I spotted these as I was leaving Tesco, as they were by the newsagent section, and made sure I purchased a bag before I left. There are actually a few themed Mr Men sweets but who could resist Mr Happy as a first try. The sweets are jellies, which all have a soft foam base.
They are called Mr Happy & Friends, but Mr Happy’s friends look just like him – except being different colours. I’m not sure they are characters from the books... but by all means correct me if I’m wrong in the comments below.
The contents of the bag:
Yellow (aka Mr Happy) – these ones were sweet, with a very mild citrus taste. There is no zingy lemon here, more a very sweet lemonade flavour.
Pink – This variety was probably the mildest in the bag, it had aspects of berry, but I couldn’t specify which fruit. I’d guess raspberry, but I wouldn’t put money one.
Red – This one had a light strawberry taste which was sweet and enjoyable.
Green - This was the strongest taste in the bag, and my favourite. It had a good defined apple taste, which was sweet and tasty.
Orange – Although mild, this was definitely orange. It was a sweet citrus flavour and almost honey like, very nice.
Each of the sweets have a nice texture, soft, but still with a decent amount of chew. The flavours are gentle, but easy going and still surprisingly moreish. I liked them and recommend them, particularly if you are fan of the books as they are a lovely tie in.
