Over 10 years since being removed from the sweet shop shelves, Opal Fruits are back to ‘make your mouth water’ – but only for a very limited time.

Mars is bringing back the sweets for just 12 weeks from this week – and only in Asda stores. Our spies have already been in and seen them, so get a pack while you can. The packaging is authentic too – the manufacturers having visited the Museum of Brands, in Notting Hill, and studied copies of the original distinctive yellow packaging.

Expect the original four flavours – orange, lemon, lime and strawberry – but this time with no artificial colours or flavours. But it’s not all good news – Mars bosses said that there are no plans to bring back Opal Fruits beyond the three months. Although they haven’t commented on the return of the Marathon.
