Review: Swizzels Sping Selection tub is a £5 resealable tub full of the Swizzels best sellers – I’m sure everyone in the UK with a sweet tooth will recognise it’s contents, and if you are anything like me then you will be reminded of some childhood memories involving sweetshops and pocket money!
The blue tub is bright and cheerful, containing fruity pops, parma violets, refresher bars, love hearts, fissures, drumsticks, and double lollies – all the best Swizzels sweets (although I must confess a weakness for the new Squashies).
The sweeties inside the tub contain no artificial colours, and are made in the UK. The tub is decorated with springtime illustrations; bunnies and flowers.
These tubs are a great alternative to chocolate for any easter hunts you may be thinking of doing over the holiday – and great for party treats too. You could even use the tub as an easter basket if you’ve hidden the sweets.
I did think that it could have been a more even mix of sweets in the tub – there were loads of drumstick lollies which the kids are too young to eat, but only a small handful of love hearts and double lollies. I ended up sending James into work with a load of drumstick lollies for his coworkers to enjoy, as he is the only person in this house who eats them!
The girls have definitely enjoyed being sent sweeties to review. They have tried everything but the drumstick lollies, and heartily approve of them all. The fizzers and love hearts are their particular favourites – and it’s so sweet when Georgie hands out love hearts to everyone!
We have all really been enjoying these sweets, and the tub has been useful after it’s been emptied too – it’s got a great seal on it making it perfect for storing biscuits or cakes in, and the handle means it’s easy for little ones to carry.
We give the Spring Selection tub 4 stars. It would have been perfect had it had a more even distribution of sweets!
