Wine Gums = Heaven

I love wine gums, love em. I always promised myself If I ever won the lottery one of the first things that I'd get is a LifeTime supply of winegums, thats how much I love em. Anyone else share this same love as I do?

always lookin for a bargain on wine gums, so If anyone know where I can find a big a5s bag for a low price, let me know. Brand is no issue, as they generally have the same flavours. so far Giant Tiger has 300g bag for $1.99, Walmart has 400g for $3.00.

If not, what food/snack/drink would you get a lifetime supply of if you won the lottery?

I used to like them a lot, but now I buy the roll maybe once a year and thats enough. They dont seem to taste as good as they used to, or maybe my tastes have changed?

My favourite now are the real fruit gummies, buy them for movies and road trips!
That's my 2cents worth

and I thought I was the only one addicted to Wine Gums..LOL

I have a pack in my desk at work, a pack in my bag and some at home.

I find it really hard to find very chewy gummies nowadays.. I find them all to be too soft.

I also really like the alphabet gummies from bulk barn.

If you are referring to the Maynard's brand ones, they used to be imported from the UK but last time I bought a pack (years ago) I noticed they weren't as strong/good as they were before. I noticed they were now made here and haven't bought them since.

Bulk Barn sells UK winegums. They are twice as much as local.

yeah, I hardly get the Maynard ones as well, the bags are usually over priced and the rolls are hit or miss, usually hard as a rock (made by cadburry scheppes)

The ones at Giant Tiger 300g($1.97) are Waterbridge (England) and the ones at Walmart 400g($3.00) are in-house "Great Value"

Yeah, I have some rolls in my drawer and they're pretty tough to chew. I noticed now they put this sticky seal on the rolls that they didn't have before.

I've seen in some stores specifically Zellers that carry the really big ginormous bag of the wine gums. I think they're like 2.5 lbs!

yeah, ... I once picked up a 2LB bag of wine gums from Liquidation World for like $3.50.... best deal EVER!!! (I still went through it in like 2 days :P)

shouldve gotten more bags, learned the hard way that at liquidation world...once they're gone, they're gone :'(

I find not a lot of stores make their own store brand wine gums (which tend to be cheaper) ... they tend to make store brand JuJubes...which taste like balls.

Yes referring to Maynard's, did not even know there were other brands???? Now I will have to look around.

I liked these when I was younger... except the black ones. The packaging used to be clear (for the rolls), so I would riffle through the box until I found one without any black ones. :cheesygri

Costco seems to have a reasonable price on them- I think they might sell them in multi roll boxes as well as in bags, but I forget.

costco has maynards for like $8 for a 1 kg bag. i used to buy the walmart stuff, but the maynard's is better imho.

i bought a whole whack several weeks ago when it was on sale for $5 per 1 kg bag.
