Rowntrees Jelly Tots
Advantages: Very soft and easy to eat, very sweet and fruity flavours
Disadvantages: Too small so I end up eating too many!
I remember eating these quite a bit when I was younger especially when I'd stay over at my cousin's house and my uncle would take us all out in the morning and treat us to something from the newsagents - and Jelly Tots was always by favourite choice.
Jelly Tots are little fruit flavoured jelly sweets which are made with 25% fruit juice so they really are very fruity and are full of flavour. They come in a range of different colours and flavours including lemon, lime, orange, blackcurrant and strawberry and each one does taste very much like the actual fruit. They also have a coating of white sugar all over them and this makes them a lot sweeter and gives them that sugary texture that is so hard to resist licking!
Usually I always prefer the strawberry and blackcurrant type of flavours in sweets but every single flavour of these is really lovely tasting. Even the lemon and lime ones, which I'm not usually so keen on, are too sweet and fruity to dislike.
The reason that I like these sweets so much is because they are so addictive. They are actually really tiny little round sweets, smaller than Skittles even, so a few of them is just never enough. Even the little individual bags they come in rarely leave me satisfied now as what's inside them is so tiny.
Because they're so small I think they're a great little treat for young children as they're very easy to eat and not overly chewy like most jelly sweets but are actually quite soft.
They now come in larger sharing bags though and, because they're so small, you do get an awful lot of them in there so I much prefer to go for the bigger bags now.
These were my favourite sweets when I was younger and I still go crazy over them now if I ever come across a pack!
Summary: My favourite sweets from my childhood
