I have stated before in reviews, that I would much rather chewy sweets to huge bars of exclusive chocolates. I guess I have never grown up when it comes to my choice of confectionary. The sweeter, cheaper and stickier the better!! One of my all time favourite sweets are chewits. They have always been so popular with me. For one, they have always been alot cheaper than other sweets with a pack costing ten pence when I was a child. Now they are still very reasonable, particularly when purchased in pound stores. I recently bought a pack of five for a £1 which is fantastic value. Although not particularly great for your teeth. Chewits were first brought ... Read the complete review

There are days when shopping is just the pits. It's not where you want to be and the store (whichever one you are in) is filled with screaming brats who's parents aren't controlling them, people talking noisily on mobiles whilst leaving their trolley parked across the isle in your way, and others who dither right where you need to be taking three hours to chose which packet of whatever is the right one to put in their basket. The day I bought these Chewits was one of THOSE days! I'd been to Tesco, and faced the hoards, and then nipped into Farm Foods for a few bits that Tesco sells for too much money. The store was much quieter, and so I started to calm down and ... Read the complete review

Retro Sweet Alert! Wow! Spotted this blast from the past on the shelves of my local Tesco supermarket. Multipack of 5 x 30g packs of Chewits in assorted flavours (Strawberry, Blackcurrant & Fruit Salad). A bargain at £1.09. In the basket they went. Now, to be honest, I've not had these since I was at school, which was (ahem) a few years ago. However, I have very fond memories of these chewy rascals, apart from when I had my brace fitted and I had to avoid certain sweets for a wee bit. No Chewits, no Toffos..... Oh the misery! Anyhoo, I couldn't wait to try these again. No really, I couldn't and ripped open the packet and stuffed ... Read the complete review

If I had to choose one sweetie, that reminded me most of my childhood, it would have to be Chewits. It really is amazing, that they are still around to be enjoyed today, when so many others have disappeared into history. Chewits are a square, chewy, medium soft candy, which comes in a variety of flavours. They first appeared in 1965 and were originally produced in Southport, but have been manufactured in Slovakia since 2006. The original flavours were strawberry, blackcurrant, banana and orange. My favourites, were and still are the strawberry ones. The wrapper of Chewits has changed a bit since the above picture. My strawberry ones come in a bright ... Read the complete review

I hadn't had Chewits since I was a kid, so when I spotted a pack of 7 packs of Strawberry flavoured chewits for £1 at my local Lidl I just had to get some! Chewits are made by a company called Leaf, not Handy Candy as Dooyoo have put in the product title (Handy Candy is just a website that sells them online). Strawberry Chewits are described as strawberry flavour chewy sweets. In fact, they're quite similar to Starburst (which used to be known as Opal Fruits when I was a kid), except that Starburst some in packs of milti-flavours, where as these are commonly packed in just one flavour and the ones I'm reviewing are strawberry flavoured. However, ... Read the complete review
