“Awful replacement”

Written on: 27/04/2022 by Mackem79 (1 review written)

My favourite sweets now downgraded to absolute rubbish "sweets". Can't detect any original liquorice taste whatsoever. An absolute travesty but not unexpected when Maynards ruined midget gems and sports mixtures by removing all liquorice taste from those sweets. Maynards why do you even exist anymore?… Read Full Review

“A Rotten change”

Written on: 04/01/2022 by 348Preston (1 review written)

It must be at least 15 to 20 years since i bought a bag / box of Bassetts Liquorice Allsorts and i must say i am shocked by the change of what was a great sweet selection to a very disappointing product it is now, the sweets are now to hard and sugary with a great loss of liquorice taste ,even my favorite sweet in the selection with the little blue aniseed on it is totally different im near sure they were made of black liquorice and now it appears they are just white gelatine inside, I would… Read Full Review

“Bassetts Liquorice Allsorts totally ruined!”

Written on: 29/12/2021 by Kellya257 (1 review written)

My Nearest and Deareat all knew how much I loved Bassetts Liquorice Allsorts and for the over 50yrs I have received them as Christmas and Birthday presents. Sadly no more. They are now too sweet, too hard, misshapen and taste nothing like they used too. In fact, they actually made me feel ill! Yet another example of changing what didn't need changing! I don't like anything about them! I am so disappointed!… Read Full Review

“You are ruining the brand..I feel insulted”

Written on: 31/10/2021 by Brileyt418 (1 review written)

This used to be a quality product now cheaply produced. Very bad selection, badly cut and misshapen, and inferior taste. I feel cheated. Do not give these as a present. Maynards are destroying the brand. A dumb thing to do for this iconic brand… Read Full Review

“Selection and quality ”

Written on: 02/05/2021 by Hawkes8 (1 review written)

I am, or was, a real fan of Bassets liquorice all sorts and am extremely upset and sad that the quality of the sweets have changed so much, also the selection in each bag is not so good with 4 sandwich all sorts, my favourites, in amongst yellow and pink rolls and bubbles. What’s going on? This isn’t the first bag that has been disappointing and I don’t think I will be rushing to buy any more. A sad out of “all sorts”… Read Full Review

“Disgusted”

Written on: 13/01/2021 by Pearlypaws (1 review written)

I bought a large bag of these a few days ago and was disgusted at their quality. I have been a lifelong fan of liquorice allsorts, preferring only to buy the Bassetts brand. The bag had a very poor selection choice with far too many of the sweets being the brown sandwich and the liquorice twist. There was only one pink sweet in the whole bag and only two coconut rolls.But my main complaint was that the majority of them were misshapen. Some I of the sandwich sweets were smaller than my… Read Full Review

“Not what I was expecting! Poor construction, low on...”

Written on: 25/12/2020 by Lyn1805 (1 review written)

This product should not be in a Bassetts branded box. They are now a poor cheaply made inferior product and worse than any I have bought from a market stall at a fraction of the price. They were 6 months away from their best before date but were dry and tasted stale. The layers of liquorice and fondant were not uniform and some layers incomplete. It's almost like they were made in a garage by someone trying to make a replica product and failing dismally. I will go to one of the big supermarkets… Read Full Review

“Awful - What on earth is going on”

Written on: 20/09/2020 by Kaseyz86 (1 review written)

Terrible texture, very little taste, not a real assortment, too many of the same colour, too many miss-shapes. What was once a premium brand has reduced it's standards to such an extent that I will never buy these again. It will only be a matter of time before more people become aware of the negative changes and I predict that sales especially in the UK will plummet. Please bring back the product to the original quality and recipe… Read Full Review
