Yet another limited edition Mentos flavour has hit the shelves in recent weeks. As I mentioned in my last Mentos LE review, the limited edition flavours are Mentos' dstributer, Stuart Alexander, testing the market - usually Woolies - for initial sales figures, before releasing it elsewhere.
Like the Strawberry roll from earlier this year, the Green Apple roll features one flavour from the Rainbow roll. Interestingly, the Rainbow roll in Europe differs from the one released in the US; the Euro version includes green apple, whereas the US version doesn't have green apple but instead has cherry.
The package is bright green and covered with images of, you guessed it: green apples. The foil is also lime green as well, a nice touch to make the package quite distinctive. The dragees themselves are a pale mottled green in colour (some were missing patches of colour), and standard Mentos size. They don't smell like anything, but biting the candy shells reveals a refreshing apple juice flavour: tart and sweet at the same time. They are very nice and juicy, and aren't that far in taste from a real green apple. I don't get any artificial flavour notes either. They are quite realistic, so you had better like apples!
I really enjoyed these as something different from my usual sweet-tooth cravings, and will probably pick up a roll to keep beside my desk.
5 out of 5 stars.
