Today's Review: Refreshers Softies

Having reviewed Fruit Salad and Wham Softies already, I though it was time to go back and try out the last variety of these sweets on offer. These follow the same formula, they're soft versions of the classic sweets. Not the Refresher bars that the Squashies are built after, but the fizzy rolls of sweets. These certainly look the part, possessing the same shape as their brethren, but are they as good in soft form?

In short, no. The effort to replicate the actual sweets is quite impressive, all the flavours are represented with different colours, but the actual flavour of them is lost on me. I'm not sure what it is, but after a few chews what little flavour there was in these disappears to a sort of artificial sweet taste, which is funny, as the main ingredient is sugar. The texture is quite nice, but that's really all I can say in favour of these. They just don't taste nice. That strange, artificial taste just comes out strong, and hangs around for a while after. You're better off passing these up and just going for the classic sweets in the tube. They're much better.

My rating: 1/5
