I can't believe anyone has given these sweets a 5* review.
As a child, these were my favourite sweets. Tangy, fizzy and pretty damn good. When I started seeing them on the shelves again, I was pretty happy (despite being 30 years older!)
However, I might as well have been buying chocolate such was the difference between the 'new' and poor versions, in comparison with those which I used to love.
They're sweets. I don't want to see 'natural ingredients' or 'no added colour'. If I wanted something healthy, I'll have a banana. Parents who buy hyperactive children sugary sweets shouldn't.
Sweets are sweets. Don't mess with them. Let the health freaks buy healthy foods and let the rest of us, who enjoy exercising and having a treat now and again, buy sugary sweets.
Very, very frustrating. I'm writing to Bassetts as we speak....
