    Oh my gosh, American Mike and Ike candies! Mike and Ike is a brand of fruit-flavored candies that were first introduced in 1940 by the company Just Born, Inc. They're a big hit in America so we got some and decided to see what our lovely Tryers thought of them!

      Zours are in no way sour but they are delicious.

      Also, fun fact: the Just Born factory is in Bethlehem, PA. We don't have much here but we do have that.

As mentioned in the video, they're wonderfully flavored and taste like actual fruit. Most other "fruit-flavored" candies I've tried are bland and all taste the same, even if they're supposed to be inspired by different fruits.

                                                                          • Richelle Johnson
