“SUCK ON THIS”

published 01/11/2001

ProCan last for ages. Lots of lovely sweetie sucking

ConsCan get urge to crunch.

Werther's original buttery sweets are one of my favorite sweeties, next to chocolate that is. I expect you are thinking "Oh yes, I have seen those on the television", YES you are right you have." Those are the little sweeties the old grey haired man is offering to his Grandchild",YES right again...

I remember first seeing these on the telly. It showed some Granddad giving his Grandson some Werthers originals and the Granddad saying about ‘he loved them through his child hood’ of something along them lines. Funny how he had tasted them about 50 – 60 years before they were released, isn’t it...

ProVery Tasty, Last For Ages, Good Value For Money

ConsVery High In Sugar, Stick To Your Teeth

There is something about eating sweets when you are a grown adult that is a little bit taboo. These days it seems that all of the marketing is aimed at little kids up to their teens, so what happens if you grow up like me, but you don't grow out of that craving for sweets. The answer is you turn...

“Grandad's favourites”

published 04/03/2003

Pronice buttery taste, last for ages if you suck them

Consmy grandad never bought me any!

Yes, we've all seen the advert. Grandad sitting there with his grandson and offering him Werthers Originals. Now if kids knew that that wasn't the kid's REAL grandad on TV, what use would it be in telling them not to take sweets from strangers...? Anyway, I digress. Onto the sweets themselves...

“Malu's Munchies”

published 23/01/2007

Pro taste good, not sticky, don't get bad with age

Cons no health food :-)

Ask my pupils what they associate with their teacher, I bet they'll all mention Werther's Original. For more years than I can remember I've got these sweets in my school-bag and distribute them as a reward for outstanding achievements. "I've done my homework, do I get a sweet?" will lead to...

OK, so I'm bored, and I've managed to wangle myself 30 minutes away from the wonderful world of heterogeneous catalysis (never EVER do ANYTHING in inorganic chemistry for your PhD, kids - you'll regret it), and decided to write about something. Anything. Preferably in a paying category. A-ha...

“Werthers a Will...”

published 17/06/2002

ProGreat unique taste

ConsNone

Having written close to a hundred reviews, several of which are on foodstuffs, it is becoming quite hard to use a different slant on things and try not to repeat what I have written in a previous review. I always try to do something new in an op. So, what can I write about Wethers? I remember...

ProBrown sweetie with fabricated history

ConsQuite pricy, not as cool as Curly Wurly

You must have seen the advert, the grandfather passes down the candy wisdom of his generation, encourages his grandoffspring to spurn the ways of colourful condiments, say no to refreshers, mojos and hubba bubba, resist the lure of Bertie Basset and his legions of liquorice leviathans and instead...

Do you suck or bite and chew. I do all three. I am of course talking about Werthers Original sweets. I know all of us sweet toothed people love chocolate covered sweeties as well as hard sweeties. But when you are on a long car journey going to an important meeting, wearing your best white blouse...

“for you and your grandad”

Progreat tasting sweets

ConsNo disadvantages

These are great for christmas presents if your ever stuck on what to buy your Grandad. I bought him a tin of them when I was 13, they were 1 KG I think and he loved them (although I ate most of them). These are long lasting, creamy, toffee flavoured sweets. It is created with fine butter and...

You know, if you don’t have a free bus pass, don’t have a big wobbly mole on your face, and don’t spend fifty percent of your waking hours talking about the Blitz, you shouldn’t even be reading this review. Go on, bugger off, and listen to some of that modern ‘pop’ music or something. For those...

“'Werthy' of an award!”

published 29/06/2003

ProThey taste lush!!

ConsI have no teeth left.

Gawd I wish I had a Grandad like the one in the Werthers ad's, all cuddles and sweeties. The only thing I'm likely to get off my Grandad is a slap across the head and a comment about me putting on weight! Still, I 'm sure that some people have lovely Grampys who ruffle their hair and give them...

ConsYou have to share

I can't remember the first time I had Werthers originals but it must have been good because I fell in love with them straight away. The taste is definately the most important thing in this review so I'll do this first. They have a very distinc taste of toffee and caramel, the sort which lingers...
