Starburst Summer Fun Fruits
Note: This is a Presumptive Ephemeral Nom.
The third of several summer-related posts in a row!
Starburst says that these Summer Fun Fruits flavor will be available all this year, but I certainly haven't seen them everywhere, and I doubt they'll be available much past December 2012.
Starburst has so many different varieties, it's hard to tell which are ephemeral and which are not. I give them credit, however, because unlike Mike and Ike, their varieties almost always contain new flavors, not simply different combinations of old ones. And with Summer Fun Fruits, Starburst is doing it right by offering flavors that are similar enough to older flavors so as one can actually perceive the differences.
Tasting notes of the four new flavors -
Cherry Splash: Typical Starburst cherry, but with additions of banana and fruit punch. Much better than normal cherry. Great.
Strawberry Watermelon: Typical fake watermelon flavor, but fairly sweeter. OK/good.
Lemon-Limeade: Better than the typical lemon flavor, with a bit of added bitter lime zest. Much better than any average fake lime flavorings. Great.
Kiwi-Banana: Better than the typical fake banana flavor, being much sweeter, but also with an acidic tang. Great.
In the end, these are a bit better than the original.
Starburst Summer Fun Fruits: - Great
Original Starburst(for comparison): - Great
