It's something I've feared for a while now, and as of today I have given up hope. It seems Bassetts Fruit Allsorts no longer exist. I just need a minute...

The daringly delicious alternative to Liquorice Allsorts seems to have vanished from the face of the Earth. I can only assume this is due to lack of popularity, as the general concencus online seems to be negative. I find this hard to believe, and I stand alone when I say I love loved Fruit Allsorts.

Growing up I was always intrigued by liquorice allsorts. But due to a dislike of black liquorice, they were always just out of reach. I've always loved sweets and there was something about Liquorice Allsorts that looked so tasty.

And then one day, it was like someone read my mind. "Liquorice Allsorts... without the liquorice!" It was perfect. And to this day I remember my first bag. Everything I'd dreamed of. In my darker days (when they were 50p a bag in Sainsburys) I was known to munch through several bags a week.

But it seems the die-hard Liquorice fans have driven away Fruit Allsorts. If I ever get round to it I'll send a firm letter to Cadbury (who bought out Bassetts) and ask them for a more official answer. But for now, I wave my fist at thee in defiance. Fruit allsorts, I salute you in all your fruity-non-liquoricey goodness!

That is all
