Like Boy Meets World, choker necklaces, and Polaroid cameras, Gushers gummies are a ’90s icon that any kid who grew up in the decade would recognize. And now, they're making a comeback. The brand just launched limited-edition outer space-themed flavors of the classic candies, and the new “Galactic Gushers” include a mystery flavor in each box. But that’s not all—if you guess the mystery flavor correctly, you can win prizes like Walmart and Visa gift cards, sweatshirts, blankets, and more.

For just $6 a box, you can get these Galactic gummies exclusively at Walmart until the end of January. The extraterrestrial-inspired flavors include Asteroid Apple, Berry Star Cluster, and UFO—or “Unidentified Flavor Object”—as the mystery flavor, which could be either Light-Year Lemon-Lime, Meteorite Mandarin-Melon, Big Bang Blue-Raspberry, or Satellite Strawberry-Kiwi.

If you think you know which of the four flavors it is, enter the contest at the Galactic Gushers website and take your pick. Only those 13 or older can participate in the Gushers giveaway, and each winning guess is eligible for one prize. You can enter once per day until the contest is over at 11:59 p.m. ET on April 30, 2020, so technically, you could take roughly 115 guesses until then (and subsequently, eat just as many gummies).

Apart from the gift cards, sweatshirts, and blankets that you can win, Gushers is also giving away other fun prizes; you can view the full list here. To know that the beloved ’90s snack still exists is already a treat, but the chance to win prizes while enjoying them is the cherry on top. We recommend picking up more than just one box of these special-edition Galactic Gushers: After all, the more gummies you eat, the better chance you have of nailing down the taste. It’s all in the name of science.
