Rated 3 out of 5 by from Something's 'off' with the green ones Haven't had a packet of FP's in ages (not since the recipe change) but bought one recently and immediately noticed that the green ones have an overly bitter taste, in fact I'd go as far as to say they're not pleasant to eat. No idea why this is as the other colours all taste fine. Has certainly put me off buying more in the future...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why not both? Why not just add a vegan friendly variety? There is no need to change the original product. You have alienated a huge proportion of your customers with an inferior product, to please a minority. Not very clever.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disgusting Why have you changed the recipe of this product. It tastes disgusting. We cannot all eat or want to eat vegan. Why force this unhealthy crude on to us. This product is unhealthy for the planet and people.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from so sad I am a huge fan of fruit Pastilles and buy boxes of them so I never run out. This has been my favourite sweet for as long as I can remember. I was devouring at least 3 tubes every day until you changed the recipe. Taste and texture is all wrong and I can eat no more. devastated!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Get worse over time I bought a few tubes of these at Heathrow in the summer. They are not available where I live, so each year I usually buy a few packs to eat over the coming months. I was terribly disappointed with the new ‘vegan friendly’ recipe but thought I might get used to them over time. Three months later they are still overly sweet, still too soft and still stick to my teeth. The old recipe would keep well in a sealed plastic box. Even worse, the awful new ‘vegan friendly’ pastilles get softer and even sort of sweaty over time. they used to be the perfect sweet to keep in a bag or pocket when travelling. Now they just get disgustingly soft and damp and are inedible. I appreciate that some vegans who haven’t eaten Fruit Pastilles for years are saying they like them, but they are not a spot on the old version. Please, Rowntree’s, look at these terrible reviews and give your loyal customers the old ones back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed I buy these as a rare treat, I have always loved fruit pastilles and are always my go to , however after buying them for the first time in a while I noticed both texture and flavour are now completely different and not the same sweet I have always loved , I then noticed the packaging stating now vegan friendly ....I understand opening the market to more people but why could you not make a vegan version as well as the original?! ...you have just closed the market to your long term fans as I will no longer be buying them as they currently are . Massively disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unpleasantly sticky texture Unfortunately these now have the unpleasant overly soft and sticky texture synonymous with a gelatine free sweet. These are no longer on our shopping list which is a shame as they used to be a favourite.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Saddened Sadly there is no comparison between the original recipe and this new one. Longest lockdown worldwide has been rather tough, and it is little treats that one get through it. These were not a treat. Nothing like a proper fruit pastille and now indistinguishable from every other "fruit pastille" out there. These are no longer special. Please make both vegan and non versions available - these are just awful. They made me sad.
