Food: Candy Kitten Eton Mess Swets

Candy Kitten are a gourmet sweets brand, which essentially means at full price it is £2.49 for a mere 150gr of sweets

The flavour isn’t a very accurate description of the taste; Elton Mess is strawberries, meringue and cream mixed together, these sweets taste vaguely of strawberry-related flavours and that’s about it

They also contain beef gelatine. I’m not vegetarian anymore however using gelatine in sweets always feels like an attempt to sneakily increase profit margins

Talking of sneaky, the beef gelatine is marked as being halal, however as the sweets also contain cochineal they can’t be halal – which makes me wonder who these overpriced, very chewy and under-flavoured sweets are aimed at… and then my darling spouse says he quite likes them at the very reduced price that I paid for them!
