For those participating in the dining plan, the white chocolate covered Simba crisp rice treats, lollipops, animal crackers, gummy spiders, gummy centipedes, and candy rocks are all available for a snack credit.
Additional Lion King themed treats include zebra striped popcorn and chocolate alligators!
I decided to try out the candy rocks. Although they were displayed next to the gummy spiders and centipedes, it was unclear what the rocks were. I was expecting them to be a candy coated malted milk ball or chocolate treat based on the picture.
However, this is where cute packaging betrayed me and I neglected to read the ingredients list (beyond sugar). The candy rocks were, in fact, big jelly beans. I enjoy jelly beans. However, there's a reason why spice flavored jelly beans and fruit flavored ones are usually sold separately. The first "rock" that I tried was a pretty light blue color....wintergreen flavor (which I promptly disposed of). The second one was yellow...banana flavor. Other flavors include cherry, licorice, grape, and cinnamon, I THINK. I didn't get very far into trying the flavors because my taste buds were overwhelmed from the first lick of wintergreen.
Although this is a cute snack, it would be nice to have a flavor guide list on the package. One bite of wintergreen to start ruined my anticipated sweet experience. I would also venture to say that these flavors are not exactly "kid friendly." If you would like a fun tasting adventure, this is the treat for you. Proceed at your own risk!
