See no evil, hear no evil, taste no evil.
Location: at home
Date Played: June 24, 2018
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.
