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!!! ☹️☹️☹️

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the same So im an avid fan of fruit pastilles for many years at my peak id eat a large bag a day. Bit of a fixation with them. I have noticed recently three different flavours or consistency that's really put me off. Ive had tubes from a well known supermarket and they were hard and tastless then I had a bag and the sugar dissolved to fast and they went gooey to quickly, then today another tube from a well known supermarket and I can hardly taste any fruit flavour. Im hearing theres been a recipe change and I think you could at least let people know on the packet so we can avoid them

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What have you done! I've been buying Pastilles since I was a kid (and that's a long time ago). Recently bought a family bag and OMG what have you done? The texture is like glue - soft and 'claggy' and rather unpleasant. I read Rowntree have changed the recipe to appeal to the vegan market ...good luck on the one then.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Totally different taste what’s going on. Always purchase a multi pack of paper wrapped fruit pastilles that taste perfect as they should be never changed for years.... just brought a family sharing bag and they are clearly not the same taste and not right...they are much softer and don’t taste as fruity...why is there such a difference Just wrong in my opinion.
