Welcome to my new website, Muncha Libre.
Right here, we talk about wrestling-related meals and wrestling-related meals
…I’m being knowledgeable by my Google
search that the title Muncha Libre seems to be taken by a line of
luchador-themed cookie cutters, that are lovely. 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
stunning containers. I’ve by no means seen such a narrative unfold on a field of
sweet earlier than. Stories, I
ought to say. Two containers, 4 new flavors, and 4 distinctive luchador
Nerds. I really like all of them.
First we have now Lima
Intensa vs. Piña Furiosa. I really like that the character of the Nerds
mascots makes them appear to be 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 in addition imagined what a lucha
masks would appear to be round them. Unbelievable.
Lima’s sticking to a extra generic all-green look, however I love 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 choice. 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 consider it, I haven’t seen a roll of fruity Lifesavers
in eternally. Simply think about a
easy pineapple sweet.
Lime is identical
manner – consider your favourite lime-flavored sweet and also you’re 99%
there. If you happen to’re me, bear in mind the nice instances 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 obtained 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 mixture 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 won’t 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, however it tastes like guava sweet.
Brilliant and tropical.
Name me loopy, however
I’m guessing that any curiosity on this sweet lies largely in Mango
Chile. (And the luchadors, after all.) The mango taste is
front-and-center, once more being precisely as marketed. The chile half
was fairly delicate 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. Sizzling 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 could possibly 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, your complete advert
marketing campaign for this line of candies went extinct. Pay attention, the sweet was
just a little expired once I reviewed it, however not that
expired. Have just a little religion, Wonka! Give these flavors one other
As for our little leftist nook (actual title tbd, probably by no means), you don’t should 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.
