Goody Good Stuff Naturally Delicious Sweets review

When asked if we would like to try out some of the sweets from the Goody Good Stuff range, we obviously jumped at the chance. While they don't claim to be good for you - that would be just too goody good to be true unfortunately ! - they do promise to have taken out all of the hidden nasties that you get in some confectionery.

They explain on their website : "Goody Good Stuff is made by a small team of people who care deeply about their customers and bringing them the nicest and most nasty-free sweets available anywhere. [...] The sweets combine the highest blend of ingredients including natural fruit juices and extracts which create a beautifully clear consistency and superior taste experience, and what's more we have removed all of the nasty E numbers and other allergens which are present in most conventional sweets, making these sweets a great, natural choice for you and your family." The packaging proudly staes that they are gelatine free, gluten free, fat free, dairy free and contain no artificial colours. 

We received three family bags to try out, the first of which was Koala Gummy Bears. We all commented on how deliciously soft and easy to chew they were, unlike some gummy sweets that can be hard, overly chewy or stick your teeth together. The flavours were intense and natural. These actually really reminded me of some ultra-expensive and top-of-the-range sweets from Jealous "Irresistible Guilt-Free Sweets" that we reviewed here. You get the same fabulous flavour and texture, the same "free from nasties" concept but you don't get the wince-inducing price tag !

Next up was a bag of Summer Peaches. We get a very similar sweet in our local sweet shop that does loose sweets in pick and mix, and I always add a couple to the kids' sweetie bags because they're my faves. These Goody Good Stuff Summer Peaches are again lovely and soft, with a beautiful, intense, natural-tasting flavour. The 100g bag, containing 330 calories, disappeared in double quick time when I split it three ways with the girls and it made a wonderful guilt-free 100 calorie treat, especially as they are fat free.

The final bag was the Sour Mix & Match, which was again delicious, with the perfect zingy flavour complementing a soft, juicy texture. A unanimous seal of approval yet again.

The whole range actually encompasses eight products. In addition to the three bags that we tried, you can get Strawberry Cream, Cheery Cherries or Tropical Fruit Gummies, and on the Sours side, Cola Breeze and Sour Fruit Salad. The kids loved them on taste alone and, while I agree that the flavour and texture is enough to sell them, I also love the fact that they're free from a lot of hidden nasties. I will definitely be buying the Summer Peaches ones again if I can find them (Waitrose and Holland & Barrett look like the best bet for finding them at the moment), and I will be very tempted to try out the rest of the range too. Hopefully they'll be stocked in all the big supermarkets very soon.
