Not what they used to be
Like all the last reviews, this product is NOT the same as it used to be. Like your other products (milko's , sherbies) the caramel is not hard and chewy like it used to be (as were the milko's and sherbies). Have you guys been sued for causing broken teeth or pulled fillings??? I've bought several packets over the last 12 months (fresh stock, and both winter and summer stock) to no avail. No longer on our shopping list.
What have you done!
Bought fantales for the first time today and was so disappointed to find out another manufacturer has meddled with a classic! I was expecting a chewy caramel and delicious chocolate coating, I got a cheap tasting chocolate with a horrible fudge centre. WHY! Why mess with the classics!
I live overseas and buy fan takes whenever I'm home to take back with me... I've just opened a packet I purchased in June 2016 and found they are no longer a chewy caramel but more like a fudge... just awful!! What's happening in Australia... BBQ Shapes recipe changed and Allens fan tales too. So disappointed!!!
Although your lollies are deliciously morish we wish to bring to your attention the lack of variation of questions on the wrappers. We have been doing the fantale trivia challenge for some years now at our annual yearling convention we woul like you to step it up and update and improve your trivia questions because we have had 50 packets over 4 days and it's is no longer a challenge
Kind regards everyone that works at barree stud whom are now 5 kg heavier !
Repetiveness of questions
The fantale wrappers need more, new exciting trivia. Its 2013, and would be great if there was more of a variety and not the same trivia all the time. Everytime I get a packed of fantales, it always chops off half of the trivia and just leaves the answer to a different question... Please fix.
It tastes so amazing. I love the caramel and the chocolate which is actually proper chocolate :)
I moved to australia for this!!!
They stopped selling them in New Zealand so I had to move to Australia. If you like werthers, caramel, butterscotch and chocolate you'll love having a gob full of this choc covered caramel!
the choc is not that cheapy plastic tasting stuff you can find on some lollies it is a thick worthy chocolate covering complimenting the buttery caramel inside! Win! So melty in your mouth in warm weather!!
When it's cold it'll be chewier before the melty goodness but who doesn't want to tounge caramel from their back teeth? I still love it cold from the fridge it's a good sucker.
These are nice lollies to try. I think if someone has sensitive dental issues these would not suit because they are a bit chewy and a bit hard too. Overall, these are nice choccies to have when you want something sweet to eat and not have a bit sized treat.
These are fun choccies that are tasty to eat. They are chewy caramels covered in a thin layer of milk chocolate. They also have some trivia on the wrappers which makes them a bit unique.
These are a bit sweet so I am only eat about 1 or 2, which may be a good thing!
I know Fantales are an alltime favourite for some, but I have never found them all that pleasant. Being a sweet tooth, but not a toffee fan, I find the toffee ruins the chocolate experience. They are overly chewy and sticky which is bad news for your teeth (and you when you have to discreetly pick the toffee out of your teeth!) The chocolate is nice but I think I will stick to maltesers and movie time.
Movie trivia, ok for something sweet
Very chewy and sticky, not pleasant to eat. Trivia on wrappers is often missing half the story
