Twizzlers Caramel Apple Filled Twists

Twizzlers Caramel Apple Filled Twists are one of the new candies being released this Halloween season. This new flavor is only available in snack size portions in large (10.29 oz) bags. 

Place purchased: Walgreen's

Price: $2.99

Number of reviewers: 4

Appearance - 4.8

Each packet contains two, 2.25" long Twizzlers. The bold green, apple flavored licorice is filled with light brown, caramel flavored filling. The filling looks dull and muted in comparison to the vibrant green licorice. 

C: I like that the Twizzler is filled with the caramel. 
E: VERY green, alarmingly so. 
E2: The brownish caramel squirting out of the ends is unappealing. 

Flavor and Taste - 5.3

The licorice has a standard, artificial green apple flavor, without any sourness. The caramel filling also tastes artificial, which actually works well in this application. While the pairing of the green apple and caramel flavors are perfectly balanced and compliment each other, they are both incredibly sweet. The flavor combination is reminiscent of the Halloween staple Caramel Apple Pops.  

C: The caramel flavor is nice, not too sweet. The apple is a little off, but not too bad.
E: Caramel and apple flavors are actually well-balanced. Both quite fake though.
E2: Reminds me of the caramel apple pops. Apple flavor isn't as sour as I would imagine based on the bright green flavor. 

Texture - 4.8

The licorice is chewy, while the filling is soft and unpleasantly grainy. 

C: Good texture, the caramel is a little grainy though.
E: Twizzler itself has appropriate texture, filling is grainy. 
E2: Caramel is grainy. 

Aftertaste - 4.5

The aftertaste is predominately just sweetness. Though, the apple and caramel flavors faintly linger. 

E: Sugary, artificial green apple. 
E2: Honestly not much. 

Overall - 4.9

The Twizzlers are not bad, but they are not great either. While the flavors are very artificial, the do work well together. Though, the grainy texture and intense sweetness are unforgivable. While I am not a huge fan of the Caramel Apple Twizzlers, I would expect kids to enjoy receiving them on Halloween. They are much more exciting than original cherry Twizzlers. 

E: Pretty meh. 
E2: Meh, not super impressed.
