Jolly Rancher Caramel Apple Crunch 'n Chew

Place purchased: Walmart 

Price: $0.67

Number of reviewers: 

Appearance - 7.0

The Jolly Rancher Caramel Apple Crunch 'n Chew candies are individually wrapped within a single-serve size pouch. The hard candy exterior of the Jolly Rancher has a green apple stripe and a brown, caramel flavored stripe. The ratio between the green apple and caramel hard candy varies significantly between pieces. While the exterior differed from piece to piece, they all had the same amount of light brown, caramel flavored filling. 

Flavor and Taste - 6.0

The hard candy exterior has a good balance between tart green apple and sweet caramel flavors, though the flavor is dominantly whichever flavored stripe is directly against your tongue. The center has a light, very artificial tasting caramel flavor. 

C: Get both caramel and green apple, but something a little off with it. 
S: Sour green apple with a hint of caramel. 

Texture - 4.7

The exterior is a hard candy, like normal Jolly Ranchers. I found the exterior too thick to crunch into until it was in my mouth for few minutes. The "chewy" center is malleable, yet still very tough, similar to a Now and Later. I tried to crunch and chew one of the pieces and ended up spitting out the center because my jaw became tired and it didn't taste that great. 

C: Softer than a regular Jolly Rancher, but not soft and chewy. 
S: Inside isn't very chewy and it is really hard and sticks to my teeth. 

Aftertaste - 5.7

The aftertaste after eating the entire candy is mainly just sweetness. 

C: Green apple and creamy. 

Overall - 5.7

Overall, the exterior hard candy shell had a great mix of green apple and caramel flavors. However, the interior was just a dull, artificial caramel flavor and difficult to chew. If the filling had been softer, the Jolly Rancher Caramel Apple Crunch 'n Chew candy would have been much better.
