“ Brand: Asda / Type: Cola „
Before any car journey lasting above an hour I always stock up on the essentials: a good book, a few girly gossip mags and Asda's 3 for £1 sweets to keep me occupied! My favourite from the Asda 3 for £1 range of sweets if the fizzy cherry cola bottles. I always used to have them in school so they are a blast from the past. I also love anything fizzy so these are the ideal fizzy treat!
The sweets come in a 95g bag, the bag is purple and red and very 'snazzy' and eye catching. It has 'fizzy cherry cola bottles' on the front in large writing and fancy font which again act as a good eye catcher. The nutritional information and ingredients and how to store the sweets is contained on the back. Inside the bag you get a very generous helping of sweets for just 38p (if you don't take advantage of the 3 for £1 offer.)
The cola bottles themselves are the same size and shape as regular cola bottles. They are thick and bottle shaped jelly sweets coated in sugar. Half of the sweet is brown and is 'cola' flavoured and the other half is red and 'cherry' flavoured. The flavours really compliment each other and mix well together in my mouth. The sugar adds a zingy taste to it and is quite sour! The texture is gooey and soft which is like any other cola bottle sweets.
The disadvantages are that they are coated in sugar so they aren't a treat that should be consumed very often as they can damage teeth really quickly. They do become addictive too and you'll end up eating your way through the whole bag!!
Overall, I think these are a tasty one off treat which is flavoursome and tangy and I would recommend these sweets especially when used in conjunction with the 3 for £1 offer.
I LOVE any sort of fizzy sweets so brought myself 3 bags for £1.00 in Asda the other day, and all 3 of them was these Fizzy Cherry Cola Bottles because they're lush!
The sweets are small jellies and shaped like bottles of coke. They are brown at the bottom and light red at the top to show you that you're eating Cherry Cola Bottles and not plain Cola Bottles because those are white at the top. The sweets are covered in sugar and look wicked.
They are quite chewy to start with but go soft quicker than a lot of other fizzy sweets. The sugar is wickedly fizzy and has got a tiny bit of a sour taste so that the sweets are a bit zingy as well as being lovely and sweet.
The cola flavour is dead strong in these sweets but they have also got a nice fruity taste that you can tell is cherry flavour. They don't exactly taste like cherry coke pop but you can tell the flavours are deffo there and they still taste yummy. The taste stays nice and strong as you chew the sweets so you're never left with a lump of jelly that doesn't taste like anything, one of the sweets you can buy in Sainsburys is like that and the flavour disappears soooooooo quick!
I think these sweets are delish but I think they must be like Marmite because out of all the people I've ever shared these with they either love them or hate them. One of my mates hates them so much that even the smell when I open the bag is too much for her and she has to move away! lol A bit of an over reaction cos these don't even smell of much except for sugar.....!!! lol
The bag is different to the one Dooyoo have got up and it's a nice pink now with funky purple writing on it, the new bag is a lot nicer than the boring one you can see in the photo above!
Recommended..... 38p for a 95g bag or you can buy 3 bags for £1.00 and mix and match them with other sweets.
I love fizzy cherry cola bottles so when I saw these in the 3 for £1 offer at Asda I thought I would try them.
The packaging is pink with a picture of a cola bottle that has the bottom part made out of clear plastic so you can see the product inside. The sweets are free from artificial colours and flavourings but may contain traces of milk so are not suitable for people allergic to it. Also the third ingredient on the list is pork gelatine so although the packet doesn't say so, the sweets are not suitable for vegetarians.
100g of these sweets (just over a bagful as a bag is 95g) gives 324kcal, 5.2g of protein, 73.2g of carbohydrates, 0.3g of fat and o.o4g of sodium. If you are on a low carb diet then these sweets are definitely not for you.
I had to rip a corner off the bag as it would not pull apart at the top. The sweets smell like sour cherries so that is a good start. They taste like good old cherry cola bottles and are actually quite sour with their fizziness. They are chewy and you could easily mistake them for a much more expensive product. I was really impressed with these.
Where do I start for my love of these small bottles of fizzling goodness?
They are 37p each at Asda and are always on offer for the sum of 3 for £1 as are all the sweets, you can mix and match and there are some ace sweets in the range but I always end up buying 3 packets of these bad boys cos they are particularly lush and addictive. Which is good but at the same time not that good as they are of course so high in sugar.
Packaging is funky and will probably appeal to kids.
Appearance is good, there are no artificial colours which is a bonus to know especially if you are going to give these to the kids. Typical cola bottle territory really...bottle like and sugary...all good.
Taste, not too sour but do pack a bit of a kick, the flavour of these is lovely and even nicer than ordinary fizzy cola bottles. No artificial flavours either which again is nice to know that you're not eating anything too nasty, apart from loads of sugar laden calories. It's almost worth it though they are ultimately my favourite sweet going, luckily I don't get to go Asda very often as I'd just walk out with a huge trolley overflowing with these and spilling everywhere.

