7-Eleven Mystery Monkeys [Review]

See no evil, hear no evil, taste no evil.

Location: at home

Date Played: June 24, 2018

Price: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

REA Reaction

We had a bag of 7-Eleven’s mystery-flavored monkey gummies at the Escape, Immerse, Explore: New Orleans tour… so a few of us tasted them, for science.

The three flavors ranged from joylessly benign to gross.

Who is this for?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Why play?

Story

7-Eleven issued a package of red, green, and blue gummies in the shape of  “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil monkeys.”

The packaging teed it up as a flavor mystery… so we attempted to solve it.

The package of 7-11 Mystery Monkeys gummi candies featuring "see no evil hear no evil speak no evil monkeys."

Setup

The packaging was bland and the monkeys’ colors slightly washed out. Many of them had a distorted shape.

Gameplay

This was a straight flavor mystery without a contest or an obvious means of learning the “correct flavor.”

Analysis

+ When the monkeys weren’t mangled, they were kind of cute. The “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil monkeys” aesthetic was charming.

– There’s no reason to put these in your mouth. The flavors ranged from neutral to gross.

Spoiler - Flavors

Our group’s consensus on the flavors:

Green – Purgatory (had essentially no flavor at all)

Blue – Blue Gatorade? (some kind of enjoyed, most hated)

Red – Child’s Robitussin (universally reviled)

Thank you to Drew Nelson for carrying these gummies to New Orleans just so we could have another mystery.

  1. The actual flavors are peach ring for red, pineapple gummybear for blue, and hell if I know green but disappointing the gummy flavors are just of other gummy products hahaha
