Today's Review: Fruit Pastilles Orchard Fruits

It's a new kind of fruit pastilles, and this one hosts a variety of fruits that grow in orchards. The trouble is that I'm not sure exactly what they're supposed to be.

The colours are probably a good place to start. We have green, orange, red and purple pastilles, but the ingredients say the only fruit juices present are apple and grape. This leaves orange to apparently be some strange hybrid of flavours that is meant to taste something like oranges. It doesn't. In fact, all these pastilles taste a bit off, certainly not like some quaint orchard fruit. The green is probably the nicest, with a nice smooth flavour. The orange just tastes like no orange sweet should taste, and the red and purple are actually quite sickly in their sweetness. It was a good try from Rowntrees, and these sweets are quite nice, but they're not a patch on the original pastilles.

My rating: 3/5
