Tooty Frooties were mainly sugar, glucose, fruit juices, Vegetable fat, Malic acid, Gum arabic, flavourings, Acidity regulator, Citric acid, wheat gluten and loads of colours. Its true, don’t be fooled this was sugar and e-numbers in heaps!
Chewy and fruity sweets that were with us through the sixties and seventiesIn fact it was in 1963 Tooty Frooties came to the tuck shops and newsagent counters. These came from John Mackintosh & Sons Ltd who become Rowntree Mackintosh Ltd. They would appear next to sticks of nougat and liquorice strips.
Personally if i needed a sweet fix i would choose Spangles. They contained a variety of translucent fruity flavours and lasted a lot longer.
So does anyone else remember these sweets?
