Welcome to my new web site, Muncha Libre.
Right here, we talk about wrestling-related meals and wrestling-related meals
…I’m being knowledgeable by my Google
search that the identify Muncha Libre seems to be taken by a line of
luchador-themed cookie cutters, that are cute. I suppose it’s again
to ol’ Junk Meals Betty.
The inspiration for this sudden change
in focus comes from these completely darling Nerds ¡Lucha Grande!,
which have apparently been round since 2017. And, it appears, the
Web hasn’t fairly caught as much as them both. Not a number of opinions
on the market.
And what a disgrace, as a result of take a look at these
lovely bins. I’ve by no means seen such a narrative unfold on a field of
sweet earlier than. Stories, I
ought to say. Two bins, 4 new flavors, and 4 distinctive luchador
Nerds. I like all of them.
First we’ve Lima
Intensa vs. Piña Furiosa. I like that the character of the Nerds
mascots makes them seem like all of them grabbed some socks from Nana’s
winter drawer to make use of as masks, however on the identical time, I need to
recognize the truth that whoever designed this field really took the
time to not solely give the Nerds necks, but additionally imagined what a lucha
masks would seem like round them. Incredible.
Lima’s sticking to a extra generic all-green look, however I like Piña for each the lightning bolt design and the yellow/inexperienced combo, actually repping the colours of the pineapple. Why didn’t they name her Piña Eléctrica?
Piña might win the spherical for finest lucha
look, however I’ve gotta give it to Lima for the flavour. Purely a
private desire. Piña Furiosa is ok as a consultant of
pineapple sweet. I simply don’t like that taste. Think about the pineapple
Lifesaver within the unique fruit roll; these Nerds style precisely like
that. Come to think about it, I haven’t seen a roll of fruity Lifesavers
in eternally. Simply think about a
easy pineapple sweet.
Lime is identical
method – consider your favourite lime-flavored sweet and also you’re 99%
there. In case you’re me, bear in mind the nice occasions when inexperienced Skittles have been
lime- and never inexperienced apple-flavored. Ah, sure, there we go.
Guava vs. Mango
Our second match-up is between Guayaba Solitaria and El Mango Fuego.
Clearly, this match is the principle attraction. We’ve received two luchas
with fire-themed masks, however they’ve taken it in several instructions.
EMF will get factors for sticking with flame-related colours, however take a look at
the sew work on Guayaba! So detailed! The mix of neon pink
with inexperienced jogs my memory of an unreadable geocities web site, however I can’t
deny that it actually makes the masks particulars pop. These jagged
eyebrows! You may not be solitaria eternally, Guayaba. You’ve pinned
my coronary heart.
Guava is a barely extra unique taste than lime or pineapple, however
once more, the Nerds style is fairly easy. I may go into
some flowery language about it, nevertheless it tastes like guava sweet.
Shiny and tropical.
Name me loopy, however
I’m guessing that any curiosity on this sweet lies principally in Mango
Chile. (And the luchadors, in fact.) The mango taste is
front-and-center, once more being precisely as marketed. The chile half
was fairly refined for spicy sweet – you’re not enduring an Atomic
There’s additionally no
distinct taste to the spice;
it’s not cinnamon and even what I’d name “chile”, only a little bit of a
warmth zing as an aftertaste. Scorching sweet isn’t actually for me, however I
assume it’s a enjoyable addition that doesn’t overwhelm the mango taste.
Willy Wonka’s ¡Lucha Grande! Nerds are half of a bigger line of Wonka sweet impressed by “Spanish sweet retailer” flavors. There’s Guava and Pineapple Laffy Taffy, Pineapple, Mango Lime, and Cucumber Watermelon Pixy Stix, and people final two additionally present up as Enjoyable Dip flavors with Lime- and Tamarind-flavored dipping sticks. Neat!
Besides apparently this technique didn’t
go so nice, because the press launch factors in direction of a now defunct
web site the place you can see the ¡Lucha Grande! Nerds in comedian strips
that I now desperately need to discover and make enjoyable of.
That’s proper, between the time I
acquired these Nerds and the time I reviewed them, the whole advert
marketing campaign for this line of candies went extinct. Hear, the sweet was
a little bit expired once I reviewed it, however not that
expired. Have a little bit religion, Wonka! Give these flavors one other
As for our little leftist nook (actual identify tbd, presumably by no means), you don’t must go far on this one. Willy Wonka is owned by Nestle, an organization that steals water. I gained’t even hyperlink you to a selected article; simply search for your self.
