Until recently only three were available in Australia, mint, spearmint, and fruit (strawberry, lemon and orange). This changed rapidly about 12 months ago when limited edition rolls started cropping up and new permanent flavour rolls appeared.
I saw the Rainbow roll at a service station as I was leaving and I was in a hurry so I didn't stop to get one. I then spent the next two weeks searching every supermarket and candy store to try and find them. I must have seen them early in the roll out phase because I finally caved and went back to the specific service station to get them, but now see the damn things everywhere!

The candies inside are just as pretty, pastel colours in a complete rainbow spectrum. The flavours are reasonable as well, strawberry was as expected, as was the orange, due to having tasted them in the regular fruit roll.
The Final Verdict: 3 - They were enjoyable and fun but there weren't enough really good flavours to grab me and make me want to buy it again.

The taste was very true to cola, sweet with a slight bite to it. Unlike the Hi-Chew there was no fizz sensation. Like the packet of rainbow there were 14 candies in the roll in total. While the cola roll was not as good looking as the rainbow I'd almost pick it as the favourite because of the consistency that I would eat all the candies in this roll.
The Final Verdict: 3 - These are tasty, I think I like them more than rainbow but probably not enough to choose it as my go to Mentos flavour, I'd still pick mint if I'm wanting Mentos.