I've been to Asda and stocked up on yet more sweet treats.... This time I was more adventurous and went for Asda Fizzy Cherry Cola Bottles ...
The sweets come in a red and purple plastic bag. Cherry Cola Bottles is emblazoned over the front of the packaging. There is also a clear cut out plastic window on the front of the packaging so you can see the sweets inside of the wrapper.
When opening these sweets it is worth just tearing a corner off the bag. If you open them fully because the cola bottle are covered in sugar I find that the excess sugar ends up spilling out of the bag and ending up everywhere (more than usually over my sofa or inside my bag!).
A 100g bag of these sweets cost 37p in Asda and because they are and Asda own brand product surprisingly only available in........ yes that's right Asda. A much cheaper alternative to the Tangfastic range from Haribo which I also absolutely love.
These sweets are part of Asda's 3 bags for £1 range. You can either get 3 bags of this product or mix and match with the other bags of sweets included in the offer.
***Fizzy Cherry Cola Bottles***
As you open the bag of sweets you are immediately hit with a very sweet sugar aroma. After this scent dies down the predominant scent is of cherry with a slight hit of cola and traditional plain cola bottles.
Each sweet is shaped like a cola bottle. These are about 2cm in length. The top of the bottle shaped sweet is brown and the bottom half of the bottle is red, therefore split between cola and cherry flavoured. Each sweet is covered in grains of sugar.
When you put the cola bottles in you mouth the sweet fizzy taste is very apparent initially. You are then hit with a sweet cola taste like normal fizzy cola bottles. The sweet cherry flavour can then be tasted. This is very sweet but more unnatural and a sharper cherry taste than other cherry sweets from Asda such as the Jelly cherries. The more you chew the sweet the more fizzy and sour the sweet gets. This is a very sharp tangy taste in your mouth and extremely sour.
The jelly sweets are very chewy and a lot softer than many other brands of fizzy cola bottles. The jelly is quite soft and sticky and if the sweets have been kept in reasonably warm place.
Sweets are never the best option nutritionally but this would be a massive intake of sugar if you were to eat the full bag of these all in one go. Calories and fat wise these fizzy cherry cola bottles are pretty standard to what you would expect from most other jelly sweets.
These are a nice sweet treat if you like cherry and fizzy sour sweets. If you are not a fan of sour sweets then these are most certainly not for you. Also those with mouth ulcers or cuts inside their mouth might want to give these sweets a miss. I'm afraid to say I didn't take note when Mr Lools suggested when I had a mouth ulcer to not eat these ... and the stinging pain in my mouth after one sweet unfortunately was pretty bad!!!
Having a sweet tooth, and seeing these on sale for 3 for £1 or 39p each, I decided to try them.
You get 100g of Fizzy cherry cola bottles. They are the same size as standard cola bottles and have red tips to indicate the cherry nature.
I found these to be great value for money, but oh so moreish. I have not been able to buy them and open a bag and leave any for later. They are sweet, fizzy but not in a sour way (they don't make you grimace when you eat them because of the sourness and you don't get that sour tang at the back of your jaw), but they are fizzy and coated with sugar grains.
As with any jelly sugar coated sweet, they are low in fat but high in calories due to the sugar.... 346 calories per 100g.
Overall, for a 100g bag of tasty fizzy jelly sweets for 3 bags for £1 this is great value- when you consider even 20 yrs ago 1 cola bottle in a pick and mix/ 10p mixture would cost 1p. you get more than 33 in a pack so it is good value.
They are tasty, cheap enough to buy three packs, but if you aren't too keen on the cherry flavour, the range of 3 for £1 sweets is decent so you can get fiy laces, fizzy wands, normal cola bottles, foamy sweets etc,
I love sweets, I can often be found with a glass of white wine and a strawberry lace hanging languidly out the side of it (disgusting I know!) but on the recent pre-camping food shop I bee-lined for the sweet section - after all sweets are a necessity on any long car journey. I was as mesmerised as a child looking at all the quirky named and coloured packets. Asda do three packets for £1 or 39p each which is really good value and means that you can get something for everyone.
Fizzy cherry cola bottles are always going to be a carload pleaser, the packet has been updated since the one shown in the Dooyoo picture and shows some cartoon cherry bottles fizzing with stars on the front there is 95 grams of sweets in each pack, which does not sound like a lot but it equates to about 40 sweets. Now often, and with other brands like Haribo Tangtastic I just don't find these fizzy sweets fizzy enough and I didn't really expect anything more from these but I was in for a shock!
