Sometimes you didn’t always want a minty taste and at the end of the nineties there was a hard holey sweet that was zingy and sharp at the same time and then they disappeared very suddenly as soon as the noughties kicked in – welcome to the world of Citrus Sharp Polos.
I remember really liking these and always found it hard to just have one. Citrus Sharp Polos were bright green and had a very specific smell to them when you opened the packet. It was very fresh and fruity and had a very citrus smell to them.
They really were a great Polo and there has been many campaigns to try and bring them back over the years and none have been successful sadly. I hope they do one day because they were a strong taste of my childhood and they were just great!
