I was recently approached by the people at Jealous Sweets who asked me if I would like to try some of their new range of sweets to review, obviously I said yes! I didn't really know much about the company so I decided to do a bit of research.
Everyone loves to be given something precious – a thing of beauty to be admired. We’ve created a range of mouth wateringly moreish treats to tantalise your tastebuds and all our Jealous Sweets are beautifully crafted and like jewels they’re irresistible.
All our Jealous Sweets are 100% vegetarian, gluten free, full of natural fruit juices and free from artificial colours and flavours.
There are nine different jewel boxes in our range – all created for those with an eye for something special.
I expected these to be sour but I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were simply sweet and fizzy. The fizz worked perfectly with the sweetness to add a degree of interest and intrigue to these tasty little sweets. They came in a variety of fruity flavours, I particularly enjoyed the berry ones. Overall, these were simply delicious!
Once again, I loved these sweets. You really can tell that they use natural fruit juices rather than artificial chemicals and additives, the real taste of the fruits is perfect, the texture of the sweets is brilliant considering they are vegan, and you probably wouldn't be able to easily tell the different between these and regular sweets (I'm talking about texture because their flavour is by far superior!)
If you enjoy sour things, then you will absolutely love these! They are amazingly sour, yet still have plenty of flavour to satisfy you and make the experience delicious. They had a nice crunch from the crispy shell and a brilliant chewy quality from the inside. These came in what I can assume were berry based flavours, I think that this was a smart move because they would have been too strong otherwise!
