Ben, being the humorous chap he is, likes to refer to the local cheapo pizza shop that sells $5.00 larges as peddling "carnival pizza." What he means by this statement is that, while the pizza is edible enough, it's flavor and consistency are similar to what you would find at a booth in a traveling fair or freak show. The crust is as rubbery as the greasy cheese. I mean, come on, it costs $5. How good can it be? And I think this is the marketing angle that the makers of Tiger Eye Circus Treats are going with. Basically, they're saying "Look, you just spent $2 on a 96 piece bag of CIRCUS TREATS! At Pic-N-Save! How good can these be?!?" And indeed, this sums up our personal experience. Tiger Eyes are largish, multicolored balls of... actually, we're not sure. Some contend that Tiger Eyes are very hard gum balls, while others, myself included, believe that they are "edible" candy. Regardless, the Tiger Eye experience is a unique one, indeed. After inserting the Tiger Eye into your mouth, you immediately realize that, if this indeed a gum, it is incredibly stale. This could be attributed to the fact that they were shipped all the way from Egypt. Yes, Egypt. Ben believes that they were actually a gift to dead pharohs, to aid them on their journey to the afterlife. He claims that they were stolen from the tombs, and carry a curse. After the case of dysentary that seemed to follow their consumption, I just may agree.
Anyway, once you have broken the rock-hard outer layer and begin to chew the inner contents, you may be inclined to think, "Hey, this isn't THAT bad!" Then you'll notice the thick, white film coating the inside of your mouth. Where did it come from? Was it inside the Eye? Is it foam buildup from the hard candy shell? Is it your immune system rejecting the treat? You'll spit out a sample of the foam, and wonder at it's gushiness. You'll start to think about the contents of the film/foam mixture, and in rapidly building disgust, will quickly eject the Tiger Eye from your mouth and onto the ground, regardless of where you are standing.
And THAT is the Tiger Eye experience.
