People Are Having A Furious Debate Over This Packet Of Fruit Pastilles

When you're feeling peckish and you fancy a snack, there's nothing better than grabbing a packet of Fruit Pastilles.

The sugary fruit sweet (which has been knocking about since the 1800s, if you can believe it) is a firm favourite with many, thanks to its varied flavours of blackcurrant, lemon, strawberry, lime and orange all in one tube.

But sometimes, (and not that often), you can find yourself with a packet of Fruit Pastilles without a lot of variety - and it can either be the best thing ever or thoroughly disappointing.

Twitter account @NoContextBrits shared a photo of a tube of Fruit Pastilles that had been unwrapped only containing mostly lime and lemon flavours - and one pitiful orange sweet.

The picture was captioned simply as "fuming", with people pouring into the comment to express how disappointed they would be if they ended up with these flavours.

"I'd march right back to the sweet shop if that were me," one person said.

A second chipped in: "If this was my tube of Fruit Pastilles I would be calling my lawyers."

A third boldly stated: "That's a crime against humanity, The Hague needs involved in this atrocity."

While a fourth added: "No blackcurrant? That's a disgrace."

(We all know the blackcurrant ones are the best, right?)

However, not everyone would be up in arms if they had a mostly lemon and lime packet of Fruit Pastilles.

Another Twitter account, with the handle @willmill82 shared the original post, writing: "Not gonna lie, this is the ideal packet of Fruit Pastilles."

"That is absolutely perfect," replied one fruit fan, who went on to admit she 'throws the blackcurrant and strawberry flavoured pastilles away' (the heathen!).

"Literally goals," said a second. "Yellow Green and Orange are the only ones I care about. Same with skittles."

"Same! Greens for the win!" a third agreed. "Followed by yellows and oranges. Purples go straight in the bin or to a willing sacrifice."

A fourth added: "The lime ones are my absolutely favourites."

For those of you who really cannot stand the more citrus flavoured Fruit Pastilles, you'll be happy to know you can get a sharing bag containing just the strawberry and blackcurrant flavours for just £1 in all good supermarkets.
