Hi-Chew Fizzies Review
Who Loves Orange Soda? Hi-Chew Throws It Back to the '90s With Its Latest Fizzy Flavors
Hi-Chew gave us the heads up that it's releasing an exciting new flavor: Fizzies ($3). According to the email press release, the package, out March 6, contains "two nostalgic flavors, Cola and Orange Soda" thanks to the "'90s making a comeback." The cola flavor offers "real cola flavor with hints of vanilla and cherry" with a "slight effervescent texture on your tongue" as you chew. As for the orange soda, Hi-Chew promises a "perfect balance of citrusy sweetness and tang." But what do they actually taste like? We tried the flavors out and gave them a perfect score. Here's why:
These Hi-Chews capture the spirit of classic soda flavors without tasting artificial. The cola flavor tastes more like tart cherry, and though we couldn't detect the fizzy effervescence, it didn't take away from the deliciousness of the candy. The orange soda is more like Tang with its tart finish. Overall, Hi-Chew fans said they actually preferred these to the original flavors! Of the two soda flavors, the cola is preferred. One taster said, "It's like the gummy Cokes but they last longer. It's like drinking a Coke without a Coke. Very Willy Wonka!"
