Swizzels Drumchick Squashies (Asda) By @SpectreUK

I decided to go for a different type of blog than the usual chocolate egg variety. I do usually like fruit flavoured gums and foams, so these Swizzels Drumchick Squashies orange and pineapple flavoured foam gums sound right up my street. They have been brought out as a seasonal change to their usual Drumsticks. I usually do like orange and pineapple flavoured foodstuffs and drinks, so I'm quite looking forward to these. However, I noticed in the ingredients the only fruit used to make these Swizzels Drumchick Squashies was apple pulp, so there is no actual orange and pineapple to speak of. So what do they taste like…?

Well, there was the unmistakable smell of carnauba wax on opening the packet and a little apple. As far as I know the carnauba wax is used to stop the foams from sticking together. It slightly detracts from the flavour also. Once through the slightly waxy flavour, there is a taste of sweet apple followed by a little orange and pineapple which follows into the aftertaste. These Swizzels Drumchick Squashies orange and pineapple flavoured foam gums were pretty moreish once I'd got used to the slightly waxy coating…

Happy Easter, Everyone!
