Albanese - The world's best gummies and more!
When I hear the name Albanese my mind used to immediately go to "the world's best gummies". Well that was before I realized they are so much more than just the world's best gummies (in my humble opinion that is). They also have a wide selection of other candies and treats. Yes I still think of them as the best for gummies, but now I also think of them as a place to shop for other treats too.
Take for instance their Bunny Tracks and Easter Peanut Lover’s Mixes, they have a little bit of candy mixed in with delicious nuts. I'm one that likes the specialty nuts that have the extra flavor to them so I was pretty excited to receive these two mixes to try out. I wasn't big on mixing the nuts and candy corn in my mouth at the same time, but they were pretty good with the chocolate gems. But hey who doesn't like candy corn all by itself right? So really it was like two treats in one for me. My kids and husband on the other hand just popped it all in at once. So I guess it's all a matter of taste buds.
Bunny Tracks Mix: Spanish Peanuts, Honey Roasted Peanuts & Easter Candy Corn.
Easter Peanut Lover’s Mix: Butter Toffee Peanuts, Blanched Roasted & Salted Peanuts, Honey Roasted Peanuts, Light Pink, Lavender, Pastel Green & Turquoise Chocolate Gems.
I also received an assortment of their Gummi Albunnies and Spring Gummi Bears. This was what came to my mind. I love their gummies, no matter the shape, size or flavor! They have just the right amount of sweet goodness in every bite, and they don't stick to my teeth like other brands of gummies. The spring mix is a nice assortment that makes me think about visiting a tropical island..ahh sunshine!
Gummi Albunnies: Mango, Strawberry, Blue Raspberry, Green Apple, Cherry, and Grape.
Spring Gummi Bears: Pink Grapefruit, Mango, Watermelon, and Pineapple.
Up for trying something a little different than your everyday gummies? Then hop on over and try out their Eggstravagant Gummies and Sherbet Bears. (And yes I took the opportunity to make an Easter funny.) These were both something I had never tried before so I was really excited to get them. The Eggstravagant Gummies don't really have a single flavor taste to them but man are they good. Now I'm just hoping the use this flavor combination for other special holiday shapes. I love fruit flavored candy so these will probably always be one of my favorites. The Sherbet Bears were great too, they reminded me of a creamsicle or those cream flavored hard candies you can get.
Eggstravagant Gummies: Feature soft spring hues and bold fruit flavor. (These gummies are only available for a short time.)
Sherbet Bears: Orange, Lime, and Strawberry sherbet.
I honestly don't think you can go wrong when it comes to treats from Albanese. They have such a wide selection there's really something for everyone's taste bud preference. Heck they even have fun gummy bear themed gifts if you know someone that's a gummy bear enthusiast!
Plus if you're lucky like me and only live about an hour from their factory you can stop in for fresh gummy treats when you're passing through traveling like we did over spring break! We even got to see the Easter Bunny on our visit. Plus the entire store was filled with lots of Easter baskets and bunny themed treats. Made shopping for my kids super easy this year because they both picked their own pre-filled basket.
