As the title says, these wasabi gumballs were reaaally gross tasting. I tried one and only got through 5 or 6 chews before I had to spit it out.
I got them as a stocking stuffer for Xmas and it was fun receiving them and I was excited to try them as I like trying unusual foods, etc. It was also fun getting my fiance to try one, knowing how gross they were and knowing that he had an even lower tolerance for gross tastes, hahah. After that I threw the rest out because I knew no one would eat them.
So I agree with the previous reviewers who say this is great for a gag gift, but bad if you are seriously looking to buy for gum to chew.

I ordered these for my husband and little boy. It was lots of fun to see the look on their faces when they bit into the gum. Not your go to gum to chew but definitely a party fun favorite.
My boyfriend LOVES wasabi but when I got these gumballs for him as a surprise he was compelled to spit it out because it tasted so bad. Would not buy again unless for a prank joke.

I don’t know why people say it’s a gag gift… it tastes great and I’m not joking! It tastes like wasabi and the flavor lasts for a long time, it’s got a spicy kick, not a huge kick like the real thing.

I bought these gumballs for my sister as a gag gift. we love sushi and wasabi but these did not taste like wasabi! They were gross! But it was still really funny to buy her wasabi gumballs. Wouldnt have changed it but would have been nice if they actually tasted like wasabi. Shipped on time and in perfect condition.
They aren’t as spicy as I was expecting. It is VERY clearly a wasabi flavor, but without the sinus-clearing effect. The sweet back-taste is disconcerting in a way…very out-of-place and doesn’t especially go well with the wasabi. As you chew, there are spicy flare-ups, but nothing like I expected. Had to spit it out because of the sweet, not the spice.
Side note: the tin claims “22 pieces”, mine only had 19. not sure if that was just an anomaly or not, but in looking in the tin, I’m not entirely sure 22 would even fit.
Got this as a gag gift for my son, and he plans to use it that way on his friends. Don’t buy it for the taste! As a gag, pretty fun.
