If it wasn't for the internet, you probably wouldn't know about the tasty snack that is jelly fruit candy. Like the Carpool Karaoke microphone and Squishmallows, they're another viral sensation that started on a store's shelves and are now in trendy TikTok videos. You may be thinking, "Haven't jelly fruit candy TikToks been around for a while?"
Well, yes. Jaden Sprinz discovered jelly fruit candy (aka TikTok candy) at a 99-cent store in Dec. 2019, according to a Feb. 2020 article from Food & Wine. He bought and used them to show his fan base that his vampire-like teeth are legit. What he likely didn't expect was that everyone would rush to find their own bag of bursting candy — even if it meant buying it on Ebay at a much more expensive price. From there, it turned into a TikTok challenge called "Hit or Miss," where a user bites into a pineapple or grape-shaped treat to either have the juices hit their mouth or totally splatter on the floor.
Flash forward to 2021, and jelly fruit candy TikToks are still "hitting" our #ForYou pages on TikTok, and some of the best compilations to watch. Whether users have tried the challenge before or are just getting their hands on jelly fruit candy, which is now available to shop at Walmart or on Amazon, it's always exciting to see what their outcome will be. Here are some of the best jelly fruit candy TikToks on the Internet right now.
Have you tried putting the jelly fruit TikTok candy in the freezer before you bite into them? This video gives you a glimpse as to what you can expect if you do. @therealqtube puts one of the candies in the freezer for 24 hours to find that it's impossible to bite into. The best part? His reaction at the end.
Look, playing "Hit or Miss" is always a good and thrilling time. But @austinsprinz is playing a new game on TikTok with these candies called "Jellyfruit Ruler." Essentially, you roll one of the jelly fruit TikTok candies down an extended measuring tape that ends in one of your housemate's mouth. If they can catch it in their mouth, you're both winners.
