The video version of my notes for CAP SL Candied Watermelon, CAP SL Tropical Fruit Punch, CAP SL Crunchy Frosted Cookie, and CAP Green Apple Hard Candy.
First, props to Capella. Lean into the candy. I dig it. Most watermelon flavors have some degree of candy to them already, but I think this is a different kind of candy watermelon. The more common version is probably a Jolly Rancher, or hard candy type watermelon. Sweet, flat, and red in general, they don’t really attempt any simulacrum of a rind note. You run into the occasional tarter take, like Purilum Watermelon, but in general it’s kind of a hegemony of artificial watermelon. This bucks that, largely. Lest we bury the lede, this tastes like Watermelon Bubblicious.
