    .......are virtually tasteless these days. What have they done to them?

    I can recommend Co-op's own brand - a bit chewy but good flavour - for a long journey.
    They travel well, like a good Beaujolais!!!

    M and S wine gums are good. But then they're not just wine gums they're M ans S wine gums. Tesco's are very good too, and you get a lot for your cash.
     
  5. Wine gums are a mighty fine confection. Just pop one in your cheek, let it dissolve, and hey presto, sugar spike!
    They're chewier than they used to be but I prefer that...

    Maynards Wine Gums used to be as tough as bullets ( especially the black ones) and full of flavour.

    A very pale impersonation these days. Mind, considering my age I suppose I ought to be grateful they are softer now.

    Did anyone ever try their "Sour" Wine Gums ? Can you still get them ?

    If you want the bullet effect, then Rowntree's Fruit Gums are still around, and are as jaw breaking as ever.

    I prefer fruit pastilles myself!!!

    Quite fancy some Licorice (sp?) Allsorts actually!!
     
  12. I can't forgive Maynard's for messing with Lion Midget Gems and replacing the liquorice flavoured one with a horrid insipid blackcurrant confection. :rolleyes:
