“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Cola „
I rarely visit Morrison's supermarket myself so most of my experience with their own brand products comes from trying them at my daughters house and having recently tried and enjoyed a strawberry gateau from Morrison's I was keen to try other things. My grandkids visit me regularly so I always have a huge tin of various sweets for them to dive into and something they love that I enjoy too is fizzy cola bottles, being an Asda shopper mine are always the Asda version but on trying the Morrison's version I have to agree with my daughter and my grandkids, these are better. Morrison's have not only somehow made theirs even fizzier than others but you can actually really taste the cola taste instead of just getting a mouthful of fruity fizz, the cola taste is nice and it stays even after the fizz dies down. These are of course very sweet and not at all good for your teeth due to all the sugar used but if you limit the amount you have and remember to brush then these are a sweet treat I would recommend to adults and kids alike. Price wise these are very similar to the Asda ones, Asda ones cost 36p per bag and these 39p per bag but both stores have them on three for one pound offers along with many other kids sweets.
I thought I'd add these to DooYoo because they're my favourite version of fizzy cola bottles, even though I know my dentist wouldn't be happy if she knew I still eat kids sweets! These are a Morrisons own make of the popular cola fizzy bottle sweets, and can be found hanging in their bags amidst the other sweets & choccies. They are quite simply jellies that are shaped like cola bottles, and covered in sugar. Okay, so these may not be the healthiest things in the world, and although there's no health benefits per se to balance out their sugar content, at least the packet claims they contain no artificial colours of flavours. They're sold in an 80g pinky/purple plastic hanging bag and cost 39p, though they're often on offer where you can buy 3 bags of kids sweets for £1. Price-wise I think these are good because they're good quality (if you can say that about sugar-laden jellies!), taste good and you get plenty in the packet. The recommended serving is 25g, which is probably only about 4/5 bottles, though I would say kids and adults alike could probably munch their way through most, if not the whole bag, fairly easy. Each 25g contains zero fat, but 85 calories because of the sugar as there are 14% sugars per serving. Again, quite high in sugar, and we all know the issues with sugar, but as an irregular treat I think these are okay. Everything in moderation I guess is what I'm saying here, rather than advocating a diet high in sugar! Fizzy Cola Bottles can vary quite a lot between brands, and I guess it depends on what you're after, but I would opt for these every time. They are relatively long and quite floppy, rather than too hard or firm (no innuendo intended there!). This makes them much chewier, with an inside consistency which is also relatively soft. The colour is graduated, so they're light at the top and darker at the bottom, reflecting the cola flavour. I think the flavour is just right; you know they're cola bottles, and they're very sweet because of the sugar, but they're not too tangy or sharp. Overall, it's the general texture & appearance of these that are different from most cola bottles. They're quite large, but softer and chewier, with a sweet cola flavour and plenty of sugar, making them strangely tasty and addictive.
