“Sports mix not inedible wine gums!”

Written on: 19/05/2017 by AlfredoDonahue338 (1 review written)

I have always been a massive fan of Lions Midget Gems and Sports Mixture so imagine my surprise when I grabbed a bag of Maynards Bassetts Sports Mix! The bag looked the same but that was the only similarity....soft chewy almost wine gum like and lacking in flavour and texture! I couldn't believe what I was eating. Very sad to see a classic sweet reduced to this. Sadly I will not be buying them again! I just hope that the the Midget Gems do not suffer a similar fate as no one will buy… Read Full Review

“Tasteless”

Written on: 16/05/2017 by MariamBlackburn (1 review written)

Another victim of government led targets to reduce sugar, Maynard's have brought this product to its knees. Gone are the rich fruity flavours of old and distinctive texture. Sports mixture used to be a joy to eat years ago now they just taste bland and there is very little difference in taste between different color sweets. They are now much softer and the taste is very bland, like others have said after chewing it leaves an unpleasant menthol like aftertaste. We can only show our… Read Full Review

“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

“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
