The packaging speaks for itself with a turkey dinner on display with fall leaves in the background. What flavors are inside and is this a joke or a Willy Wonka creation?
Instagram user PuppReviews wrote a review on the product and revealed how to distinguish the flavors between the candy corns.
Start your dinner off with green beans (all green candy corn), he called it “sweet with that field-fresh after taste. Honestly, kind of enjoyable.” Roasted turkey is with the brown tip and yellow bottom. “We’d say odd, but that would be forgiving,” they wrote. “This flavor is downright wrong to be in candy, but still enjoyed the taboo experience.”
Cranberry sauce is all red in coloring and admittedly, it’s “Also delicious! Kind of sour-sweet.” Ginger glazed carrot is all orange and is “Sweet and delicious with a little bit of spice!”
Sweet potato pie has an orange tip with a white bottom. The reviewers call it “amazing.” “Great cinnamon flavor on the after taste.” Ready for your next course? Stuffing is with the brown bottom and white tip. “Another forbidden fruit like the turkey one,” they concluded.
