We love sweets in this house. To be exact my OH can sit and demolish a pack of wine gums in about 10 minutes. It doesn’t matter when we nip to the shop a bag of sweets will find its way into our bag!!!
Anyway we were sent some of the NEW Rountrees share bags to try. Share being the operative word and something my OH can struggle with once a bag of sweets are opened.
I opened our lovely package to find these new packs.
Very exciting as the kids ‘bagsied’ the alien ones within seconds….only to be told that really to do a review we all had to try some from each of the bags!
It was all going swimmingly until my youngest became ill before we could try any……….it was almost unbearable to wait until he was better, but we thought it would be very unfair of us to be scoffing whilst he couldn’t eat anything. So we waited, and waited, and waited………until he felt better enough to try them.
So a few facts:
Jelly Aliens – contains 25% fruit juice
Sour faces/ Very Berry Jellies – both contain 50% fruit juice
ALL 3 BAGS contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives!!
A huge thumbs up from all of us. The kids absolutely loved the Jelly Aliens and the randoms ( especially looking for the new shapes!)but the grown up favourites were definitely the Very Berry Jellies ( definitely very fruity)and the Sour faces ( which really made us pull faces)!!
Rountrees have been around for a while, since 1881 in fact! So how many of their products do you remember?
Fruit gums ( my all time favourites)
Randoms (introduced only 3 years ago)
Although I haven’t been around since 1881 I very much remember them all!
So that only leaves me with 1 burning question……………
CAN YOU PUT A FRUIT PASTILLE IN YOUR MOUTH WITHOUT CHEWING IT????
