Cherry Cola Twizzlers

Twizzlers Cola & Cherry Twists were a limited edition product back in 2006. Now they have returned as Pull 'n' Peel Twizzlers.

Place purchased: Target 

Price: $2.49

Number of reviewers: 3

Appearance - 7.3

Each package of Cherry Cola Pull 'n' Peel Twizzlers contains 18 pieces, each 9.5 inches long. The pieces have six red, cherry flavored strands and three brown, cola flavored strands.

J: I wish the colors were more even.

Flavor and Taste - 6.0

The red strands have a strong medicinal cherry flavor, while the brown strands have a faint effervescent cola flavor. Together, it tastes like a slightly effervescent cherry Twizzler. The cherry flavor dominates the cola. 

J: Great flavor, but cherry dominates cola. I wish it was more cola.
S: Kind of tastes a little like cough syrup.

Texture - 7.3

The Cherry Cola Twizzlers are chewy and stick to your teeth like normal Twizzlers. There is a slight effervescent and tingling effect from the cola strands.

S: Like normal Twizzlers. 

Aftertaste - 7.3

The aftertaste is mostly of medicinal cherry with a hint of cola flavor. 

J: I get more cola in the aftertaste.

Overall - 6.7

Overall, the Cherry Cola Twizzlers taste too much of cherry and not enough like cola. I tried changing the ratio of cherry to cola strands and found that 1:8 cherry:cola tastes like a balanced cherry cola in comparison to the given ratio of 6:3 cherry:cola strands. 

J: Good, but more cola!

  1. Instead of making the ratio of cola to cherry 3:6 they should make it 4:5 or 5:4 (I think 5:4 is better because I like cola)
