Default "Orange"head Candy???

Eating those at this very moment. Packaging says the product "contains real fruit juice".

Name of product is "Orangehead" and packaging is orange so I imagine there's orange or some citrus fruit juice in the list of ingredients.

No.....















Only juice in ingredients list is apple juice!

You're not really British are you? Otherwise, you'd only be eating Galaxy bars. What is WRONG with you?

Looking inside the box, I'd say you're right. They are bright orange.

So you'd have your kid not accept anything other than British candy when he goes trick or treating?

Yes.

They are an updated version of Lemonheads which are FAR FAR superior.

However, they are simply citric acid and sugar -- combined with food colouring and artificial flavour.

I prefer Grapeheads myself.....

Wait -- please tell me they don't have high fructose corn syrup in them these days.......

The rain here ended early and it got quite cool but the kids didn't mind, of course. There was a way OTT house in the neighbourhood so of course we had to go see that.

The youngest got 91 pieces of candy -- well, I use the term pieces here very loosely cos some were full-sized candy bars and packets. :scared: I asked Toontje if there was any holiday with that much excess candy, stickers, glow-in-the-dark tubes etc in the Netherlands and of course the answer is no.
