Chimes Ginger Chews--Mango
This is Day 12 of an extended New Products Week, and Day Three of Mangopalooza.
This is a non-TJ's branded product. Perhaps it's been for sale for a long time, but it appears to be new to Trader Joe's, brought in as part of what they're officially calling Mango Madness.
These little candies pack an astonishing punch. I have never been hit with such a strong wave of ginger. The mango is an afterthought, and you might not even notice it's there. It's definitely the harmony to the belted-out ginger melody. I ate three of them after opening the bag, but had to wait about five minutes between them, to give my mouth a break. I'm writing this about 30 minutes after the last one, and there's still a prominent ginger tingle going on. They're that potent.
Will I buy it again?
No. It's just too much for me. I'm glad I tried them once, to see what ginger can do when it's cranked up to 11. But frankly I experienced them more than I enjoyed them.
