Review of Sainsbury’s Fizzy Fangs Sweets

Now I have to confess to not really having that much of a sweet tooth. Chocolate is my go to sweet treat. Every now and again I get the occasional craving for sweets. With food allergies you can’t just grab a packet and hope for the best you have to study the label. So when I dashed into a Sainsbury’s local a packet of fizzy fangs grabbed my attention. I saw the vegan label and hoped for the best. If I couldn’t have them I knew someone who would.

Ok liked the packaging of these sweets. The bright yellow packaging with a star and a crafty face smiling at you. Aimed at children maybe, but hey I’m a kid at heart. Onto the ingredients list wheat is clearly highlighted as an allergen and there is a no may contain warning. As mentioned earlier they are clearly labelled as being suitable for a vegan diet and were also suitable for dairy free me.

On opening the packet I was greeted by fang shaped sweets. They looked like great fun. They were eveningly coated in a sugary coating some of which was at the bottom of the packet. They smelt just like Haribo Tangtastics, slightly sweet yet sour at the same time. On biting into the sweet I got immediate sour hit, this followed by a slight sweetness and a hint of strawberry. As for the texture this was soft and slightly gooey but nice and different to your everyday Haribos. I quiet enjoyed it. I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by these fangs.

So would I recommend these sweets if you follow a dairy free and or a vegan diet? Yes definitely. I loved the fun packaging and the taste and texture of this naughty treat. So thank you Sainsbury’s for producing a packet of sweet that I can enjoy.

    That’s interesting that they now make vegan candy. These sort of remind me of sour patch kids candy, with a different shape.

    Interesting and not the usual as far as reviews go…
    But I must say I’m really trying to eat less sugar as it is really bad for us.
