Ghostbusters is, at its heart, a media property about using your science brain to solve problems and shoot spooky, yet visually interesting monsters with brightly colored zap guns before you shove them into a box. Zany food tie ins are practically printing money for this franchise. So, how in the world did you make them this BORING? The key lime flavor is incredibly muted with these, to the point where it almost detracts from the sweetness of the filling. You should be crossing flavor streams in my mouth, causing full protonic reversal of my taste buds, but instead, it is full of meh. Did you just take a leftover box of Key Lime flavor dust and add it to the creme, not really making sure to get the proportions right? What a snooze fest. From a Twinkie no less!
On the FACE Rating System, this gets 2 frowny faces. It's a lazy, Class 5 Cash Grab, a real nasty one at that. The idea is great on paper, but the execution falls about as flat as you can get, mostly due to what I can only imagine is a lack of giving a shit. If you are a flavor completionist, maybe try and score one on the cheap or for free, but don't actually bother. Boring is actually worse than simply being bad, or just not working out. Never be boring with your tie-ins! You have the tools, you have the talent, but you apparently just left all that at home for this one.
