      You'll struggle to stop eating them

      I don't really eat much in the way of sweet stuff apart from ice cream, however I do occasionally buy something I rarely eat and my most recent unusual purchase was a packet of Fruit Pastiles. Fruit Pastiles are quite hard to come by in Poland but Marks and Spencers stock their own brand type and once I saw the packet I was drawn to them.

      Having been lured to them by its somewhat jazzy packaging and the bright coloured sweets, I noticed that it was very affordable. A 250g bag was only the equivalent of £1.50 and that represented good value in my eyes.

      The fruit pastilles are longer and thinner than the typical round ones by Rowntrees but the taste is fairly similar. The texture is not quite as chewy and the flavour perhaps a little less intense and sugary but they still have strong flavours and I soon found myself munching away on them quicker than expected with my only worrying being a lack of purple ones.

      When it comes to small rations of Fruit Pastilles then I'd definitely choose Rowntrees over these for their convenience and slightly more overpowering flavour but I'd definitely consider buying this pack in the future if I really felt like pigging out, my intentions were to eat half the packet and bring the rest home but I'd eaten them all by the time I got back and even had time to hide the evidence in a rubbish bin on the way home.

      I didn't bother reading the nutritional facts and I won't put them here, they're obviously not healthy and lets face it - you're not eating them for their vitamins.
