Buttered Popcorn (yellow): “It tastes…kinda not good.”
Bacon (brown): “It tastes baconey? Oh, and bad.”
Pizza (red): The only one who will eat it is the two-year old, and he seems completely indifferent. However, it did make my four-year old cry at the idea of tasting it. “Why does it have to smell so bad?” he cried.
I am completely on board with the whole new flavor concept. If you are looking to shake things up a bit, might I suggest flavors like Toasted Marshmallow, or Butter Pecan, or any type of milkshake, perhaps?
Or, you know, flavors that don’t make kids burst into tears.
This wouldn’t have been so bad if it weren’t for the fact that almost half of the bag of lollipops were wrapped in these mystery papers. My kids now sniff all of the red Cherry and Raspberry flavors now before hesitantly putting them into their mouths.
And my kids eat anything.
Those pizza pops are like kid kryptonite.
