Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ruined! I've been happily munching my way through two bags of these a week ever since I gave up smoking 12 years ago. But all of a sudden they're barely recognisable. The crunchy sugar layer has been replaced with sugar that disappears in an instant. The texture has changed completely - it's now soft, horribly sticky and has lost all it's bite and resistance. Even the flavours seem to have changed. At first I thought I had a dud bag, or a cheap fake - but no! You've ruined the product. You've also cured my 'addiction' - but I really miss the old Fruit Pastilles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vegan Fruit Pastilles - YEEEEEES! Thank you so much for getting rid of the dead animal gunk in your fruit pastilles. I can now start eating your sweets again. :-) They are delicious.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What have they done I have just eaten my very first fruit pastille, only to discover that they are tasteless blobs of softness, then I notice they are now suitable for Vegans, I have loved these for 60 years, I hope that people boycott this obvious PC madness I will never purchase another product from this company. So SAD.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unrecognisable. Fruit pastilles have always been a sentimental favourite of mine, having purchased them since I was a small child. Yet regretfully the new vegan flavour is completely unrecognisable from the old one. It is akin to the off-brand sort one could find at Aldi. The unmistakable firm crunch experienced upon taking a bite is entirely missing, and the sweets are considerably softer than before. Given that a large percentage of how we perceive and experience satisfaction in our food comes from the texture and feel of the bite, I can only conclude that the new flavour is vastly inferior to the old. It deeply saddens me, you may argue that it is only confectionary, yet it has been my favourite snack for years. A title I fear it may no longer posses. Do not mistake my criticism for disdain towards the inclusivity of vegan products. I would welcome the idea of introducing vegan fruit pastilles along side the old flavour, allowing for the best of both worlds. More people enjoying the sweets is always a good thing in my opinion. I am clearly not alone in my opinion. Bring back the old recipe alongside the new and make everyone happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What have you done to fruit pastilles? We loved fruit pastilles, but not any more. Why are they so much softer than before? They stick to your teeth and are generally unpleasant in the mouth. I’m told you’ve gone vegan - please give us the original back!!! ☹️☹️☹️
