“ Brand: Asda / Type: Candy „
I love sweets and we always have some in the cupboard. These sweets cost 38p for one packet or 3 packets for £1, you can mix and match with other sweets in the Asda range. A packet of these sweets contains 80g.
When you open the packet what you get is three different items which you can use to build your burger. The first piece is the bottom of the burger which consists of the bun which is coloured exactly like a real bun and a translucent red coloured burger on the top of the bottom piece. The next piece is a piece of cheese which is a yellow foam with a tomato attached to it and finally the top piece which is again a foam burger top which also has a piece of lettuce attached this is made from green jelly. When you place the pieces together you get a complete burger which looks fun to eat and would be appealing to children. The sweets also have good detail to them, the top of the bun has sesame seeds moulded onto it. The tomatoes look like real tomatoes and it appears that there are three of them!
The sweets themselves are really tasty, they are fruity and have a mixture of textures, you get the foam pieces which are slightly chewy and them the jelly pieces which are really chewy. These sweets are one of my favourites and you get a good number of complete burgers in the packet so they are perfect for sharing.

Due to the fact that I'm waiting for a large bunch of suggestions to be accepted by Dooyoo, I'm afraid it's going to have to be another sweet review and once again it is a bag of Asda's children's sweets that I am going to review. The bag in particular is 'Build a Burger' fruit flavoured jelly sweets, which like most of the Asda Brand sweets are really, really nice.
The sweets come in an 80g bag and cost 38p but can be bought with any other 2 bags of Asda's sweets in this range for £1, making them even better value for money. The bag in question is quite colourful and does stand out on the shelf. It is two shades of blue and has the words 'Build a Burger' written in red block capitals printed across the centre. Underneath this is a cartoon style picture of three burger sweets fitted together to look like a complete burger. The front of the bag also gives me the information that the sweets are free from artificial colours and flavourings.
The nutritional information for this product is on the back of the packet and is as follows.

Now these sweets really are fun to eat. When you open the packet you are met with a very fruity aroma, that isn't too sickly and therefore definitely invites you to delve in. The pack itself contains 33 burger pieces, which in my opinion is quite good value for money. There are three styles of burger piece and putting all three together gives you a complete burger, meaning that my packet made 11 complete burgers. The first piece is the bottom half of a bread-cake with a burger on it. The second piece is a slice of cheese with some tomato on the top and the third piece is the top half of a bread-cake with some lettuce on it. The bread-cake halves and the cheese slice are all made out of a foam type substance whilst the burger, lettuce and tomato are more jelly like.
The sweets themselves are relatively chewy but not too tough as to make eating them uncomfortable. The sweets are also really fruity and therefore quite refreshing on the palette. Now I know that taste is supposed to be the most important thing but with these sweets I think that the fun factor is just as good as at 18 years old I still love to build the burgers up before eating them and get quite disgruntled if I find I don't have enough cheese pieces but have too many lettuce pieces.
All things considered I think these sweets offer an excellent value for money. The pack size means they can easily be concealed in a handbag or pocket and are perfect for taking to the cinema or even for munching whilst watching a film or whilst surfing the Internet at home. Better still for you they don't cost a fortune and so will keep most children (and some adults) contented without costing you the earth. Another highly recommended Asda brand sweet.
