The Simpsons Tic Tac - Bart Simpson Edition (PoundLand) By @Cinabar

As I said previously there are some interesting items for Foodstuff Finds found in PoundLand, and this one certainly hit the mark. These are new a Tic Tac flavour in honour of Bart Simpson, and they are bubblegum!
I loved the packaging on the these sweets, they have Bart Simpsons’ head and a purple pack top, they stood out on the shelf. Each Tic Tac has been printed with an image of Bart Simpson which is sweet (pun intended).

I gave one a try and found them to have a weird but pleasant taste. They do taste like bubblegum, they are sweet and they have that almost berry like flavour, but then something else kicks in. It isn’t quite mint, more like menthol, and it adds a cooling refreshing taste to the end of the sweet. This is not unpleasant, but it is just a little unexpected with the bubblegum, as it stops the flavour being purely that. The sweets are still refreshing, which I guess is their purpose. I think these new Bart Simpson Edition Tic Tac sweets have good novelty value, an interesting taste, but I think the packaging and Simpsons theming is the best part. I will happily finish off the rest of the pack, but it won’t be something I’ll be rushing out to buy again.
