i discovered my new favorite gummy candy at world market the other day. not bears or worms but pig faces.
admittedly, the first couple pieces took some getting used to. not only is the candy human-like faces, but they’re flesh colored and soft and slightly textured in a fleshy way.
surprisingly enough, they’re not pig flavored. rather than tasting like bacon or pork chops, the candy is some unidentifiable fruit flavor – strawberry? cherry? some mix of the two?
as so often happens, my first impression was wrong. rather than being creepy, the texture is actually charming – each piece can handle a good long chew without getting stuck in your teeth. personally, i eat one ear at a time before going in for the face.
