Fruit Confection, Beauty Sweeties - Review

Fruit Confection, Beauty Sweeties
Admit it. We all love sugary treats. If you're a regular reader here you'll know that I like products that offer a little something extra. I already love sweets so when they contain beauty boosting ingredients such as biotin then what's not to get excited about?

Fruit Confection, Beauty Sweeties, stars

I saw these Beauty Sweeties during a recent Holland & Barrett rummage. I was drawn to the 'Veggies love it' part. I emailed the company and not only are they vegetarian, they are in fact vegan so everyone can enjoy them.

Beauty Sweeties currently come in three flavours. I grabbed the pink grapefruit but there was also cranberry. I believe honeydew melon is available but I did not see that one else that would have been my choice. I only bought the one as it was £1.99. Rather steep for a small packet but reasonable considering the special ingredients and the high fruit content. A much wiser investment than a regular packet of sweets I think. (Any excuse to eat sweets will do me.)

Despite the small packaging, there were a surprising amount of fruity stars inside and they did taste really good. The texture is soft rather than chewy which to me is a bit disappointing. I would definitely purchase these again though, especially if I saw the melon flavour.

There are more in the range of Beauty Sweeties: Fruit jelly hearts, yoghurt cream pralines and crispy chocolate bars but some contain gelatin and they all contain collegen which is unfortunately not suitable for vegetarians.

Have you tried any of the Fuirt Confection range? What treats with a healthy boost do you enjoy?

    1. Neither had I until I saw them in H&B. You should pick some up if you see them.

  2. Thanks for sharing this. I think they would make a good replacement for energy gels on my longer runs. I hope my H&B stocks them as it is titchy x

    1. Oh what a good idea! I might have to try this too. They are very soft so would work great I reckon. Less sickly than the jelly beans I take on half marathons haha

    2. Also if your small H&B don't stock them, ask and they will usually be more than happy to order some in :)
