I reviewed Rowntrees' Chewy Tots last month, which a nice variety on the original. Thanks to Kev of Kev's Snack Reviews for informing me of the existence of Tangy Tots as well, as I finally managed to track some down today. These are pretty much the same deal as Chewy Tots, and indeed Jelly Tots, they come in a pack of eight rather small bags. But portions are only a guideline, so the question is are these good enough to warrant gobbling all eight bags in one go?
Tangy Tots are much more like Jelly Tots than their crunchy brother. It's the same jelly inside, with all the same flavours. The only difference is that the sugar on top is sour, rather than simply sweet. It may not seem too interesting, but it certainly gives the sweets a nice tang, one that may not particularly last long, but at least there are some scrumptious Jelly Tots underneath once the sourness has faded. Tangy Tots are a simple variation on a classic, and are definitely worth a try.
