“ Brand: Asda / Type: Gum „
I like Jelly Sweets and Gummy things, and the packaging of this looked cust and pretty. I was buying a bag out of the Asda Sweet range, and if you buy 3 packs from the range you get them for £1. I know that's not much of a saving, since the bags are 36p each, but i'm a sucker for any kind of offer, and if it lets me try other Sweets then why not. So I decided this would be my 3rd Bag of Sweets to try.
As I mentioned the packing is pretty cool. It is Sky blue colour and there is a few Cloud symbols. There is a tuft of Green probably to sybolise grass, and there is a few flowers dotted about the bag. There is a picture of the Cow Sweets, and the Daiy Cow writing is quite bubbly looking and in a white and pink cow print pattern.
In the pack there is
There was 20 sweets in the bag and they are pink and purple coloured. They are in the shape of a Cow, and although you can see the markings, they aren't immediately recognised as a Cow.
So now to the taste of these. They were horrible. I had these a work, and other people tried them, and I didn't find anyone who thought they tasted nice. It is so hard to actually explain what these taste like. The outside of the chew is quite hard, and the inside is a little more soft. They taste a little fruity, more like Berry tasting, but the taste is just sickly, pretty creamy, and also a little plastic like. To smell these they smell pretty nice, but they just taste totally yukky.
You can try these out of curiosity, and I would love to know if anyone out there actually likes these sweets, but I will never, ever have 1 of these again. A reluctant 1 star, as I don't have the option to give none!
Now I'd wanted to try these sweets for quite some time. There was no particular reason really. No rave reviews or recommendations I just liked the sound of them.
Daisy Cow Yoghurt (don't ask why they spell it like that) Gums come in a very funky bag. The bag is baby blue in colour and has the words Daisy Cow written proudly in the centre. These words have a cow's skin pattern on them in pink and white and the 'o' in cow is actually a flower. The bag therefore certainly gets the thumbs up from me.
The front of the bag also tells me that the sweets have no artificial colours or flavours and are also suitable for vegetarians. The back of the bag also contains all of the nutritional information as follows...

So what were they like? Well let me say I was totally disappointed, as I'm afraid the gums were really not very nice. In fact they were so bad I couldn't even finish them.
My bag contained 20 sweets, 5 of each colour, dark pink, baby pink, purple and white. Each sweet is about 2cm high and shaped like a cows head, which is pretty cool I suppose.
Despite this somewhat novelty factor the good points about the sweets really stop there. I'm not too sure how to describe the actual taste of them apart from to say that on now count was it appetising. In fact in a way they tasted a little like plastic and were definitely too sweet.
Needless to say I would definitely not recommend these but if you do have an incessant need to try them they can be purchased for 36p from Asda or on offer with another two bags for £1. My advice however would be to stay well clear of them and try some of Asda's more delicious sweet choices.
