The zaftig piece resembles a cough drop more so than a candy, however the cheery cherry flavor is full of appropriate sweetness and fruity bliss. But it only takes a few moments on the tongue before your mouth is fizzing, a wonderfully unexpected treat not unlike Zotz that brings the taste from good to great. Unfortunately you end up chewing the candy during the sensational sensation explosion, and sooner than later your mouth is empty. There is an affable aftertaste, however it is more of a teasing reminder of what you should have taken you time eating. Overall, after the wreck that was Double Kick Candy, this proves that energy candies do not have to be bitter.
Although B vitamins and ginseng are well represented, there is a blunt absence of caffeine and some of the other usual suspects; a single piece offers as much energy as a sole sip of decaf coffee would! So lamentably, Kabang Cherry emphasizes the candy over the energy.
