These new Rowntree’s Rip’ems came in a flat packet with two sets of four flavours of stuck together strips. First of all you have to rip open the packet, and then you rip off each yummy strip. Pretty violent sweets these. They’ll help take away any stress and strain you may have during your working or school day. There’s even a “serving suggestion” on the back of the packet for lassoing your finger before eating it (the lace, not the finger). With no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives, and 25% fruit juice in the ingredients, these sweets were pretty healthy sounding at 58 calories per strip. The orange coloured lace had a mild orange flavour, whereas the yellow lace had a lovely fruity pear flavour. The pink lace had a decent strawberry flavour, which was very pleasant, mild and natural, whereas the purple lace had a strong fruity and juicy blackcurrant flavour. Although I didn’t try any lassoing whilst at work when I ate these fruity strips, these Rowntree’s Rip’ems had the fun aspect of ripping and slurping them into my mouth, which made me feel young and gave me a cheeky giggle whilst I tried to concentrate on the many reports piling up on my desk. Next time I’ll try tying the laces all together to lasso a report or two into the bin!
