I have no issues with the taste of them. They are nice an fruity and creamy too. The tube allows for easy application, same tube as the regular Blistex as a matter of fact.
What bothers me about them is that I feel my lips have been more chapped than ever since I've been using them! Seriously! I keep them in my jacket pockets so there's always one handy but my lips are always chapped and I'm always chewing the skin on my lips... gross but you do it too so stop pretending.
I think I'm going to switch to something else for the next couple of days to be sure that it's the Blistex Fruit Smoothies that's just not agreeing with my lips but at this moment, I don't recommend this product
