A Christmas miracle!

Surprise! I finally found a mystery flavor candy that was more than vaguely edible.
I can’t see myself buying it again because it’s not really my type of candy (too corn syrupy), but it was legitimately enjoyable.
(Lisa disagrees that it was at all enjoyable, but that’s not really the product’s fault. For more on this difference of opinions, see the spoiler box below.)
If you like candy canes and sucking candy, this is a good option. It comes also with totes adorb stickers, if that’s your sort of thing.
If I’m going to be honest, however, these mystery products are more fun when they are terrible.
Who is this for?
- People with a sweet tooth
- Kawaii aficionados
It actually tasted good.
I haven’t the slightest clue what the story is behind this product.
Apparently the characters are from L.O.L. Surprise. I don’t really know what that is and I wasn’t moved to do further research.
The oversized pink and blue candy cane measured 7 inches in length and 2/3 of an inch in diameter.
The product came packaged within pink and blue packaging with a cute, big-eyed cartoon girl on its face. Within were 4 stickers of similar L.O.L. Surprise characters.
It’s a candy cane; you suck on it… or bite it, if you have no patience.
Then you guess the flavor.
➕ This actually tasted like candy… and not punishment. By default it was the best mystery flavor product that we’ve consumed to date.
🍌 I think its supposed to be banana. That said, the corn syrup is strong with this one. Lisa hates all banana-flavored candies. She confirmed that the flavor was absolutely banana… which, for her, rendered this product absolutely inedible. Thus the difference of opinion in this review.
➕ The stickers looked cute.
➖ The backing on the stickers was pretty mediocre.
Buy your copy of L.O.L. Surprise’s Mystery Flavor Candy Cane, and tell them that the Room Escape Artist sent you.

I love LOL!!! I have unboxed then a couple of times as AvaVentz. 😂 They are so cute!!!
What are they?
LOL dolls were one of the ‘it’ toys of Christmas 2017 comprising a ‘collectible’ doll with huge eyes and accessories in many many layers of packaging – hence the surprise. The dolls would cry, pee, or change colour when chilled and were overpriced and seemingly addictive to young girls. They also came with a small rebus relating to the dolls name.
