What is it?
It’s Trolli Sour Brite candy in the shape of James Harden’s Adidas shoe. To be honest, I never noticed his shoes because I can’t stop looking at his beard and fall-away 3-point shot. But a quick glance at the Adidas website shows that the gummies do look like his shoe. There are three flavors available: lime-raspberry (green and purple), lemon-berry punch (yellow and purple), and strawberry-blackberry (red and a color that’s not black, teal).
How is it?
I happily ate through the entire bag, but the flavor combinations aren’t memorable and they’re noticeably less sour and flavorful than Trolli’s Sour Brite Crawlers. While the flavors aren’t as bold, I could determine which flavors are which in a blind taste test. Not bragging, just saying. I can’t pick a favorite flavor because they’re all equally pleasant and unimpressive. Lemon-berry punch is a little floral, lime-raspberry has an initial weirdness to it before it settles into a decent fruity flavor, and I have no complaints or grand praise for strawberry-blackberry.
Is there anything else I need to know?
I want to get an icing pen so I can draw the three Adidas lines on every shoe. Also, it’s hard to notice, but there are left and right gummi shoes. According to Trolli, the candy comes in color combinations you might find on actual basketball shoes. There are about 20 pieces per bag, or 10 pairs, so I guess if you ever want to open a Foot Locker for Sour Patch Kids, you can do so with these.
Trolli James Harden Collector Edition Sour Brite Sneaks are cool to look at, but I can’t say I’m impressed with their flavor. Go get a bag of Sour Brite Crawlers instead.
