The Laidback Gourmet: Black Forest Juicy Oozers Gummi Skulls

Its time once again for a brand new Laidback Gourmet. It’s Mid-October. You know what that means, right? Halloween is RIGHT around the corner! Is there a better time to be a reviewer of crap you find at your local supermarket and drug stores? I think not. So let’s get the party of Samhain started with something I just found at the local store:

Juicy Oozers Gummi Skulls made by Black Forrest. Black Forrest, as far as I know, are gummi artisans who work exclusively in the medium of Gummi. And these things are real works of art, even more so than the Gummi Venis De Milo!

I mean, just look at it! A bone white skull with a hint of red poking through, giving you a little sneak preview of the bloody surprise waiting for you. You see, that’s the gimmick to these candies, they are filled with a juicy red ooze in the center so they bleed as you eat them.

Gruesome… but I like it. Halloween is suppose to have a bit of an ‘edge’ to it. Well, enough eviscerating my food, let’s give them a try.

*Chewy chewy chewy*

Not bad! Not bad at all. They’re cherry flavored and the ooze inside gives an extra burst of cherry. They kind of remind me of Gushers. I could see how having a burst of liquid coming out of your gummi be a turn off for some, but I think these are pretty good.

Nice bright flavor, fun novelty factor, I’m giving these high marks, 8/10. I would definately recommend these.

Well that concludes another edition of the Laidback Gourmet. Thank you for reading and please feel free to email me thoughts, suggestions, or to simply lavish thy Halloween tidings upon me here at So until next time, this is Ed DiFolco, your Laidback Gourmet thinking how only one thing is bothering me.

I poured out a whole bunch of them onto the plate, but as I look at the pile of bloody skulls, something is making me a bit unnerved. Something is really bothering me, but I can’t quite put my finger on it…

HOLY CRAP!!! We’re reviewing on an old Indian Burial Ground!!!! RUN!!!!!!!
