Rowntree’s Fruit Pastilles (rebranded in Australia as Wonka Fruit Pastilles after the 1988 acquisition of Rowntree’s by NestlĂ©, and as Frutips in Canada) are small round British candy measuring about 1.5 cm/0.6 in in diameter.They have a jelly-like consistency due to the gelatin they are made from, and are covered with sugar. Fruit Pastilles contain fruit juice and come in five delicious flavors – lemon (yellow), lime (green), strawberry (red), blackcurrant (purple) and orange (orange).
Fruit Pastilles were first made in Fawdon, Tyneside, England in 1881. Before then, manufacture of gums and pastilles had been a French monopoly. They are also commonly known as Mao chews in Burnley, NW England.
