I have a sweet tooth, but apart from the fact that I don't like the taste of artificial sweeteners, I am wary of them because I've read reports they might actually be worse for you that sugar and encourage weight gain. Peppersmith do a range of natural sweeter (xylitol) products and I'm rather liking their orange and mandarin rings. They are a great low calorie treat when I've got a craving, and while they are a bit pricy, I wouldn't want to eat them every day, so work as an occasional treat. Definitely worth trying to see if they are to your taste if you are looking for what appears to be a healthy sweet treat.

These are really quite peculiar - they taste quite nice while you're eating them (although a bit flavourless - I'd have liked a much stronger citrus flavour) but once you've finished them they leave you feeling a bit queasy. There's a definite afteraste which is a bit chemical. Is it that I'm so used to the taste of sugar? Whatever the reason, I'm afraid I won't be buying these again.

Bought these for my god-daughters birthday party. Went down a treat. Good to know that they are sugar free, don't have any nasty additives and are actually good for teeth. Also bought the strawberry and vanilla flavour.

I have taken into account with this review that I was expecting orange and mandarin-flavoured mints. Probably because I have sampled Peppersmith's mints before. And they were of a certain (if hardly mind-expanding) quality.

Anyhow, I have to say that I am incredibly disappointed with these utterly pointless sweets. My tastebuds stretch and strain to extract any kind of flavour from them at all! I mean, there is such a thing as subtle flavouring, sure... and then there is such a thing as homeopathic-strength flavouring, as in the case of these tingz.

I really cannot fathom who or what these are for. Surely there is a significant danger of choking when it comes to small children? And, as another reviewer has mentioned, there is something a little alarming in having these resemble some prescription drugs!

As for anyone who would like to satisfy their sweet tooth without rotting said tooth, I can't believe that the nano-flavour in these sweets is capable of satisfying anything unless, perhaps, one were to scoff an entire packful in one, fell swoop. Which, apparently, could pose some digestive difficulties for some!

For adults and older children without diabetic/allergy issues who need a sweet fix, I'd suggest that a teaspoon of Manuka Honey will, genuinely, do you more good and hit your sweet spot better than tingz.

Despite the number of negative reviews I was quite keen to try these sweets. I really like most of the sugar free sweets on the market despite having a sweet tooth. While the flavour wasn't really strong the sweets tasted very nice and I found them very enjoyable. The size of the sweets (about the size of a peanut) does make them unsuitable for young children as a young child could choke on them. Appart from that I would recommend them and will certainly purchase more of Tingz sweets in the future.

I love the brightly coloured packaging. And I like the informative website.
I like the actual endoorsements of British Dental Health Foundation and The Vegetarian society.
My only reservation here is the naming of the cartoon devices as Bowie and Floyd. Bizarre.

The sweets themselves remind me of orange vitamin pills I remember called Haliborange. They have a very nice mandarin flavour but take the roof off your mouth if you have more than two.

They are the shape of pills which I don't think is very responsible considering how we should be educating kids about the difference between sweets and medicine. They could be triangular, star shaped etc.

Being nearly all Xylotol, they have the familiar texture and feel a bit cool on the tongue. They are gone in a second if you crunch them which makes me wonder if they wouldn't be better if they were made harder for sucking or chewy for chewing.

Nice taste but all in all only 3.5 stars rounded down, I'm afraid; it just strikes me that adults would much prefer RICOLA ELDERFLOWER LOZENGES 45G or suchlike and kids would simply crunch these tingz up in a second, unappeased.

I have a chronic sweet tooth. No two ways about it, I am a sweetie addict. I've tried healthier alternatives before but grape and/or nuts just didn't cut it for me.)
These, however, are great. I like the taste (quite sweet and flavoursome). The texture - a sort of hard sweet that crumbles when crushed. A bit like a Parma Violet. But smaller. Much smaller. I also like that you get a fair few in each bag, thus ensuring they last a little while.

My only reservation is they're quite small. Sub Tic-Tac size, so there is a temptation to ram a handful into one's mouth at a time. I would say they are, as a result, unlikely to quash my sweetie habit just yet. I think they will mainly appeal to the Smint/Tic-Tac audience more, looking for a quick freshener.

Probably not great for kids as a bit small and decidedly lacking in the chewiness kids seem to enjoy so much. Plus, for very small kids there is the chance of a choking incident occurring.

Personally, I really enjoyed them and their sugar-free tooth friendliness. Possibly a tad expensive and maybe aimed at the wrong market though so minus one star for that.

I'm going to cut to the chase: I think these little tablet-style, sugar-free sweets are rather horrible. I tried a few, just to see if I could get used to the taste, but I really couldn't warm to them at all and persisting with them was starting to make me feel queasy, so I stopped after four. There are minor positives: if they contained sugar, instead of sweetener, I'm sure the natural citrus taste of orange and mandarin would be rather good, however, all I can taste is that horrible, soapy sweetener which, although I tolerate it in mint-flavoured gum, I really can't get past in these little sweets. Also, the packaging is bright, fun and attractive to children so, if your kids don't mind the taste, they are a lot better for them than crunching full sugar sweets. However, as with all Xylitol-based products, "excessive consumption may cause laxative effects", so you would have to be careful about how many you (or your kids) consumed. Naturally, that's not a problem for me as these nasty little things are going straight in the bin.

I need a nice cup of tea after that.

As a diabetic I'm glad of any sugar free sweets I can get hold of. These are not bad. They are quite fruity with a minimum of after taste from the sweetners. The only problem is they are so damn small that you can't really suck them. I crunched my way through a whole packet in about 5 minutes. This is not so good as the sweetners can have a laxative effect.

I was quite looking forward to getting these sweets. I only tend to eat sugar free sweet things so when I saw these I couldn't wait to get them.

Now with a name like 'tingz' I was expecting an explosion of flavour in my mouth. All I got was the faintest hint of an orange. I was very disappointed, but then I noticed the ingredients on the pack. Sweetener is the main ingredient, followed by gum Arabic, then an anti caking agent (yes, I know what you're thinking, well where's the flavour???), then comes carnuba wax which is the glazing agent, and then finally orange oil, mandarin oil and orange 'flavours' then colouring. Well, no wonder I couldn't taste a thing. The sweets have got more glazing agent on them than flavour in them!

As an experiment I have just shovelled 19 of the sweets into my mouth, and guess what, I can't taste a thing. I do get a hint of something waxy though.

I would definitely say, avoid these like they were a plague.
