I have tried a variety of RJ's goods in the past including the Jumbo Licorice Allsorts, so it was interesting to be presented with a new and completely different product. The first thing that struck me was the rainbow of colours that spilled out as soon as the bag was opened. Because the individual sweets are quite small, there was more scope for colour mix-and-matching which meant the display was really attractive.

My partner's niece and husband were hosting us for a couple of days, so this was a perfect opportunity to try out the Smallsorts. All four of us enjoy confectionery; our niece actually said that licorice allsorts were among her favourites, so she was certain she would enjoy them no matter what. Personally, I have not yet encountered an RJ's product that I did not like, so I was prepared to enjoy them too.

Being adults, we tended to eat an entire Smallsort in one go. However, this resulted in each one tasting exactly the same because the flavours mingled with one another. To test this out, we separated a couple into three pieces and this time we could distinguish the different fruit flavours - lemon, lime, orange, raspberry and banana. The licorice insert was unusual as it appeared to have an inner section which was softer than the outer - presumably the "lip-smacking centre". Again, we could distinguish this only when the sweet was deconstructed.

Our niece detected a slightly grainy texture to the lolly part but on checking the packet we found that in fact it was coconut. She thought that the sweets on the whole were quite pleasant, and would be great for children, although personally she would prefer a larger allsort. Her husband is not normally a fan of licorice allsorts, but he did like these; he said they were just the right degree of sweetness, although he also said he needed to eat two at once.

My partner liked them and said they might be good chopped on top of partially melted ice-cream or sliced into a scroggin mix. I was not sure about that; I would prefer them on their own but maybe with a thicker licorice layer - personally I thought they were a bit too sweet. However, because they are so small, they can be eaten just one or two at a time; this way it would not cause a sugar overload. And I think they would be delightful served to decorate a fruit platter.
