Sorry, junk food, OUR RELATIONSHIP ENDS HERE. We just discovered Crystal Light Hard Candy. It tastes just like the powdered drink mix, but it's a hard candy. Also, it has BASICALLY NO CALORIES. Like original Crystal Light, it's sugar free but tastes like real sugar. We're not saying you should eat a whole bag of these in one sitting but if you do, not that we did or anything, at least you won't get fat.
We sampled four varieties: Cherry, Orange, Strawberry, and Raspberry. Apparently there are also Lemonade and Pink Lemonade flavors, but we didn't get any samples of those, which is sad because we really want to know what the difference is (isn't Pink Lemonade just Lemonade with pink food coloring?)
Strawberry is definitely the highlight of the bag. (Or maybe it was raspberry. We couldn't tell them apart because they were both light pink.) Whatever it was, it was delicious, with a jam-like aftertaste that brought back memories of elementary school lunches. Orange is also a standout. If you like orange juice or Creamsicles, you will LOVE orange Crystal Light candy. If you don't like orange, you should probably avoid orange Crystal Light candy.
