Like a lot of people who grew up in the the late 80's and early 90's, Mamba Fruit Chews were a childhood favorite.  However, when a friend recently referred to Mamabs as "the best candy ever", I had to set her straight

To even suggest that Mambas are the greatest candy of all time is heresy. Admittedly, Mambas are tasty, but we all know that Starburst runs the fruit chew game.  Sure, there are 16 fruit chews in every pack of Mambas, compared to only 12 in a pack of Starburst.  But there's more flavor in one Starburst than that entire pack of Mambas.

Every Starburst is like a volcano exploding with flavor inside of your mouth. And lemon Starburst are better than kisses from a puppy. Luckily for me, lemon isn't the most popular flavor, which allows me to trade my strawberry Starburst for extra lemons.  And why anyone would purchase the "tropical" flavored Starburst, or worse yet, "Berries n Creme" or "Very Berry" is beyond me.  You gotta stick with the original.

Here's the bottom line:  Anyone who would dare to suggest that Mambas are superior to Starburst needs to have their head examined.  Starbust fruit chews are the kings of candy.  You can disagree with me, but you'll be wrong.
