these are called 'vertically changed gems' now, ta.
Hardly a deal - this is the regular price.

However I do agree these are nice midget gems!

So not voted.

A hot deal is not always based on a product being cut in price. Surely value for money can recommend a hotdeal as well?
I agree with you. They are the best midget gems ever.The flavour and price unbeatable.
You're not the only one who agrees with me!

Didn't you mean 'Vertically Challenged Gems'?
The co-op used to do some great tasting midget gems a few years back. I've not thought about them for a long time now, might have to try these Sainsburys ones to see how they compare, thanks.
are these hard like the lion ones? oO If so they have the power to rip your teeth straight from the socket.Whatever they're made of its powerful ****.
expensive
Alan Partridge sprang to mind on this - - Are the taps included? Ok, it's not a deal breaker, but it would be nice.

Asda's taste better, and they are only 33p
How do they compare to Tesco Value Midget Gems which are 34p? Those are the best boiled beef based confectionery I've ever tasted.
ASDA, Sainsburys and Tesco midget gems are all made by the same company anyway
Voted hot even though it is the regular price

Word of warning though - they are really very tasty indeed, but are softer than "official" midget gems and can stick to your teeth if you have any crowns worth that inconvenience though!
Are the black one liquorice (sp) ???
pig skin, bovine hides and bones ... yum

although, I'd still eat them (but wouldn't want to smell / see them being made) oO
Precious stones for little people !!!! whatever next..... and you say these are available in all major supermarkets ??

No there not, Asda's are very BAD! I had to bin a few packs!

Tesco's are Great! the niceest I've teasted!

But I now want to try these Sainsbury ones!
I prefer the Tesco ones too. I put mine in freezer to make them a little harder otherwise I eat them too quick.
Can't beat Lion's MIdget Gems with the proper licorice blacks. Treble the price of these mind. I hate the texture of cheap midget gems

Or dip them in sherbet to increase consumption rate

Can't speak for the Tesco ones but the Asda ones definitely aren't the same as the sainsburys ones.

Have to agree the Sainsbury's ones are awesome, especially at the price they are.

Not for vegetarians then !! I wonder when the "mad cow disease" comments will begin .. maybe now ? oO
I agree the Lions one’s are the best but they are treble the price. Haven’t tried Asda’s or Tesco’s as neither is near me but I regularly buy the Sainsbury’s ones and good value they are too…

My only criticism is that they are a bit too soft for me so tend to be eaten quickly but the freezer tip sounds like a good idea so will give that a try..!!
who eats these when they are grown up. Its kids food

I'd suggest anyone who rates enjoying life over their image I personally don't care if I look childish or silly, if I'm happy!

I'm also going to agree about this being a hot deal, it may not be a temporary price cut, but it's always good to know about 'value' ranges that are actually worth buying, I think. So much of the 'basic' stuff is godawful. I imagine many of the sweets ranges are great because they don't have to pretend to be healthy or natural, so can concentrate on being nice!
I have to agree that Lion's (now under the 'Maynard' brand) are the best. You can usually get them for a £1 if your lucky.

Haven't Tesco changed their 'value' sweets. The packaging is different and the price is now 89p or 3 for 2 quid. Sainsburys gems are definitely better tasting than Asda.
Thanks
not a deal is it?
I love these midget gems. They are much nicer than the asda ones and softer too and also a bit better than the tesco ones. If i was given the choice it would always be sainsburys ones. If it was asda's or none i would have none. This is the regular price but it's still worth putting on here because it shows that value brands dont always mean your missing out on quality. But we wouldnt know this unless someone reccomends them.

Just to add the black ones in the sainsburys ones are not liquorice if anybody was wondering.
Midget gems..... Don't even get me started on wine gums. Hard or soft its a lottery.
Beef or pork?

You can still buy the lions ones from some shops, generally sold in 1/4's etc. The maynard ones are gain inferior to the original lions midget gems, sports mixtures and too a lesser extent fruit salad.
