Rowntrees Pick & Mix
Advantages: tasty, made with real fruit juice, good mix
I am more of a chocolate person but on occasions I do purchase the odd bag of sweets for a treat. Recently my local Tesco express store has had the larger grab bags of sweets and chocolates on offer at half price. This is when I spotted the bags of Rowntrees Pick & Mix which contains a variety of Rowntrees sweets all in one bag.
As I stated I purchased a 150g bag of the pick and mix sweets from Tesco Express on a half price offer and paid just £0.67. I thought this was really good value as I often find the larger bags of sweets can be rather expensive.
The Rowntrees pick and mix contains a mixture of three of their most well-known sweets:
- Fruit Gums
- Tooty Frooties
- Fruit Pastilles
The sweets come packed in a very bright and colourful plastic bag which has a picture of each type of sweets contained inside. The pack also details all the necessary information that you need to know about the sweets. This includes ingredients listings, nutritional information and that the sweets contain no artificial, colours, flavours or preservatives.
The sweets are all mixed together in the bag so it is just like having a pick and mix and I found that you get a fairly even amount of each. My husband likes to tear the bag right open and pick out what he wants while I prefer just to dip in and see what I get. All of the sweets are various fruit flavours and I will say they are all rather tasty, the fruit flavour does come from real fruit juice which is used to make the sweets as it states in the ingredients listings. I really do like this combination of fruity sweets, they are very tasty and all quite chewy. As you get a combination of sweets then they do not get boring or sickly tasting and are really enjoyable.
Overall I think these Rountrees pick and mix sweets are a fantastic idea and are great tasting sweets.
