Drumstick Squashies Are Now Available In Rhubarb And Custard Flavour

Anyone remember when Drumstick Squashies became a thing? They were like the lollies but without the over-chewy, stick in your teeth, painful jaw situ (RIP milk teeth). And the best bit? They had the exact same taste - making them heaven in our little mouths.

Gone were days when you had to succumb to the fact you were going to eat the wrapper remains that were still stuck to the sweet. And oh, were we smitten with them.

And now we've been blessed with a new addition to the Drumstick family - we call it the rhubard and custard. Got a nice ring that, hasn't it?

There's already a few flavours as well as the classic milk and raspberry, they include sour cherry and apple and bubblegum. Now there's this new combination on the block and we can't wait to try them.

According to The Sun, these new little guys have been described as 'addictive' by sweet fans.

Don't worry, we're not trying to tease you because they're out already so you can rate them for yourself. They are available in Tesco stores and online and at just £1.49($1.98) they're a bloody bargain.

In the last week we've seen Maltesers Truffles hit the shelves of Sainsbury's and Lindt bring out a hazelnut spread so it was about time some sweets started tapping into the market. Move over chocolate fans.

But the Squashies fans might need to move faster because apparently they're selling out quick.

And the lucky buggers that managed to nap a packet are already singing their praises, with one fan branding them as 'addictive'.

Others have made us all feel jealous after taking to Twitter to tell us about the goodies. One said: "Bruv. The rhubarb and custard squashies are the best sweet to ever touch road".

Another added: "DO NOT BUY the rhubarb and custard squashies! You will want 19 more bags."


Another sweet little treat we let the world into was the Starburst-infused gin. Yes, if there was anything that this story was lacking it was a bit of alcohol.

Kiltipper Cafe and Late Bar in Dublin are churning out some gin cocktails that are infused with the fruity sweets. Summer in a fish bowl anyone?
