Review: Banana flavored Dum Dums

Stored under Caption This!GamesMiscellaneousNewsRecipesRelated EBay AuctionsReviewsVideosVisual Stimulation on May 16, 2006

I was looking through a bag of candy at my father-in-laws house the other day and came across this '100th Anniversary Flavor' Dum Dum. For those who do not know, Dum Dums are simply suckers with a wide selection of flavors.

The first thing that caught my eye was the fact that the wrapper said '100th Anniversary Flavor' however right under it says 1960. Which is it? It is only 46 years old or is it really 100 years old? How does this get through quality assurance? Maybe they are called Dum Dums because of the people running the place are not that intelligent?

Anyways, as far as the flavor goes, it taste like every other banana candy. Basically, it taste nothing like a banana. I have already posted in the past about banana flavored candy tasting nothing like a banana so I won't go into it again.

Did you find this post useful? Then Digg It.


Spangler Candy Company was founded in 1906.
1960 was the year banana flavor was introduced for dum dums.

It may not taste exactly like banana but it's pretty close if you ask me.

Mmmmmm. I prefer artificial banana flavor to the real thing. Don't get me wrong, I love bananas. I just really love that fakey chemical banana flavor! Makes my teeth throb and my eyes bug out a bit. O.o
