Over the festive period I am often on the look out for novelty gifts to use as little extra presents and fun stocking fillers, and it was then that I came across this Red Mushroom Candy Tin in the shape of the character from the popular Mario game.
Having spent much of my childhood playing Mario on various games consoles, this product immediately caught my eye, and I purchased it for someone that I knew was a fan of the games.
The tin is nice and small, and the mushroom’s bright red head pops off to reveal a number of pale pink sweets inside. The sweets certainly smell beautiful, you can smell the cherry when you open it, which makes you instantly want to try the candy! The sweets are also shaped like little mushrooms, to match the tin, so they look really sweet all tucked up within the tin.
The sweets themselves are cherry sours, which offer a really good balance of sweet and sour, so they aren’t unpleasant and difficult to take like many sour sweets can be!
As well as giving a tin as a present, I bought one for myself to keep in my handbag, which is perfect when I just want a little sweet treat in a fun container!
