Tart n Tinys candy review with photos

Tart n Tinys candy review with photos and giveaway

The original Tart n Tinys were a super popular '80s candy that were discontinued in the late '80s, and now thanks to Leaf Brand, a fan favorite is back! 

The new Tart n Tinys are exactly like you remember them in the '80s with the addition of a new blue raspberry. Tart n Tinys are small pellet shaped candy with a crunchy and chalky texture similar to sweet tarts, bottle caps and smarties. 

For this candy, the name says it all! The bigger the handful the more intense the tartness. The size is about that of a pea, the shape is more cylindrical than spherical.

The five original flavors (cherry,orange,grape,lime and lemon) are back. Leaf Brands kicked it up a gear and introduced blue raspberry to the already stellar line up. I may be a tad bit biased of this candy because of the nostalgia involved but I'm going to have to grade these a ten out of ten because the flavor is right up there with the other leaders in the fruit flavored candy world. 

If you would like to buy some Tart n Tinys they are available on our website.
To celebrate the re-release of Tart-N-Tinys we will be giving away 1 pack of this awesome candy to 10 different people. Enter to win!

About The Wild Robot!

The Wild Robot was started a few years ago with an idea that we would one day like to have our very own retro style candy store. Currently we are about as small as a small business can get,but we aim to change that ASAP. 

In 2011 we were off to the races. We scraped together $1000 dollars to buy our very first wholesale order. Since then we have taken every single penny and reinvested it back into our business, buying inventory,shelving,computer equipment,internet fees and well, everything else that makes the robot run. So far we haven't paid ourselves a dime while all along hoping to become large enough to make this a long time, full time gig. Our first goal is to have enough money so that Kari can be our first full time employee, then we'll really be on a roll!

Who's Kari? Oh yeah, Let me introduce you to The Wild Robot family. I'm Mark and Kari is my wife. We are proud parents of an awesome little girl named Macie Jane aka(Super Mace,Speedy Jane or Jany). The last member of The Wild Robot Family is my high school friend Chad. Chad and I go way back and he has some great ideas! We all bring our own interesting and sometimes unusual personalities to the business, but together we are The Wild Robot!

Thanks for taking the time to read this and support us however you can! You will never know just how much we appreciate it!

Here is a quick look at who we are and some of our influences on the business now and future.
Mark loves
 Video Games(retro arcade),
(specifically every type of candy
 on earth…
almost!) Tin Signs,
comic books and collectibles.
Chad loves
 Music, Cool posters and art,
 Action figures in weird 
places and gummy bears 
(Don’t ask!)


Kari is a pop culture magnet who
 has a taste for great ice cream
and really provides that
much needed
woman intuition.
Macie is the best! She helps out
whenever she gets a chance and
she keeps everything in the
 perspective of  a thoughtful and
 care free awesome child!
She likes her candy almost
as much as her daddy Mark!
