Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Fruit-tella Light Fruitgums Confirmed sighting: Fruit-tella Light Fruitgums
Posted: 14:09 Fri 11-Nov-2005. Price: 99p/ 100g bag. Location: Tesco, Sheffield. Sub-flavours: Also Fruit-tella Light 90g bags with orange, lemon and strawberry flavours. Nutritional unusualness: Sugar free, "33% less calories than ordinary wine gums".
"charl" reports: Wow, it's almost like Fruit-tella are run by the masons and they read Snackspot! Whilst sadly sucking on a Fruit-tella Caramel I stumbled across these alternatives. The orange and lemon Light chews are both fantastic (the lemon one is almost exactly like the old lime Opal Fruit) and the Fruitgums are pleasant and quite gummy-tense. Welcome back into my heart Fruit-tella! (Now can another company please come out with something sugar free? I'm bored of these already.)

..."charl" concludes a chewier-than-usual week here at Snackspot, while - as if in answer to her request for more low-calorie lines - The Grocer magazine reports that: Burton Foods are adding Delights (individually wrapped biscuits, in chocolate or coffee varieties) and Nibbles (mini bags of chocolate-coated biscuit rings in plain or honeycomb flavours) to their Cadbury Highlights range; Fisherman's Friend are apparently promoting their "No Added Sugar" Cherry Menthol flavour as their "new friendlier flavour", ideal "for beginners"; and Swizzels Matlow have launched a "Go Zero" selection of sugar-free children's sweets, comprising a Cyber Stick lolly, a "Lolly Mix" bag, and the "raspberry flavour" Cyber Chew Bar.

Comment: Why everyone is so happy consuming artifical sweetners over sugar? Seems a bizarre way to tackle a diet issue with chemicals.

Comment: Also, if sweeteners get used in so many nasty supermarket-brand drinks and stuff because they're so much cheaper than sugar, how come sugar-free sweets are twice the price of normal ones? 44864 9
