Morrisons Fizzy Cola Bottles
Advantages: Good size bottles & plenty in a bag, quite soft & chewy with a nice sweet & sugary taste
Disadvantages: High in sugar (in case you hadn't already guessed!)
I thought I'd add these to DooYoo because they're my favourite version of fizzy cola bottles, even though I know my dentist wouldn't be happy if she knew I still eat kids sweets!
These are a Morrisons own make of the popular cola fizzy bottle sweets, and can be found hanging in their bags amidst the other sweets & choccies.
They are quite simply jellies that are shaped like cola bottles, and covered in sugar. Okay, so these may not be the healthiest things in the world, and although there's no health benefits per se to balance out their sugar content, at least the packet claims they contain no artificial colours of flavours.
They're sold in an 80g pinky/purple plastic hanging bag and cost 39p, though they're often on offer where you can buy 3 bags of kids sweets for £1. Price-wise I think these are good because they're good quality (if you can say that about sugar-laden jellies!), taste good and you get plenty in the packet.
The recommended serving is 25g, which is probably only about 4/5 bottles, though I would say kids and adults alike could probably munch their way through most, if not the whole bag, fairly easy. Each 25g contains zero fat, but 85 calories because of the sugar as there are 14% sugars per serving. Again, quite high in sugar, and we all know the issues with sugar, but as an irregular treat I think these are okay. Everything in moderation I guess is what I'm saying here, rather than advocating a diet high in sugar!
Fizzy Cola Bottles can vary quite a lot between brands, and I guess it depends on what you're after, but I would opt for these every time.
They are relatively long and quite floppy, rather than too hard or firm (no innuendo intended there!). This makes them much chewier, with an inside consistency which is also relatively soft.
The colour is graduated, so they're light at the top and darker at the bottom, reflecting the cola flavour. I think the flavour is just right; you know they're cola bottles, and they're very sweet because of the sugar, but they're not too tangy or sharp.
Overall, it's the general texture & appearance of these that are different from most cola bottles. They're quite large, but softer and chewier, with a sweet cola flavour and plenty of sugar, making them strangely tasty and addictive.
Summary: The tastiest fizzy cola bottles I've tried, & a good price, so they're definitely recommended