The sweets are shaped like cola bottles, the bottom half is red from the cherry flavouring and the top is cola flavoured and coloured. Each sweet is nicely coated in sugar and is a reasonable size, smaller than the ones you get in the cinema but perfect for nibbling a few at a time. I popped one in my mouth whilst driving and immediately the tangy, sour and altogether pleasurable fizzy sensation hit me. The initial impact caused me to wince and then it subsided only to come back for a second hit that made my mouth purse and eyes squint. It was fantastic!! The flavour was good, not too much cherry as I know this can put people off but if I am honest the flavour was secondary to the dance in my mouth that was going on anyway.
I thought maybe that one sweet was a fluke, you know how you can get some packets of crisps that are stronger and more satisfyingly flavoured than others?? Well I thought I could have just got lucky but no consistently sweet after sweet the same oral response. My other half loved them too, and experienced the same involuntary reaction.
As you might expect they are 11 calories a sweet (who's counting I was on holiday after all!) and are not suitable for vegetarians. They contain no artifical colourings or flavourings but do contain sulphur dioxide, after a quick search on the food standards website it is apparently a common preservative so I don't think its anything too scary.
The sweets contain malic acid which is what causes the products 'tartness' and actually occurs naturally in cherries. All in all there was nothing in the product that I would be against eating.
In summary I reckon these are only going to be your thing if you like sour/tangy flavours but children will love them and they make a nice change to the bland sweets produced by other supermarkets. This one is a winner for me!
The Basics: Cherry-Cola flavour medium-soft gummy sweets with a fizzy, slightly sour, sugar coating.
The Price: around 37p at Asda (or 3 for £1 when on offer).
The Info: 324 kcal/100g, 0g fat/100g, 76.1g carbs/100g
The Review: My favourite way to kick off a slow weekend is with a big bowl of sweets and a movie. Asda do a great range of cheap good quality sweets which fall under the 3 for £1 offer, including these fizzy cherry cola bottles.
As another top-tip I also like to have a bag of sweets (or two!) on long car journey's and these fit the bill perfectly. HOWEVER, be aware that you will end up with sugary fingers and sugar-covered clothing no matter how sensibly you eat these.
They taste great and have a pleasant after taste although your teeth can feel a little 'sugary' afterwards! I'd also say that these are great to share although people who don't like sour sweets may find them a little challenging! If, however, you fancy a bit of a treat, dip your finger in the sugar at the bottom of the packet for a final blast of carbohydrate goodness!
Whilst I was in my local Asda supermarket the other day I popped to the sweetie aisle in order that I could re-stock my 'junk basket'.
My junk basket (as affectionately named by my ever-so-sarcastic other half) is my little treat box - all manner of sweeties and chocolate bars, mints and chews nestled in amongst each other like a little treasure chest of delights. :-D (I know, I know - I'm a big kid!)
As I knew that supplies were running a bit low (!), I opted to cast my eye over the various offerings available from Asda, and re-stock my valuable treasure trove.
For those of you who are unaware, Asda own-branded bags of sweets can be found on offer at "3 bags for a pound" which I think really offers brilliant value. I think they cost around 37 pence per bag, but cannot be 100 percent about this because I am greedy and always choose to buy the three bags! The range varies from fizzy strawberry laces to flying saucers filled with sherbet (yum) and of course, a huge range of gum-like sweets.
I selected two bags of sweets, and was on the verge of choosing my third when my eye caught the bright cerise pink-coloured bag of "Asda Fizzy cherry cola bottles". As they too were included in the 3-for-£1 offer, my mind was duly made up and that was that. In case it is of relevance, I will tell you at this point that the packaging shown on the dooyoo page is the older style packet.
Anyway, such things are too much of a temptation for my (evil) sweet tooth unfortunately, so it wasn't really too long after returning home from doing the shopping before I was in the junk basket plucking the bag of fizzy bottles from its confines to give them a try.
The 95g bag of sweets contains what I would describe as a generous handful of sweets. The sweets themselves are little bottle-shaped jellies, that are half red and half brown in colour. The outside is coated in sugar and each sweet is probably about an inch long.
Popping one into my mouth, my taste buds were instantly hit with a powerful sour taste which was indeed very fizzy. The 'cherry coke' flavouring was definitely coming through though, although I did find that the sugary fizzy coating overtook this by a long shot.
The cherry flavour was really pleasant and once the sugar had dissolved a little in my mouth, I felt that I could taste it a bit better than before.
I found the texture of the little sweets to be very pleasant - not too soft, and nice and chewy, which is just right in my book!
Needless to say, the amount of scary ingredients in these sweets will no doubt put some of you off. There is some 'allergy advice' on the packaging which states that the fizzy sweets contain sulphur dioxide. There is also more than one type of acid listed in the ingredients list, and if I am being honest, I probably wouldn't give these to my kids if I had any. That said though, I enjoy sweets like this from time to time and would probably buy these particular ones again in the future.
