Not what I remember
I have not eaten Allens Ripe Raspberries for a very long time (years). I was surprised that the raspberry did not taste or resemble any taste or flavour of raspberries at all. I can't describe what they taste like, accept it was all very sweet, with a plastic end to the non raspberry flavour on the lollies. I did taste the Natural Sweet company as a comparison and the lollies were much much better, not only in flavour but also in the level of sweetness which was less sweet with more accurate flavour. I am not really sure why Allens would sell the Ripe Raspberries especially as they do not taste even similar to raspberries.
Nice. But room for improvement!
A tasty treat but not as good as they were years ago. Still the variety of flavours is good. My biggest whinge is that the amount of different varieties is way out wack from pack to pack. A real sparsity sometimes of green racing cars and cola bottles, my two favourites!

It was ok
I liked the lollies yet they failed to have any pineapple lollies inside the bag even though it was advertised on the back of the package and also was concerned about having only one strawberry lollie. The lollies in the bag were also a bit hard compared to other products. Otherwise, I was happy with the product.
Just not like they used to be.
Allens lollies many years ago used to be great - Soft, juicy, flavousome.
Nowadays, they're more akin to cheap home-brand fare, and very dissapointing.
Remember the jelly babies from many years ago?
Dusted jellies that were soft and delicious. NOTHING like what they are now.

Where is the quantity control?
When you buy a bag of lollies, it’s usually because it includes your favourites. And with this pack, it features some of the best lollies created: racing cars, cola bottles, teeth and raspberries! However, it’s inexcusable to open a bag and find a mere 4 racing cars included, and not more than 10 cola bottles! Instead, the pack was swamped with the vastly overrated honey bears and pineapples. Allens need to up their game when it comes to consistency and quantity control!
As far as party mixes go, Allens Retro Party Mix is a nice product with lots of different delicious lollies to choose from. The quality of the lollies is very good and with just the right amount of sweetness and chewiness. While there are some lollies in there that I don't really like all that much, it is a party mix so it is a product that is best enjoyed when shared with others.
A selection of many tasty Allen's lollies in one bag. Great for parties.
A bit pricey compared to other brands. Some of the lollies are not my cup of tea.
