The pros: Trader Joe’s Bunny Gummy Tummies are similar to the Penguin variety sold throughout the year. While they look different, the concept is the same. These are a cross between a gummy and a gusher.
The cons: Most likely seasonal (but those flavors should be added to the line of gummy tummy flavors)
The verdict: For $1.99 you are getting a confection that is a hybrid between two better known products. This will remind you of a gummy bear (or other animal) and a Fruit Gushers. If you are unfamiliar with the Gushers candies, it’s got a candy gel in the middle around a fruit flavored outside. Thus, when you bite into them, they gush the gel. Like the Gummy Tummy Penguins, you might have a hard time figuring out what the shape is supposed to be. After you bite into one it won’t matter. Color wise, these are more opaque in their appearance and their “tummy” is harder to see. Nonetheless, you still have a tasty variety of candies in front of you that are well made. These seem to be more gummy than tummy though. In other words, there isn’t as much of the filling that you might be used to. The shapes here are all different and some don’t allow for much of that “tummy.” The gummies however, taste like the flavor in the middle which more than makes up for the “tummy.” If you tried the Gummy Tummy Penguins, those gummies were all uniform in their gummy flavor, but not the tummies. Trader Joe’s Bunny Gummy Tummies are lovely shades of pastel for the spring season and I’m sure these would make a great snack or Easter basket treat. I enjoyed them and I’d repurchase. If you enjoyed the original flavors, you’ll probably enjoy these. Just won’t wait to try these as they are likely seasonal.

Would I buy this again? Yes. I’m sure these are seasonal and that’s a shame. I enjoy Trader Joe’s Gummy Tummies Penguins so this was a nice change in flavors. I hope to pick up a few more bags before they disappear for the season.
