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!
