Now this one was review my other half was dying to help me do. In fact at one point I had to chase him around the flat to try and retrieve the jiffy bag that contained them. But there is one great thing about us between us we like mostly all sweets you could imagine. So this was one task we were both ready to jump feet first into, but as all things go nothing goes to plan, so here is my slightly delayed (thanks life I wanted to eat those sweets sooner) review on Sweet Junkies Sugar Free Sweeties!
Just visiting the Sweet Junkie site is like entering a new sweet filled world. Filled with the finest Retro Sweets you can ask for. But how about for those that need to lower the sugar intake they have but still want that sweet treat every now and again? Well how about trying out Sweet Junkies wonderful Sugar Free Range. Which are actually very yummy – if I hadn’t known they were sugar free I actually wouldn’t have guessed.
Rhubarb and Custard -As devoured by the other half. I couldn’t get much out of Ash as he ate these other than om nom nom . Now my other half is a complete sugar junkie so I crossed my fingers and prayed that they would pass the test as he popped the first one in his mouth. And they did! According to him they taste just like normal Rhubarb and Custard sweets and he would defiantly eat them again! (Which means order me some now please.)
Barley Twists - Mainly scoffed by me. I will admit I don’t think I have eaten Barley Twists before, but I may have been converted. Great sucking, crunching flavour.
Sherbet Orange - I’ve always loved Sherbet even from a young age I would run and grab sweets with the word sherbet contained, and yet again I am not let down by that fabulous word. The tangy orange mixes well with the sherbet in these oh so moreish sweets.
Orange and Lemons – Full of zesty flavour, and the small size is great for when you just want to have something smaller. Throat and Chest sweets defiantly gave us some get up and go - though neither us are liquorish fans so the last one was passed to my Mum who enjoyed everyone moment of that last one and then asked for some more.
But of course there is something more to a site than just the taste and quality of there goods – they can be 5 star but then it’s all let down by the service, or in online shopping awful navigation around a site. But there is no fear with these on Sweet Junkie the site is wonderfully laid out, and I love the fact they even have a page dedicated to dental advice. There sweets come beautifully packaged in cellophane packets to keep them all fresh. And the delivery was speedy.
Still not completely sure if Sweet Junkie is the sweet site for you? How about tweeting the lovely Michael on there tweeter account @sweetjunkie or having a natter with them over on facebook
