Rowntrees Jelly Tots
Advantages: Great fruity taste
Disadvantages: Price, lots and lots of sugar
I write this review to you as i eat a packet of jelly tots (no i'm not just saying that, i really am!).
Jelly Tots are porducred by Rowntress, who also make fruist pastilles, fruit gums and many more confectionary sweets. Before now i couldt remeber the last time i had them. Probably in my teens when i used to pop down the local sweet shop and buy a pack. back in those days they were about 20p but nowadays they have shot up to about 30p-40p which is abit steep considering how small the pack actually is.
It comes in a nice yellow packet with colourful pictures of fruit on it which is probably to make it appealing to the kids (and me!). on the packet is claims to have no artificial colours or flavours and contain 25% fruit juice. Looks my one portion of five is sorted with this!! :-P. They contain the following fruits and will try to put them according to the colours of the sweet aswell.
Lime - Green
Lemon - Yellow
Orange - Orange
Purple - Blackcurrant (although does have a slight appley taste to it)
Red - Strawberry
On the pack is also states it has grape in it aswell as the apple but noy sure where the grape is, sorry. These are small (somehow smaller then before) round soft chewy sweets covered and i mean covered in sugar. I would not recommend giving this to your kids as they will have one hell of a sugar rush. Theres nothing worse than a cola sugar rush then a jelly tooting kid! To tell you how much sugar there is, when your on your last jelly tot, tip the packet in your hand to catch the last one and you'll see what i mean!
The sweets (bar the sugar) taste very nice and you can actually taste the actual fruitiness of it which is really nice and shows they are not lying lol. From my experience the purple ones seem to be the softest out fo all the flavours for some reason and the green ones now and again are the hardest. I dont know why they just are, i may just write to mr rowntree himself. Even thought they are hard i quite like the green ones but sometimes my inner child comes out and tend to throw a hole lot in my mouth so i get my fruit mix!
Overall this is a great packet of sweets and would recommend you to ty a pack. Dont have them regularly as you may not having any teeth left and please unless you want your child to be one of those duracell batteries that go on and on and on.
This may be bad advice buy Tescos are currently doing the big sharing packets for only 70, so it might be a good invest and eaten over the whole week or even to share with friends or work colleagues. Just dont eat them all, save me some to!
Summary: Ahhh brings back the memories
