These are the kind of things I should probably have 'grown out of' by my age but I still love them as much as I did when I was a child. Retro sweets are always a winner with me! Rainbow drops are basically like rice crispies coated in sweet coloured candy. Sizes of bags and cost varies between different shops but I normally get a large bag (bizarrely I cannot find a weight anywhere on the packet?!!) from Morrisons for around 40p, they really do tend to be pretty cheap. As they are coated with sugar / candy they are really nice and crunchy on the outside as well as being very sweet. Despite their lovely bright colourful appearance they state they ...

Until very recently I had completely forgotten that Rainbow drops ever existed but the other day my daughter dropped of my granddaughter for me to look after for a bit and in her bag for a treat for her was Matlows Rainbow drops. When I gave my granddaughter some I could not help but have a handful myself and they are as good as I ever remember. For anyone that does not know, Rainbow drops are a cereal type snack, I suppose you could say they look a bit like brightly coloured rice crispies. They are very sweet due to their sugary coating and they are fairly fattening too with nearly 300 calories in 100g of the snack. My granddaughter just gets few ... Read the complete review

Rainbow drops are sweets from the makers Swizzels Matlow. They are sugar coated puffed maize and rice. They are very brightly coloured hence the name rainbow drops. They are packaged in a very brightly coloured bag. The different bright colours of the rainbow drops are shown on the bottom of the packet. Rainbow drops is written in funky red lettering. There is also information such as low fat,suitable for vegetarians and no gluten. The great thing about these rainbow drops is that you get loads in a packet. So if you can bear to eat the tiny puffs one by one a packet can last for ages. They are very nice, tasty and colourful and are very ... Read the complete review

I bought two packets of these from Poundland last week. It was a £1 for two XL bags which contain 80g. I haven't had these since I was a child. Rainbow drops are made by sweet manufacturer Swizzels Matlow. The packaging is blue with a rainbow going through the middle. The packet also has a window and through this you can see the brightly coloured drops. For those of you who never had Rainbow drops as a child they are little puffs of sugared rice that are brightly coloured. The first thing I noticed when I opened the packet was the smell, they remind me of cereals. When you eat these they simply melt in the mouth. They are very sweet, even though ...

Rainbow Drops are delicious snacks, which you can buy commonly at newsagents and certain supermarkets. You can get small packets for around 30p. The packets are purple with a bright and light rainbow on the front and the Rainbow Drops logo too. There is a transparent part at the bottom where you can see through to the Rainbow Drops inside to get a feel for what they are. They are multicoloured crunchy balls in colours such as yellow, orange, purple, green and red - basically the colours of the rainbow. The pieces have a texture similar to that of some kind of puffy popcorn such as sugar puffs. They are a firm texture but are soft too. When you pop ... Read the complete review
