Today's Review: Barratt Dip Dab Softies

Not content until all sweets are available in soft chewy forms, Barratt have now turned the classic Dip Dab into Softies, meaning you can get that sherbet/lolly combo without the mess. Or can you? Well, no, you can't. I love a Dip Dab, and this is not a good representation. They've tried to emulate it with these lemon and strawberry sour sweeties, but the flavours are off, the lemon just ain't right, and the strawberry doesn't pack nearly as much punch as that little round lolly. They are soft at least, they're definitely chewable, and they grew on me after a few sweets, but I'd rather go for a real Dip Dab over these, even if I do end up covered in sherbet. Oh well, they can't all be as good as Drumstick Squashies.

My rating: 2/5


  1. Well thats just silly - the whole point of dib dabs is the dibbing and the dabbing...

  2. Well said. This is an outrage. This I'm concerned could be the beginning of the end. No dib and no dab just isn't good enough. I'm going to have to stop as I'm too emotional .
