On the sidebar, there's a box that lists the ratings I've used for reviews on Salmiyuck. And since they're used to describe different kinds of salmiac, obviously they're all synonymous with "bad". But after experiencing Fazer's Missä X, the Salmiyuck rating scale will be broken forever.
The word "experience" truly does describe what eating Missä X is like. It's more than tasty, more than delicious, it was... delightful. In fact, so much so that I had to carefully review the packaging to make sure that Missä X was, in fact, salmiac.
Missä X's texture is much like other jelly-based salmiac and, like many of the mixes, each color is a different flavor. The coating is most certainly a mix of sugar and salt - actually, it's the perfect mix. There's even a bit of sour (or maybe it was just the salt), that seemed to tie everything together.
This high opinion isn't just my own - I was amongst friends when I opened the Missä X, and they too were delighted. "This stuff is incredible," one friend said, "and they're even better when you combine the different pieces!"
"I'd absolutely buy this," another said, "Finland should totally open a store in America. Or at least, sell this at movie theaters."
There was one oddity with the Missä X, and that was the black pieces. Why such awful-tasting bits would be included in such a bag of wonder was beyond any of us, but they were easily set-aside to be discarded. After a few short minutes, this is all that remained of the Missä X:
Even with the inedible black pieces, the Missä X earns the rating-system-breaking rating of absolutely delightful.
