Ice Cream Chewits
Advantages: tasty sweets, good value
Disadvantages: not easy to find
A few days ago at work I decided to nip out to the local shop and go in search of a sweet treat. Rather than opt for my usual chocolate bar I spotted packets of chewits which I had loved as a child and certainly could not resist buying some when I saw they had the ice cream flavor which I didn't even realise they still made.
I purchased a packet of the ice cream flavor chewits from a local independent store for £0.39 which I thought was a pretty reasonable price for a pack of sweets.
The sweets are all individually wrapped and held together in a strip with a thick, cream coloured, waxy paper wrapper. The wrapper is made to look like vanilla ice cream in a waffle cone and has a picture of the chewits dragon character on the front. The packet also contains information about the sweets including ingredients listings, nutritional information and that the sweets contain no hydrogenated fat and are suitable for vegetarians.
The sweets themselves are shaped into small squares and white in colour. The sweets smell very sweet and quite strongly off vanilla. The sweets as the name suggests are chewy, although they are still quite soft so you do not feel like you are going to break your teeth when you chew them. They are quite sweet but they do taste creamy and of vanilla just like vanilla ice cream. These sweets are very Moorish indeed and it is hard to resist not eating the whole packet.
These ice cream chewits really reminded me of my childhood and are great sweets that I thoroughly enjoy and would certainly recommend anyone to try.
Summary: A blast from the past!
