New Christmas Tubes from Swizzels Matlow

These are the new Christmas Tubes from Swizzels Matlow and I was recently lucky enough to be sent some for review.

Each tube contains 120g of family favourites Refreshers, Love Hearts or Drumsticks and they come in handy bags which are pretty easy to open so you can get straight in there!

I was like a big kid when I opened these and wasn't sure where to start, so I opted for a Drumstick lolly first.

These are the original flavour of Raspberry and Milk and contain no artificial colours...perfect! Personally, these aren't my faves but then I don't like milk so maybe thats why. I did however still try them and I have to say, they are pretty tasty with a good strength of flavour. The chewiness was just right and it came off the stick relatively easy too....always a bonus!

Next, I tried the Love Hearts which come in handy small packs containing 7 sweets...

Ever since I was a child, I have loved these sweets! Each has their own little message so you can choose which friend is more deserving, or use it as a hint to that boy you've always fancied but been too scared to ask out! Either way, theres great fun to be had with these and they taste absolutely gorgeous. Slightly powdery in texture, they dissolve quite easily in the mouth and the flavour runs throughout the sweet making them one of my faves.

Finally, I tried the Refreshers. I saved these for last as I knew once i'd had one, i'd fancy another, and another...

These small Refresher bars have a chewy lemon outer which conceals a very pleasant sherbet centre. The combination of the two is just heavenly. You do have to be a little careful as some of the sherbet tries to escape from the end, but once it's safely in your mouth you can just sit back, chew and enjoy!

I think you'll agree that these tubes look extremely eye-catching and would be ideal for kids (big and small) as Christmas stocking fillers....and at a very reasonable £1.00 each, they're definately worth it!! Drumsticks and Refreshers are available from Tesco and you can buy all 3 from Asda.
