Today's Review: Rowntree's Randoms Rip'ems

These are a funny sweet, in fact, they're quite random. Phnar phnar. Contained in this packet are two strips of chewy candy, separated into four different flavours. The idea, obviously, is to rip 'em, because everyone needs a novel and exciting way to eat their sweets.

Unfortunately, it is kind of hard to discern the flavours, because they're not very nice. The packaging informs me that these strips contain 25% fruit juice, but the ingredients don't tell me what those fruits are. The colours suggest we have lemon, orange, strawberry and blackcurrant, but the resulting flavour is something like the elongated innards of jelly beans. So they're chewy, with the texture of a fruit winder, but with some weird flavours that leave a not too nice aftertaste. Still, they're not awful, still fruity, slightly juicy. They're just not very nice, and certainly nowhere near as nice as the regular Randoms.

My rating: 2/5
