Jealous Sweets review



Its always hard to find gluten, vegan and vegetarian sweet's. I saw Jealous sweets with the beautiful packaging, plus the care given to produce a quality product. I love chewy sweet's, so wanted to see if the flavour also texture is similar to a competitor.

Devour our Jealous Sweets. Others will be envious, even jealous, of those who have experienced the irresistible. Give our Jealous Sweets and they’ll be appreciated far more than boring toiletries, chocolate or flowers but be prepared to be slightly jealous when they won’t share their gift with you. All our Jealous Sweets are 100% vegetarian, gluten free, full of natural fruit juices and free from artificial colours and flavours. There are nine different jewel boxes in our range, all created for those with an eye for something special.

- Sour bean's 
They say - Squintingly sour beans to awaken all the senses. Super when you need to sharpen up your wits.

These bean's (typical size of a jelly bean) have a slight shell on the outside,it is not hardened and easily chewable. I chewed and let the sweet disolve in my mouth, to see the intensity of flavour within my mouth. When chewed the flavour is sour, sharp and disolves with no aftertaste or "sour burn" as i call it. When i had it dissolve and suck on it, definitely without question  it lasted longer and the sour flavour was throughout. I only had around 5-6 bean's as i felt my sweet tooth satisfied with this, im not sure if it is an ingredient that just made it passed or simply its natural. It certainly mean's you can enjoy the packet more then once and not feel like you will demolish the packet. 

- During a family day at my home, I passed out some sour bean's and asked the opinion's. Everyone liked the initial sour hit that comes if you bit or suck the sweet. The ones that chewed were asking for more as they were morish.  They were very impressed they were vegan(they are strict vegan), said it was impossible to find chewy sweets for vegan's or they are costly. All loved the Sour bean's that tried them and felt the packet would last a good few sitting's. 

- Tropical wonder 
They say Life’s a beach, so liven up dull moments with a cocktail of succulent, tropical goodness.

Now if ever there was a set of sweets that had myself and family near raving about, it was these babies. The texture is a little thicker then a normal jellied sweet, which meant it lasted longer. The taste was unreal, especially on the pineapple shaped sweet, it was juicy, exotic and vibrant with flavour.  When you consider how many sweet's you do get in a pack, it really work's out to good value. Especially if your looking to get more naturally made quality, that will give you everything you need to beat that sweet craving. They are so rich in flavour that you dont feel the need to eat a whole pack in one go, I just had 4 or so and felt quite happy to wrap the rest back up. 

I would happily purchase more from the range as they are great value from a point of flavour quality, texture and amount. It's probably the only packet of sweets ive happily put down, due to being satisfied my sweet craving was met and not because I felt sick etc. So that was a big eye opener as ive never experienced that before. Majorly positive experience as I will often have post sweet guilt, yet these sweet's I feel will give me the sweet craving I need. 

* The view's are also blind tasting, I did with family member's to obtain there unbiased opinion's.
