To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I originally started purchasing these packets because I severely needed to up my water intake and did not want to tire myself of the Apple Flavor, (which is hands down the best!)
I was not at all taken aback by the price because I am a firm believer in anything that will leave me feeling a bit healthier. I have a disability and therefore can't indulge in soda as often as I used to due to limited mobility issues.
But I digress...
When I received these in the mail, I was amped up to try a new flavor given that I also really love Jolly Rancher candy so you can imagine my surprise when I opened the package (which was priced somewhere in the $16 range at the time) and found not the 6 boxes, as advertised, but instead found only one box.
Now, I won't deny that Amazon tried to rectify the situation as best they could, by immediately offering to send me a replacement at no cost to me, BUT... when the same error happened a second time and all they offered was my money back because they feared it would "happen again" I was definitely shocked that the advertisement of the 6 boxes was not altered to the amount that future buys would more than likely receive. ONE box of Blue Raspberry with no true explanation as to what happened to the other five.
I reordered the blue raspberry flavor because I loved the tart flavor, but the “new”box came with a “new” flavor. The flavor is more sweet and taste flowery to me...it’s not bad but not what I crave. If anyone has any old stock hanging around (the blue box, not the yellow box)...hook me up!
I very much prefer the Kool-Aid Sour Apple packets, but they are like gold and way too expensive. The flavor of Jolly Rancher Green Apple packets is sweet, and just not what I prefer. However, in the absence of Kool-Aid Sour Apple at a reasonable cost, Jolly Rancher Green Apple is what I buy. I don't hate it!
I add these to my 16 oz. Bottle waters and they taste awesome, has helped me cut down on sodas, my only gripe is they have over doubled in cost over the ladt 6 months. I used to by each case or box of 12 x 6 packets. I got hooked on them when my wife used to get them from 99 cent stores. Then found them on Amazon for $10.59 a case which was cheaper than the $12 a case from 99 cent stores
