Everyone knows that the pink starbursts are the best, the yellow starbursts are the worst, and the rest are just filler between the two. Fruit-Tella is only the pink starbursts. It is the Justified, to Starburst’s Celebrity – all Justin Timberlake, with none of the rest of NSYNC to weigh him down.
Actually, this is a bald-faced lie. Not about the candy – these are great – but I actually have no real frame of reference for early 2000s boy bands, as I was never that cool in middle school. But that’s never stopped me pretending before (#fakeittillyoumakeit) so here are some more music analogies that I have no place making:
Fruit-Tella is the Beyonce to Starburst’s Destiny’s Child
The Michael to Starburst’s Jackson 5
The Neil Young to Starburst’s Buffalo Springfield
The Paul Simon to Starburst’s Simon and Garfunkel
The Mozart to, I guess, the rest of Mozart’s Starburst family
In short, Fruit-Tella is only the best.
