    Opal Fruits are making a comeback!

    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!

    didnt they just get renamed to starburst?

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

    Yeah but they never tasted the same being called Starburst (even though they were the exact same sweet) :roll: !

    made to make your mouth water!!

    Opal Fruits .. Opal Fruits....... Made to make ur mouth water :whistling:

    i did like them better as opal fruits but i think its a bit pointless bringing them back as they are the same

    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

    Maybe Asda have found a job lot of 15 year old opal fruits at the back of their warehouse!

    That's what i'm thinking......

    a name change almost as bad as when coco pops called themselve choco crispies, or did they spell it krispies? it was something awful like that...

    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
