Nestlé Rowntree's Randoms Sweet 'N' Sour Review
Another year, another product launch from Rowntree's Randoms. Last year they did Squidgy Speak and Rip 'Ems, and even a special Phantom Mix for Halloween... now they're doing this Sweet N Sour version of their sweets that are oh-so-popular with the youth.
These basically do what they say on the tin: they're randomly shaped jelly and foam sweets in either sour or sweet flavours, so it's like they took regular Rowntree's Randoms and mixed some sour sweets among them.
The result is rather nice. The sour Random's are very fruity with a pleasant sour tang, not too overpowering or artificial. There's a nice variety of shapes, with the classic ice cream cone as well as love hearts, a foam snowman, smiley faces, and even a wonka-style tophat.
Overall, nothing majorly new from Rowntree's Randoms here, but these are still some tasty sweets which will no doubt be very popular with kids thanks to the branding.
