Rowntree's 30% Less Sugar Fruit Pastilles

Rowntree's 30% Less Sugar Fruit Pastilles
In the midst of some of their latest new indulgent product launches, Nestle have decided to reduce sugar and calories across some of their range. Last week they announced the launch of a Kitkat with More Milk & Cocoa (which has caused "outrage" according to the Daily Mail), and as well as that they've reduced sugar by 30% in Fruit Pastilles and Rowntree's Randoms. I found this bag of reduced sugar Fruit Pastilles for 60p in Tesco Express.

They contain no artificial sweeteners, and it seems that some of the sugar may have been replaced with dextrin, which is a fiber made from corn. So they're still high carb but contain less sugar.
They tasted pretty good, definitely less sugary than regular Fruit Pastilles and were somehow lighter to eat. The fruit flavours are still there and the chewy texture is still the same. For a reduced sugar sweet it'd hard to tell the difference, and thankfully they don't have that weird flavor that some products with artificial sweeteners in do.
Overall, I really can't fault these. Yes they're not quite as sweet, but I think it's good to get used to foods being less sweet. Regular Fruit Pastilles were always far too sugary anyway.
