I’ve had a love of Fruit Pastilles since I was a small boy, and that’s quite a while ago! So I was rather excited when Cinabar bought me these Rowntree’s Fruit Pastilles Infusions, which come in three coloured flavours. The orange colour is Orange and Grapefruit and has a quick taste of orange that gets beaten down by the grapefruit, however the grapefruit’s sourness is dulled somewhat due to a violent exchange with the orange. The pink colour is Raspberry and Pomegranate, which initially tastes of raspberry, but after a quick chew the pomegranate swirled around my mouth like some hippy pink juicy rain dance with the raspberry, making for a very tasty sweet. The green colour is Apple and Elderflower, which was slightly different in flavour sensation than the other two Infusions. Yes, this sweet did start with apple flavour, but this was almost completely replaced by elderflower after a couple of chews. The apple flavour did resurface almost at the end of the sweet, but the elderflower beat this down once more. I would call these Fruit Pastilles ‘Fruit Fights’, as ‘Infusion’ seems a little tame for the tasty fruity battle that was fought in my mouth with every juicy sweet. There’s nothing tame about these Fruit Pastilles, as it’s; “which flavour is stronger? FIGHT!!”
