There is something about the texture of these Roulettes that just puts a smile on my face. The texture is exactly the same as wine gums, and in my case fresh wine gums, really chewy, but not hard. To me this is one of the best gummy textures that there is. It takes a bit of work to get through them, but just when your jaw is going to start to ache you get through it. It's enormously satisfying to chew.

Roulettes are pretty much just wine gums; the difference is in flavour and in the size. The flavour is a little subtler than wine gums, and if memory serves me, they're a little fruitier as well. The other difference is in the size. These are much smaller than the standard wine gum that I'm used to. It's kind of nice; the little roll of circular treats is just the right size to munch without doing any damage to your jaw.

I guess the only fault I have with these treats is their similarity to wine gums. They're not really that creative. Sure the flavours are a little different, but I would have liked to maybe sample some completely off the wall flavours, or at the very least something a little different.
