Rowntrees Randoms were introduced less than 3 years ago and now Jelly Aliens,Sour Faces and Very Berry Jellies are the newest members.

Here is what we thought of the new sweets:

Sour Faces:

The kids love picking out the sweets and guessing which face part they got. After the first sour taste you can really taste the fruit. Nice and easy to chew(I hate jelly’s that take forever to chew). Me and my two youngest kids agreed these are the best jelly sweets we have ever had.

Very Berry Jellies:

Great fruity taste with lots of similar colours,nice and easy to chew.

Jelly Aliens:

A nice variety pack with lots of colours and different ones to choose from nice and fruity.

This is what stars we all decided on:

I love these old pictures reminds me of being a kid. Don’t they remind you of being a kid too!?

Rowntrees sent me some sweets to try and this is what I thought of their new sweets. Growing up I have always been a big fan of Rowntrees my favourite being Fruit pastilles

How long can you Keep a Rowntree Fruit Pastille in your mouth without chewing?

    When choosing the Antique Basin Taps, one should shop around before purchasing a specific item. There is always a tendency to find something that may sometimes look better or be priced in a more pleasing way than the purchased one.
