Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Mentos Rainbow Fruits Confirmed sighting: Mentos Rainbow Fruits
Posted: 20:07 Sun 18-Sep-2011. Price: 35p. Location: Asda. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"yorkhouse" reports: Have any Mentos Rainbow Fruits come your way yet? Usual Mentos but in seven fruit flavours - blackberry, strawberry, orange, watermelon, pineapple, raspberry and apple. (Finally a set of mixed fruit flavours which isn't more than 50% citrus.) The really unusual thing - there are precisely two of each flavour, together, in the same order that the packaging suggests they come in (rather than getting half a pack of lime and a couple of red and purple ones like most tubes of fruit pastilles etc...). So efficient that presumably these will turn out to be a German sweet.

...Thanks "yorkhouse" - I keep seeing ads for Mentos' 3 Layer Gum around, but no sign of the actual product, so perhaps this impressive efficiency doesn't extend to ruthlessly co-ordinating their distribution and marketing. Anyway, if you'd prefer a similarly mild-ish but 100% citrus fruit effect, I think it's Poundland that's currently stocking Tango Orange Chewy Bonbons (pictured here with some boiled sweets based on Robinsons fruit squash somehow). "Delicious" is Gobble Monkey's ever-entertaining verdict on Marks and Spencer's Newfangled sweet range (including Chineapple Punks and Fluke Pastilles), and I'm stretching today's fruit theme a little to include Foodstuff Finds' Sep 13 sighting of Nestle's Aero Christmas Tree, although I also spotted these Mince Pies in Sainsbury's on what was probably the last day of Aug. Happy Holidays, everybody!

Comment: Very nice - especially blackberry, watermelon & pineapple. Plenty of sweets in the tube, all good flavours. Also it's good to find a sweet product that hasn't virtually doubled in price in the last 6 months or so (eg Polos at 70p now).

Comment: Even better value at just 62p for a multipack of 5 full size packs in Morrisons. And in other chewy fruit sweet news, you can now get packs of Lime Chewits in WH Smiths. 89p for a multipack of 2 Orange, 2 Lemon and 1 Lime sticks. All very citrusy.

Comment: The Blackberry flavour is actually black grape. Mentos 3 gum is available in Tesco Express, Asda, Martins and some indepent newsagents
