I caught the glare. I know I'm going to get when I tell you Mike and Ike have split up. Mike wants to pursue a music career and Ike wants to be an artist. The company is doing everything they can to keep them together. After all, who wants to break apart a great tasting candy like Mike and Ike? I know my teenage son would be heartbroken. He has loved Mike and Ike's since he was little. While I am a chocolate lover, my son has always preferred Mike and Ike's.
Since my son has always been a fan of Mike and Ike's candy, we jumped at the chance to review the original fruits. I liked the cherry and lemon flavors which surprised me since I usually don't like cherry or lemon candy. Neither was too sour, a plus for me since I like sweet more than sour. I liked the chewy centers. The orange doesn't take a lot like orange. In fact, few of them tasted like the fruits they were supposed to. The lime was my least favorite, weird as I like lime better than lemon. All of the flavors are sweet and not tangy like the real fruit.
My son likes all of the flavors and is definitely a much bigger fan than me. He hates sharing the red ones so it's not hard to figure out which are his favorite.
I love the theater size boxes. They are easy to pack around and take to the movies. I have also been giving them out instead of party bags at my children's birthday parties for several years. The kids love them much more than a bag full of trinkets and in the long run, it ends up being much cheaper. Sometimes I buy a variety of different theater box candy, but when I do, Mike and Ike's in any flavor are always the ones that go first. It seems my son isn't the only one who loves them.
