“Tastes horrible”

Written on: 31/10/2017 by vrRyan1980 (1 review written)

What have bassets and maynards done to Sports mixture? It used to be flavoursome, hard (ish) and be a real treat to eat. Now it is totally different. Why change it ???? It now tastes bland and a bit like chewing plastic packaging. In fact, we had a packet of wine gums as well and both tasted exactly the same. NOTE TO MAKER - IF I WANTED WINE GUMS I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT WINE GUMS BUT I DIDN"T, I WANTED SPORTS MIXTURE. NOW BOTH TASTE THE SAME, HORRIBLE !!! YOU HAVE JUST LOST ME AND COUNTLESS… Read Full Review

“What are you doing Maynard!!!!”

Written on: 29/10/2017 by Uneeqtactix (1 review written)

As I have just discovered after reading a few reviews on here. Have not read them all but I would expect them to be all of the same. I have been a huge fan of (lions) sports mixture for as long as I can remember, my dad often received a big (cash & carry) box for his Christmas & I would help myself quite frequently. Ever since then as I’ve grown older ive been buying bags of sports mix if I want a sweet fix, I love them, there’s nothing else that compares. I was annoyed when they removed… Read Full Review

“What are these”

Written on: 08/10/2017 by EfrainFuller (1 review written)

Currently away from home so friends and relatives are sending me comfy boxes to remind me of home. I told everyone that my favourite sweets are Sports Mixtures. That was until I tasted the latest pack sent out to me. They are completely different and everything about them has changed. I have now donated the other 2 bags to the local population as I cannot stomach them anymore. Cheers Maynards for ruining my favourite sweets… Read Full Review

“Another British Confectionery Brand Ruined!”

Written on: 12/08/2017 by HENDJANE (2 reviews written)

I have loved Sports Mix for many years. I've just bight a bag at my local Asia, eaten two and thrown them away! They've turned into wine gums with a different name! Waxy, rubbery, gummy, sticky, greasy... really horrible, but obviously cheaper to produce! Both copiers I tried tasked the same - of nothing. Even the shapes are indistinguishable. Really sick of traditional British confectionery brands being changed and cheapened… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/08/2017 by GregBurrows (1 review written)

Iam 57 was addicted to the taste of lions wine gums, and midget gems from childhood, Maynards took over Lions of Cleckheaton in West Yorkshire, and ruined them, the only lions recipe left was sports mix, they have now changed the recipe for sports mix, they are now really horrible soft and have a chemical taste, I must have been eating older stock as it appears by comments the recipe was changed a bit back, bought a packet yesterday, the bin is the only place for them now, bring Lions recipe… Read Full Review