The nutritional information on the packaging informs me that 100g of these sweets will provide 324 calories and NO fat - does this mean that they are healthy then?! ;-) (I wish!!)
A top class product in my view - and they offer brilliant value. 5 out of 5 from me!
My neice visited today with her little boy and when they'd gone I noticed he'd left behind a bag of sweets from Asda, I am not a big sweet eater but since they left these have been calling me so here I am throwing caution to the wind with this packet of Fizzy Cherry Cola Bottles.
They're really very tasty, they are shaped like the Cola Bottles my daughter used to buy loose as a child and covered in large sugar granules. The bottle fizzes nicely in my mouth, the sugar dissolves and leaves me with a chewy jelly sweet that is both sweet and slightly sour at the same time.
The flavour is much the same as Cherry Coca Cola in that it has a strong cola taste which is infused with a synthetic cherry flavour, in these sweets though it's sweet and makes the whole sweet seem fruity and tangy.
I really like these sweets, they have a lovely chewy texture but not so much that they make my jaw ache like some sweets my granddaughter bought from Sainsbury's recently. They are full of flavour and even once the sour sugar has gone the jelly of the sweet itself is still flavoursome and good right up until the moment I swallowed it.
A 100g bag contains 324 calories and absolutely no fat at all, this product obviously contains a lot of sugar but once in a while for a treat I don't see the harm. If you're wondering, 100g is approximately 25 small bottles which I thought was perfect for a Friday night munch. For 38p, which is what these sweets cost, you cannot go wrong can you?
As alot of you will know I love anything that has a cherry taste, wether it is juice or wether it is sweets, I go mad for them.
So when I was walking around my local Asda and noticed these on the shelf I had to give them a try. The cost of these are very reasonable at roughly 38p for a single pack, or sometimes when they are on offer you can get 3 for £1. The contents of the bag weigh 100g, and this gives you roughly 20-30 sweets, I dont know exactly as I didnt couunt them, probably because they didnt last long enough!
The taste of these are excellent, but not as fizzy as I would have liked, sometimes anything with a cherry flavour can be really over powering, but not these the taste is just enough, but unfortunately I find these very addictive, so end up eating the whole packet in one go.
The nutritional value is as follows:
calories - 324
Protein - 5.0g
Carbohydrates - 76.1g
of which are sugars - 76.0g
fat - nil
As you can see these are mostly made of sugar, so not really good for younger children to have alot of these. But the good bonus is that they dont have any fat in them which is my excuse when I have to explain to my fiance why I eat them all and he never got any. oooppsss. If you are giving a few of these to children, then one good thing is that there is no artificial colours or flavours.
The packet is not all that exciting, it is mostly red witht he name of the product on the front, and it has a see though panel at the bottom which allows you to see all of the lovley delicious sweeties inside, this is just so that your mouth will water and then you feel the need to buy them.
I love these sweets and have been eating them for years now, just make sure that if you are going to buy any of them that you are in the shop before me, otherwise you might not get any!
As I have been reviewing Asda's brand of children's sweets is was of course a bag of Asda branded sweets that I bought for watching with a film last night. The bag I bought was Asda's Fizzy Cherry Cola Bottles and once again I was impressed with what I got for my money.
The cola bottles cost 38p a bag and can be bought on offer alongside any other 2 Asda brand children's sweets for £1. The bag is pink in cola and has a large purple cola bottle on the front. The bottom of this cola bottle is see-through allowing you to see the sweets inside and cutting across the middle is the words "Fizzy Cherry Cola bottles" in a mixture of black and deep purple writing. The front of the pack also tells you, twice in fact, that the sweets inside contain no artificial colours or flavours.
The pack itself has a sweet sugary smell when opened, which is complimented by a subtle hint of cherry. The smell is not at all sickly and is relatively enticing. Each bag contains 100g of sweets, which in my case amounted to 25 fizzy cherry cola bottles, which I thought was quite reasonable. The cola bottles compared to other cola bottle brands are about average in size. The bottom of the bottles is a purpley black colour and the top is a reddish colour. They are also coated in a fizzy, sour sugar.
Now for the taste test: the bottles are definitely fizzy, which is an extreme positive for me. They also have a strong fruity taste as well as the subtle more well-known cola taste. I have to say that these two flavours compliment each other very well and the sugary coating is not too extensive that it burns your tongue or thickly coats on your teeth but just enough to give them a little kick.

For me therefore these cola bottles are perfect. They not only taste great but also do not cost the earth and come in the right sized bag for a little treat. The sweets are brilliant for people of all ages, children especially will love the sour taste of the cola bottles and parents will love the fact that the sweets are free of artificial nastiness. So go on give them a try.
