    I totally didn't forget because I'm watching Dragonball... [Ep.33 out of 153.]

    "professional" review incoming!

    The box was almost completely full, which is awesome. Too often I find sweet boxes/bags half full of air.

    I ate them in the order of Pear, Orange, Strawberry with pink last [can't remember what the flavour actually is] because I'm weird like that.

    Pear was ok. The first one I had tasted a bit like bubblegum, I'm not sure why. The rest weren't flavoured that strong, but you could still taste something. That something wasn't pear... It was still nice though.
    Orange had a nice, medium strength. Not too strong, but you can definitely taste it. Nice and orange-y
    Strawberry... I wish I had left these to last. Medium/strong flavour, VERY noticeable, but not overpowering. [I've had sweets before that were TOO strong...]
    "Pink"... I actually can't remember what they tasted like. That's how much of an impact it made.

    They were mostly solid. Similar to Jelly Babies. However there were a couple that were more like Haribo.

    Overall, 8/10 - Would eat again... No seriously. Send more.

    True - The concept of the sugar mouse was totally alien to me. Maybe it's something to do with growing up in the slums of inner city Preston; we didn't have access to posh sweets like Mr Tom "lah-de-dah" Burkinshaw - it was all Black-Jacks and Mojos round our end (Mojos were 1/2p!)

    @rad reports Veggie Percy arriving at his gaff on the other thread.

    Some of you non-veggies got the veggie sweets this time - you cleaned us right out of everything except giant gobstoppers. Another trip to the Wonderful Warehouse of Wonderful Wonders in a Warehouse will be in order before the start of the competition.

    Annoying to hear that. Be patient for a couple more days as they'll hopefully still turn up - if nothing arrives in a couple more days let me know and we'll send some more.
