Candy A to Z: Now and Later

February 23, 2018 1 Comment

We love candies that offer something for everyone, and that's exactly what you get with Now and Later. Anybody could find a favorite (or two) among Now and Later's eleven original flavors, but why stop there? Now and Later's Chewy lineup reinvents most of the originals with a softer chew and adds Pink Lemonade to the mix, just for fun.Talk about variety! 

Now and Later SplitsStill not impressed? Good, because we've got two more gnarly varieties to tell you about! Now and Later Extreme Sours put a tongue-biting twist on three of their most popular flavors to create Sour Apple, Sour Cherry, and Sour Watermelon chews, while Now and Later Splits combine two great tastes in one long-lasting square. If you aren't impressed by now, you're gonna have to start your own candy company!

Now and Later Extreme SourJimmy Sweet Tooth says: I haven't had Now and Laters since elementary school, and I'm not sure how, but I think they're even better than I remember! I grabbed two bars, a Tropical Punch and a Blue Raspberry, because I didn't want to base my review on just one flavor. That was the right move, because they were both awesome! And I think they're on to something with the "Splits" concept. Combining flavors makes them even more fun.
