I was recently sent these Jewellery Laces to try out, they're new at Asda, an interesting combination of candy necklace and laces. Inside you'll find liquorice style laces in various flavours, as well as some smaller shaped sweet charms. Each of those has a hole in the middle, so you can thread them onto the laces and create your own jewellery! Necklaces, bracelets, rings, the possibilities are... well, that's most of the possibilities. But it's a very neat idea.
These sweets taste good, that's the first thing I made sure of. They're all brightly coloured, with a lot of bold fruit flavours. I'd buy a bag of just the laces on their own, but these have the added bonus of jewellery, of course. Threading the charms on takes a bit of practice, and squeezing, but it's easy enough. I will say that there weren't too many charms compared to laces, you can't make every necklace chock full of charms. Tying them up is a bit of a pain as well, if you want to wear the jewellery you have to be careful not to snap the laces, but that's a small issue. I gave a pack to my daughter, and her and a friend spent a full hour making stuff out of them, that's more than you get from any other pack of sweets. A very neat idea that's a big hit with the kids, they just need to balance the charms and laces a bit more.
My rating: 4/5
