Katjes Saure Johannisbeeren- Sour Red Currant Gummy Candy

German Red Currant candyWe picked these up at World Market for $2.29. If you’ve never been to World Market, it’s kind of hard to describe. They’re a big store sell stuff from around the world. Well, I guess it wasn’t too hard to describe after all. They stock things from rugs to packaged foods to vases to toys. It’s a fun place to waste some time in. Or pick up candy with little English on the package!

I’ve never tasted currants before but I have seen them while watching food network. Not sure what they actually taste like but surely didn’t expect to find candy that’s currant influenced. Here’s what good ole wiki has to say about redcurrants:

Redcurrant fruit is slightly more sour than its relative the blackcurrant, and is cultivated mainly for jams and cooked dishes, rather than for eating raw. For example, in Scandinavia it is often used in fruit soups and summer puddings, and in Germany it is also used in combination with custard or meringue as a filling for tarts.

And apparently as German gummy candy! They have a VERY strong flavor to them. The taste is kind of like a sour artificial raspberry flavor on steroids. There’s almost a medicine-y taste to it. Or maybe a fruit rollup rejected flavor. And yet, they’re oddly addictive. At least once I got past how strong the flavor was. It’s a pretty different flavor than we have here in the states.

So next time you have a craving for artificially flavored sour cough syrup fruit rollups(and you know you will) give these Katjes Sour Red Currant Gummies a shot!

They get a 3 out of 5 awesomenesses!
