“ Brand: Morrison's / Type: Mice „
I've bought this pack of sweets from Morrison's as I like them a lot and they are part of there 3 for £1 deal, which makes them very good value for money.
This bag of sweets comes in a pink polypropylene bag that is 16 cm x 11.5cm in size. The front of the bag has a couple of pictures of the mice, with faces drawn on which should appeal to children (and adults). There is a small clear window that lets you see the white mice that are in the bag. On the front it also has "No Artificial Flavours or Colours" which is more targeted towards parents than children. Each bag contains 70g of the small white mice.
Each white mouse is off white in colour and is formed in the rough shape of a mouse. They are 4cm x 2cm x 1.5cm in size and you get about 25 in each bag. On first tastes they come across as being very sweet and the mouse is quite hard so you have to really bite on it. The flavour is a lot sweeter than normal white chocolate and I find that it can be a little overpowering sometimes. The amount in the bag is enough to last me most of an afternoon when working as they have a very sweet, if not slightly sickly taste. I can't eat too many in one go.
On looking at the ingredients, it can be seen that they don't contain much at all. There are seven in all and even though it doesn't say, I suspect sugar is the main ingredient. Per quarter of a pack, they contain 10.3g of sugar (!) and 5.1g of fat. They are definitely not a healthy treat at all and not the greatest for your teeth either. However as a treat every now and then they aren't too bad.
Overall I am going to give these 3/5 as they are a nice treat to eat over an afternoon, but I find the taste a little overpowering sometimes and they are very unhealthy for you.
Thanks for reading.
