Very gross, as advertised
on December 15, 2011
I bought this item because I think I tried what must have been the 1st edition and it was fun to guess which flavor you got and laugh as friends made weird faces while eating the gross flavors. I was able to eat most of those 1st edition gross ones, save one or two. This 2nd edition tastes stronger and I couldn't swallow any of the gross flavors. I remember booger and the barf being weird in the 1st edition but not unmanageable; in the 2nd edition after one bite I had to spit them out. I didn't try toothpaste or dog food in the 2nd edition, but the others were all very true to their name.
Seeing as this product is supposed to taste gross (well, the trick flavors) and taste like the flavors advertised, that's why I gave it 4 stars - lives up to its name. The other reviews are correct: you can't smell or see a difference - it's only when you bite into it that the true flavor is revealed. I subtracted one star because I wish they were only slightly gross but still edible, but maybe I am just sensitive to rotten eggs and baby wipes.
Unfortunately I didn't realize this listing was for a pack of TWENTY FOUR of the small boxes, so I have no idea what to do with all those! Maybe I can pawn some off in a white elephant Christmas gift or give them to small children. Yay for holidays and neglectful parents!
