Puccho Dragon Fruit and Muscat

Dragonfruit & Muscat Pucho

I've never had dragon fruit. I may have seen it before, but I really have no idea what it should taste like. This particular variety of Puccho was supposed to be a dragon fruit/muscat grape combo.

According to the side of the package, the green and white layers were muscat flavored, and the red gel bits that give Puccho it's famous texture were supposed to be dragon fruit flavored. In any case, the color combination was attractive.

It smelled like muscat grape with a hint of a strawberry type sweetness. The taste was definitely strongly muscat, and was fairly authentic with a nice tartness. I didn't taste much else, but as I mentioned, I don't know what dragon fruit should taste like.

The color combination was great, but the red gel candies that were supposed to be the dragon fruit really just brought texture. I did find them to be really sweet, but with something like this, I was expecting it. All in all, it was tasty, but not something I'd seek out again.

I've had that brand of chew before but never reviewed it because I didn't know what it was called. Now I know!

If only I had some way to get you to tell me what flavors they are too...

If you post pictures, I can do my best to help you out! Yeah, Hi-chew usually puts a big picture of the fruit on the package, but Puccho isn't always clear. Hi-chew tends to be more authentic in flavor, too...
