“Inedible classic”

Written on: 14/03/2017 by MaximillianRamos73 (1 review written)

How disappointing, i used to come to the UK and take back kilos of these, just come home to live and of course get my favourite sweets, What the heck, I had to check if the pack had been contaminated, these are rubbish and taste of coconut and menthol of mint, there is a definite chemical taste which is a not fruity. Whatever you have done Maynard's, you have made these classic British sweets totally inedible and unpleasant. Don't mess with classics of childhood, you will only fail and I'm not… Read Full Review

“My all time favourite is now a vile tasteless sweet!”

Written on: 19/01/2017 by CraigB23 (1 review written)

How did this sweet get approved by the board of sweet tasters to be a winning idea? They have taken a tasty juicy loving sweet, and created a vile, tasteless piece of rubber! Maynards, sack your tasters, and go back to making tasty sweets as that is what bring profits, not replacing an ingredient that ruins your product. Read other reviews and make an educated change back!… Read Full Review

“Maynard Sports Mixture - whats happened?”

Written on: 05/12/2016

Agree with everyone else on here. Used to love these, but now they are just awful. No flavour, just soft chewy gum. Not at all pleasant and I won't be buying them again… Read Full Review

“The Soft Option”

Written on: 01/12/2016 by Loxian (1 review written)

I could have coped with the change in flavours or colours but not the texture, but these are just too soft now so I have stopped buying them. Plus there seems to be I'd alotof the same colours in a single pack. I'd actually pay twice as much for such a sweet that will last a bit longer. The manufacturers should think about this. It's not all about price. A quality product will sell itself… Read Full Review

“Absolutely tasteless rubbish!”

Written on: 14/11/2016 by cansasslam (1 review written)

I thought Wow! £2.00 for a 460g box of my old favourites sports mixtures, but alass they are not the old favourite as I know them, they are tasteless inedible lumps of coloured gel. Why is everything these days compromised in quality and ingredients? Obvious its a far cheaper substituted recipe. Outright scandalous to use the old name of a product when it is a complete new recipe. Vile and a waste of money. my advice save your £2.00 and buy something else you won't have to try hard to get… Read Full Review

“Unbelievably bad Carburys do it again .”

Written on: 20/08/2016 by 159Roche (1 review written)

Coming from a home that loved not just SPORTS GUMS but also a good few Carburys products we now find the changes to all products associated with the Carburys brand have cheapened and distorted the taste of all products tasted so far . NO MORE PURCHASES GUARANTEED from this family. … Read Full Review

Honestly, I had to check to make sure that the bag wasn't out of date!! Absolutely disgusting... Once the bag is opened, an overpowering smell of chemicals hits you. The sweets themselves taste vile. Used to buy 2/3 packets a week. Won't be buying them again… Read Full Review

“Nothing like original Lions !”

Written on: 04/03/2016 by Jeeffers (1 review written)

Tried a few packets of Maynard's sports mixtures recently and came to the same conclusion most reviewers have expressed.Yes the flavours are nothing like the old Lions ones and they are not nice.However just today I bought a packet of Lions football gums and as I write this I am in heaven with these tasting exactly the same as Lions sports mixtures of the good old days.Unfortunately I am keeping the place of purchase a secret to protect my supplies!!They are cheap too and from a well known shop… Read Full Review

“WHAT HAS HAPPENED!!!”

Written on: 13/02/2016 by Gggardner (1 review written)

Having been a massive fan of sports mix for more years than I care to remember I always have a dish full on the shelf near where I sit. I bought 4 boxes just before Christmas in wilkinson so to make sure I had plenty. However, I certainly shan't be buying them again! What have maynards done?! There is absolutely none of the fabulous fruity flavour in the new ones and the pineapple one which is everyone's favourite has completely disappeared. Poor texture and no flavour, they are horrible! Both… Read Full Review

I was very disappointed when I tried to buy my usual supply of lions sports mixtures and could only get maynards when I tried them myself I didn't like the taste they tasted as if the fruit flavour had been watered down and they tasted like cheap softer gums definitely not the quality you would expect from sports mixtures … Read Full Review
