These Rowntrees’ Fruit Bottles were made with 25% fruit juice, of which included apple juice, lemon, lime, cherry, blackcurrant and orange, amongst the other ingredients, as well as having no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. The 45g bag had 149 calories, with 0.2g fat and 22.9g sugar. “Pretty high in sugar!” I hear your mind cogs clunking, but remember; these gummies are sweets and were made with 25% fruit (and fruit comes with its own supply of sugar). The bottles were the same size as regular Cola Bottles, but without the sour sugar coating.
There was a smiley face on each bottle, with four flavours to choose from, all of which had mild hints of apple juice. The dark red bottle had a tangy blackcurrant taste, whereas the light red bottle had a pleasant gentle cherry flavour. The green bottle had a sour lemon and lime flavour, and the orange bottle, which was my favourite flavour of the bag, had a good honest orange tang to it. I munched these squidgy Fruit Bottles on a sunny afternoon whilst stuck at work, and they were a refreshing boost against the heat in the office and the mountain of dull paperwork. For a short while they made me feel young again, so thank you Rowntrees. ;-)
