      Disadvantages

      Who says lollies are for children? Go on, grab one and give it a suck!

      These 'adult' Chupa Chups come in a box of six. The box is a bit like a cigarette packet and I think this is intentional as the idea is to have a lolly instead of a ciggy! The words '6 moments of peace' or 'Sucking relaxes' is in place of the health warning!

      I know they come in two varieties, there's a yellowy box but this review is about the reddish box, the ones that are more strawberry-flavoured.

      I bought mine in a shop called Home Bargains for only 24p so I have no idea how much they cost full price. I've seen the yellow box in Morrison's once but that was a while ago. Other than that, I don't think I've seen them in many other shops but I guess some health food shops might have them.

      The pack I bought had obviously been shipped from abroad as the whole pack was in Spanish (I think) but had a sticky label to inform me of the ingredients in English.

      Every lolly is smaller than a regular sized Chupa Chup and they have the usual plastic stick with the hole all the way through and a cellophane wrapper as usual.

      Each lolly has the very faint smell of fruit with a touch of herbs and this smell gets stronger when you start sucking them.

      They are a red colour with a white powdery look and they go a deeper red when sucking until they're more of a deep pink.

      While the lollipop is in your mouth it doesn't taste overly herbal but there's herbal aftertaste which isn't unpleasant. It has a fruity flavour with sweet hint of strawberry but the slight sourness of grapefruit.

      If you're a smoker trying to give up then I think these would help to keep your hands busy and they do have a strange calming feeling to them, whether it's because of the herbs, because you're sucking something or because of the comforting feeling of eating a childhood sweet I don't know but I like it!

      The allergy warnings say that it contains a source of phenylalanine and may contain traces of milk.

      Overall, I think these are a good adult sweet. I don't think children would like them because of the herbal flavouring to them.

      Ingredients:
      Sweeteners (isomalt, maltilol syrup, aspartne, acesulfame K), acidifier (citric acid, malic acid), flavourings, colourants (E162 E100), concentrated fruit pulp [1%] (apple, cherry, lemon, lime, strawberry, raspberry, peach, pineapple, orange, mango, banana, blackberry, blueberry, watermelon, kiwi), lemon balm extract [0.1%], linden extract [0.1%], emulsifier (soy lecithin).
