Product Description

Product Description

Maxons has been making quality confectionery since 1927, while Dixons which is now owned by Maxons has been doing so since the 1880s. Still based in Sheffield today and run by the 3rd generation of the Pitchfork family who took Maxons over in the 1950s. Maxons still produces to the same recipes and standards as they always have, and in keeping with this since 2009 Maxons now make 99% of their products with no artificial colours or flavours (this product being one of them). Maxons produces probably the finest Rhubarb & Custard on the market. If you want to know what a Rhubarb & Custard sweet should taste like Maxons are the sweet you need to try. Full of luscious rhubarb and vanilla flavouring Maxons Rhubarb & Custard is a smooth and refreshing boiled sweet. Maxons pride themselves on the quality and taste of their product and the Rhubarb & Custard sweet is probably the finest example of their skill at this. The Old Family Favourites group of products has been produced as a group of products that are archetypally British and are traditional products that have not changed since they were being first produced. They are all made to traditional recipes and using the finest ingredients and with taste and quality to the fore. The Old Family Favourites are packaged in a beautiful plastic reproduction of a Victorian Style sweet jar which can take you back in time to the start of the industry. This jar is ideal for a gift, to have on our desk at work or at home on the coffee table to share with people who love Old Fashioned sweets as much as you do, or those who need to know what a proper, quality boiled sweet should taste like.

Ingredients

Sugar, glucose syrup, citric acid, flavourings, colours turmeric, anthocyanins

I'm a sucker for good old-fashioned, hard-boiled sweeties, especially if they're rhubarb and custard flavour like these ones. As a diabetic, I have to be quite discerning about what I eat, avoiding sugar whenever I can, but I allow myself the occasional treat. Diabetics are supposed to keep sweets like jelly babies about their person, and in their car, just in case their blood sugar level dips. I always keep some of these delicious sweets in my car, and make sure to enjoy one or two if I'm on a long journey. Good value for money too.

I remember these sweets and as a kid growing up they were one of my favourites so I was looking forward to having a subscription of these, this product does NOT live up to the expectations that I had.

As other reviewers have suggested they taste a little flat and old.
A saving grace might of been a glass container, disappointingly though it is of a cheap plastic quality jar.
Subscription cancelled!

These tasted like old sweets. The outside was soft and crumbly as if they were past their use by date. The plastic container arrived cracked too.
