Just like Cadbury resurrected the Wispa, now Mars are bringing back Opal Fruits for a 12 week limited period from May 11th. Apparently they'll only be sold through Asda.

I used to love the red and orange ones!

Check out the full story here:

So they're just giving 'Starburst' their original name back then...
Got some over vibrant eighties ad in my mind now...

I will be stockpiling these! Used to love them and think I have only ever had 1 packet of starburst - they just arent the same!

Glad to see they are bringing the proper flavours back too, not just changing the packaging!

Just? Where you been?! Renamed in 1998. People are right they didn't taste the same again.

i remember them tasting better as opal fruits, they taste more artificial as starburst
#10
Maybe Asda have found a job lot of 15 year old opal fruits at the back of their warehouse!

Was it Fruitella?

Remember the ad theme song was based on Right Said Fred's 'I'm too sexy'. It went something like this:

"Fruitella, too juicy for my mum, too juicy for my dad, too juicy for my nan...maaaaaaannnnn!" :-D
