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

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?
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 packaging was bland and the monkeys’ colors slightly washed out. Many of them had a distorted shape.
This was a straight flavor mystery without a contest or an obvious means of learning the “correct flavor.”
+ 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.
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.
Hilarious! Thanks for warning me in case I accidentally run into these.
Good thing they weren’t called “Taste No Evil”, as that may have been false advertising.
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
In absence of real knowledge, I’m going to have to assume that the green flavor is “purgatory.”
Anyone know where to buy these online? They ran out at my local 711 and never restocked
Sorry, I haven’t seen a pack since I wrote the review.
