Biona Organic Tutti Frutti Gums (Close Up)

The Verdict

There were 17 sweets in the packet, the sweets were fruit shaped and coloured and the packet consisted of the following selection:

  • lime (6)
  • lemon (2)
  • raspberry (1)
  • cherry (3)
  • grapefruit (2)
  • apple (3)

 The sweets were very attractively packaged and the tutti frutti gums themselves looked really nice.  The rest of the review is a bit of a mixed bag (a bit like the sweets!!).  Myself and one of the girls didn’t like them at all, we didn’t like the flavour or the texture.  The texture reminded me of the inside of those horrible fruit sugar coated jellies that your gran eats at Christmas all squishy and sloppy (urgh).  One of my daughter’s absolutely loved them, she really liked the way her teeth just cut through them, and the other liked the flavour but not the texture.  Last but by no means least, my husband; he wasn’t really overkeen on them either and thought they didn’t taste of fruit they just tasted sweet.

When you do a product review and you get such mixed results it just highlights that you can’t please everyone all of the time!

 We bought these tutti frutti gums to review when we visited The Allergy Show.

Suitable for: Vegetarians and Coeliacs (celiacs), Lactose Intolerant, Gluten Intolerant.

Biona Organic have a vast range of products from breads and cereals, cakes and biscuits, spread and confectionery to name but a few.  Biona have got to be commended for their ethics and commitment to production standards.  In my experience of  sampling many allergy friendly products for reviews I think it is safe to say that the lack of certain ingredients can sometimes result in a less pleasing result than the non free from equivalent.  My experience of trying the tutti frutti gums hasn’t put me off Biona Organic and I will certainly be checking out some further products from their range.   Watch this space…..
