Today's Review: Tango Cherry & Blue Raspberry Sour Mega Toobz


Tango seem to be churning out all kinds of weird confectionery, and I seem to find it dotted about all over the place, mostly in Home Bargains and pound shops. Today I picked up these Sour Mega Toobz. They're cherry and blue raspberry pencils, with a purportedly sour coating. Now, I love pencil sweets, they're like the next evolution of laces, and fondant is delicious, so I couldn't pass these up.


Well, "toobz" they certainly are, and their size could be described as "mega" compared to other pencil sweets, I suppose. They're fairly long, and there were quite a few of them in the bag, seeing as it only cost a pound. As for the sour? Well, not so much. There's a slight tang in the sugar, but my lips didn't even think about retracting into my face. Still, the flavours are certainly nice. They're not the boldest, but they're fruity, and the flavour choices are nice. Although the sugar on top isn't really that sour, at least there's not enough that it makes a load of mess. These certainly aren't the best pencil sweets I've tasted, but I won't turn my nose up at another pack.

My rating: 4/5

  8. Thank god I found this blog! Been freaking out all day. Googled these as a last hope before I went to the doctors. I have health anxiety so I was really frightened when I saw my stool was BRIGHT GREEN. They should really come with a warning!
