Drumstick, Double Lollies & Refeshers Squashies* from 45p for 45g packet
A few months ago, my mum came home with a bag of drumstick 'Squashies' and offered me one which I turned down. I don't really like anything too fizzy, chewy or sour and I just presumed they would be all three. Whilst food shopping with her about a week later, she bought more in ASDA and told me I had to try them. I knew ASDA sold a few unusual brands, so I thought I would give them a go and absolutely loved them!
From the reaction on my instagram when I first got them before Christmas, obviously I'm not the only one! So when I was contacted and asked if I would like to try the Refreshers and Double Lollies too, I jumped with glee and said yes please!
After trying all three (theres also Love Hearts in the range too), I can still say that Drumsticks are my absolute favourite, followed closely by Double Lollies. The Refreshers have lemon and strawberry flavours, but I didn't really like the 'original' lemon. Drumsticks tastes of raspberry and vanilla, and the Lollies have a slight coating, tasting a bit more fruity.
The nicest thing about Squashies is how they've brought back retro sweets from our childhoods and created something for everyone. My whole family love them; I even threw a bag in with my mums xmas pressies! We took them skiing too as they're great to suck on but not too chewy either. If you have children, they contain no artificial colouring, so perfect for journeys, films and get togethers!
In answer to lots of your questions, you can buy them from Asda, Sainsbury's and Co-op. I must admit, they are quite hard to come by but I always find mine on offer, 2 for £3 in ASDA.
What do you think? Will you be trying these and re-living memories?
