“I remember picking up a packet today to relive the...”

Written on: 15/06/2009

Good Points
The packaging looks snazzy, I guess.

Bad Points
The sweet, which is the point of it, does not deliver. It does not taste like the original, they have some foul taste mixed in which makes them taste like cheap knockoffs. If it wasn't sold in a normal store I would've believed so, too.

General Comments
I remember picking up a packet today to relive the fond memories of these great sweets. Upon biting the first one I immediately noticed the off taste. Bassetts Refreshers just do not taste right. I'm getting sick of sweets altering recipes to use 'natural' ingredients when all they do is destroy the flavor, which is the POINT of buying them in the first place! If I want all natural I wouldn't be eating sweets in the first place.

I'm not sure if I'll ever look at a pack of Refreshers in the same way again. Seems these complaints are all in 2008 which makes me think that they didn't change the recipe :/

At least I still have my Atomic Sourballs...
