Flavor Description: Pineapple heavy gummy bears, executed pretty well overall.
Texture here is actually pretty solid. Not quite as thick, dense, and chewy as 27 Fish, but it has that waxy thing from actual gummy bears down pretty well. Actually feels like it coats your mouth with that halfway dissolved gelatin thing that a mouthful of gummy bears has going on.
And it tastes like gummy bears. Mostly like white pineapple gummy bears. There's some actual tartness here that could either be a tarter take on pineapple or more of a discrete orange flavor. I'm also getting some sweeter strawberryish flavor in here too. The classic haribo flavors are raspberry, strawberry, lemon, orange, and pineapple... and I could definitely see all of those being in here but it's weighted more towards the pineapple and the citrus.
The only direct competition that I've had for this would be FW Gummy Candy, and this has a much better mouthfeel but it does have a pretty identifiable fruit flavored attached. FW Gummy Candy has always sort of worked a bit better in theory than in practice for me, so while 27 bears might not theoretically be as versatile, It'll work better when the actual flavor of gummy bears isn't going to get in the way.
Off-flavors: Not really, pretty much just gummy bears. Gets a bit chemical at high percentages, but nothing too bad within usable percentage ranges.
Throat Hit: Light to moderate. I do get a bit of harshness on this, but it seems to settle in a bit moderately quickly and smooth back out. Initially seems to dry out your mouth a bit and that might be contributing.
Percentage testing: At 2%, this is weaker. I'm mostly getting a light candy pineapple. Seems to be missing some of the other fruit accents in there. Texture is a little sticky, but it's more like a dry sticky and not that gelatinous gummy bear thing.
Filled in quite a bit at 5%. Still very much pineapple forward, but I'm picking up some extra citrus tartness and some "red flavor" way in the back. Flavor still feels like it could be maybe just a touch more saturated.
Trying this up at 8%, I'm starting to find some of the chemical edges of this flavor. The red part has filled in a bit but it's almost tasting a little too citrus heavier. Mouthfeel is dramatically better than 5%.
Just based on these tests, I'd probably use this an accent flavor around 3% and a primary flavor around 6-7%.
Uses & Pairings: A higher percentage of this concentrate, too much sweetener, and some questionable marketing and you've got yourself a hype flavor. This could use maybe a bit more "red" to it with a candied strawberry or raspberry, and maybe some vanilla swirl to round the edges off, but pretty remarkably close to a single flavor gummy bear as it is.
Should be useful as a slightly tart, gummy mouthfeel additive for more diverse candy profiles. I don't think you're completely going to get away from the fruitiness here, but you can probably overwhelm it with your fruit flavor of choice especially at lower percentages. The mouthfeel shows ups a bit later than than the fruit flavor, so it'll be fairly difficult to get a clear fruit flavor not already in that gummy bear spectrum and still get all of that mouthfeel.
Second Opinions: Still fairly new.

Here's the product page from Capella. Their description: "Silverline’s new mystery jelly treat, 27 Bears will surely satisfy your inner sweet tooth. A clear gummy texture with a sweet, sugary taste that will leave you growling for more!" Ain't no mystery here. It's gummy bears.

CAP 27 Bears - Been really enjoying this flavor in different gummy flavors. Brings a bright gummy that isn't plastic tasting like some gummy flavors I've tried. Believe it tastes fully authentic.
CAP 27 Fish - Bringing more gummy to the table while bolstering the red flavor of the juice. Also another gummy I think tastes completely realistic to the title.
RF Strawberry - Is the power house of the two strawberries used in the recipe. brings a jammy/candy strawberry flavor.
CAP Sweet Strawberry - Rounds out the strawberry jam/candy portion of the recipe.
CAP Super Sweet - Felt it was needed to hype the flavors and bring on the brightness needed to do the original juice justice. Tried CAP SS all the way up to 3%, didn't add anything special that I was looking for, so just used to bring out the strawberry candy and hype the gummy.
Preferred Shake and Vape. Tested in the Falcon Mesh Tank.
A sweet pineapple candy with a nice chewy texture, similar to those tasty, chewy candy cubes that are coated with sugar (like in the thumbnail). I wanted a very pineapple forward candy and I think this accomplishes that.
Pineapple - CAP Golden Pineapple for a sweet candy pineapple and FLV Pineapple for more of a realistic note but still candy enough to work here. TPA Dragonfruit just to fill in some gaps and still add a hint of Pineapple gummy.
Candy - CAP 27 Bears is a great flavour, and seems to lean towards pineapple so I thought it would be a good match. FA Candy Wizard to add the gummy mouth feel and a great texture.
I added a fair bit of sweetener here with .75%. I actually upped it to 1% early on in the batches but it felt a bit too sweet for my tastes. But, people who have tried it, liked it with the higher amount.
just a simple gummy watermelon candy. sweet watermelon which is very candy like watermelon to me. TPA watermelon candy provides that tart candy watermelon note. 27 bears and cap jelly to create a gummy candy base. The cap apple simply adds more body and depth to the flavor that is needed in the middle. Vanilla swirl blends this all together with a slight sweet vanilla note
Mixed for mixin in the kitchen show on Gummy candy

so I love tutti fruti jelly beans they just pop with that bright in your face fruit flavor - so this is my take on that .
I used 27 bears, marshmallow and circus candy to create the main jelly texture. 27 bears is a pretty authentic gummy bear type texture and has a white gummy flavor note. The rainbow sherbet I used to create the bright fruit flavor mix - along with the fizzy sherbet which helps that flavor to really brighten and pop . The hard candy is not really needed here but does add that slight sense of the hard candy shell if kept a a very low %. If you want that extra pop of sweetness then add sweetner but it is pretty sweet with the cotton candy
simple gummy type recipe - if you are making a jelly bean or gummies you want to keep the flavor profile simple and use a central flavor that will really pop, much as you get with a gummy or jelly bean candy . if you are adding a marshmallow , cap Jelly candy , vanilla swirl or menagerie keep them low and use as an additive for mouth feel - or it can mute the main note . The 27 bears is a great gummie base but it does add a slight pineapple back note that really works here helping to push the strawberry upfront-
you could add TFA straberry or FA juicy strawberry to really enhance the strawberry - as it is a candid strawberry but Liquid barn strawberry cheesecake is a solid strong flavor with some creaminess add by the cheesecake at the recommend percentage. This is good as a shake and vape but needs 3 days to come together
