LONDON - Mars has revealed that Opal Fruits are going back on sale in the UK, 10 years after they were renamed Starburst.
The Opal Fruits brand name was scrapped in 1998 and replaced with Starburst by manufacturer Mars, much to the annoyance of some fans. Starburst first appeared in the US in 1976.
The chewy fruit sweets with the tagline "Made to make your mouth water" will now return with their old name for a limited period.

The packaging will be the same and the original four flavours of orange, lemon, lime and strawberry will be brought back.

The only difference will be that this time the recipe contains no artificial flavours or colours.
Opal Fruits will be on sale exclusively through supermarket chain Asda from May 11 for a limited period of 12 weeks. Starburst will continue to be sold as normal.
If the return of Opal Fruits is as popular as Mars expects it may make their comeback more permanent.
A spokesperson for Mars was reported in the Daily Mail to have said: "The brand is a classic. Everyone of a particular generation remembers the Opal Fruits catchphrase.
"After a 10-year absence from the UK market, we have decided to bring back Opal Fruits as a limited-edition offer. For those who remember the sweets in their original guise it will be an opportunity to evoke that sense of nostalgia."
Last year, Mars expanded its Starburst range with the launch of Starburst Drink, which comes in two flavours: Outrageous Orange & Pineapple and Sensational Strawberry & Raspberry. It also launched Starburst Choozers, a liquid-centred chew.
This week, Mars agreed to buy the owner of Wrigley chewing gum for £11.5bn. Mars plans to move its Starburst and Skittles sweets into Wrigley.

I had the kids looking at me like I was a lunatic the other day. We were on our way home from the cinema/dinner and they wanted to pop into tesco to buy some sweets...

Having just bought 4 x pack of four sweets I proceeded to tell them 'no, you can have a pack of the opal fruits when we get in if you're that desperate - it won't be long'

Them: *blank stare* eventually my son says 'what are opal fruits?'

Me: *exasperated* 'You know, they're on the side in the kitchen, there's 16 packs of the things you can't try and tell me you don't know what I'm talking about - OPAL FRUITS!'

Them: *more funny looks* There's nothing called opal fruits *looking at each other bewildered* we don;t know what you mean.

Me: Oh for GOD'S SAKE. Well, you're not having anything now. So be quiet.

*pause*

My son: Do you mean the Starburst?

I started laughing/cringing at the same time, trying to explain that's what they used to be called and yeah, a prize tool I felt. My poor kids! (well, not so poor... they got a pack of STARBURST each when they got in :P)

Oh! And Pacers were foul. Hated those things. Hted Spangles too after cutting my tongue on one... since when is coloured/slightly flavoured glass a suitable confection? :D:D
