Advantages Fruity, delicious + no artificial colours.
Disadvantages Poor availibility of the whole ' MAOAM stripes' range + they contain gelatine !!!
I have a bit of a fetish for sweets recently, chewy sweets to be exact (this is subject to change). Finding myself in the sweets aisle of Tesco, yet again, looking for something different, I stumbled on the MAOAM stripes.- - -
The MAOAM stripes are fruity flavoured chewy sweets, made by ‘Haribo’.When I initially discovered the pre-pack bag of MAOAM stripes, I wasn’t very impressed. Not only having an amusing and unpronounceable name, the packaging appeared a bit silly and naff. In fact if I hadn’t inspected closer and noticed that; ‘Haribo’ produced them; I very probably wouldn’t have bought them.
The ‘MAOAM stripes’ are available to buy in pre-pack bags, single stripes and larger versions (six in a pack) … Apparently!
I personally have only been able to find the pre-pack bag and I have scoured my local city and my local supermarkets: in a quest to find the others in the range … to no avail!
The sweets do not contain artificial colours. (hmmm very healthy???) They do contain fruit extracts, sugar and gelatine (for full list of ingredients, please read the packaging).The MAOAM stripes (pre-pack bag) are available in most supermarkets priced at £0.94. This price is very typical for similar sweets, actually a few pence cheaper. Bargain!
- - -The MAOAM range was introduced to the United Kingdom in 2001. Primarily there were only the ‘MAOAM stripes’, however; due to their success, the MAOAM range gradually increased. Now there are a few ranges and varieties available, including; MAOAM minis and MAO mix.
- - -To look at; the colour of MAOAM stripes; are pastels; practically white, with hints of colour representing the appropriate flavour. They appear to have ‘bits’ in them: which I assume (well, hope!) to be bits of the fruit.
The MAOAM stripes smell very fruity and appealing.
