Condom Review: Durex Tropical

Bust out a coconut shell bra, a grass skirt and a ukelele– because it’s time to dish on the testing I did with the Durex Tropical condoms.

These flavored condoms come in three bright and festive island hues and smell quite a bit like fruit candy from my childhood like Runts, Gushers Life Savers or Jolly Ranchers. As a scent-oriented person, I am very sensitive to condom odor– perhaps even more so than the average person. So, you can imagine my surprise when these mouth watering flavors also pleased my discerning nostrils.


This condom comes in 3 flavors: strawberry, green apple and banana. The wrappers are color coded, but the actual scent/flavor is not listed on the packages. Instead, there is a little graphic image of the represented fruit on the back of the wrapper underneath the “Made in Malaysia” statement. Banana comes in a gold wrapper, strawberry is in a red wrapper and green apple is in a green wrapper.

These fruity beauties feature a substantial size, both in width and length. At 8.25” long and 2.12” wide, these above-average sized condoms will accommodate a larger guy or a larger toy. I also think they would be ideal for a DIY dental dam, since these scrumptious condoms are large enough to easily be converted as such.

After taste testing each of the flavors, I found that I strongly prefer the green apple– which is not shocking considering I like real green apples so much. I suggest using the corresponding fruit flavor of the real fruit your partner likes the best. Just don’t call them Granny Smith when their sucking on your green junk.

I found the amount of slick, water-based lube to be sufficient for oral, but I would definitely use an additional flavored lubricant for vaginal sex for safety. Swiss Navy Pina Colada Flavored Lubricant would be my first pick for a pairing with the Durex Tropical condoms.

Ordinarily, I use Trustex Flavored Condoms, but after trying the Durex Tropical condom, I will be switching to these. Bye bye, brand loyalty– I’m taking a tropical cruise to the warm and sandy shores of Durex country!

Final Verdict:

For a delicious and safer oral sex experience involving a larger sized gentleman, I would definitely recommend these wonderfully smelling condoms. They’ll whisk you both away to a tropical paradise where you’ll surely get lei’d!

Overall Rating: 5 Stars
