Product information

A favourite of school kids since 1925, Barratt Sherbet Fountains recently received a significant change to their packaging – the famous cardboard tube being replaced with a plastic one. Shock horror!

Thankfully, the taste of Barratt Sherbet Fountains remains the same, whilst the plastic tube is designed to appeal to a new generation of youngsters.

The new packaging is also re-sealable, helping the sherbet fountain to stay fresher for longer.

Most popular with customers in United States of America (USA), France, Canada, Spain, Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Greece and Australia, but you can buy Barratt Candyland Sherbet Fountains for delivery worldwide.

3 starsRobert from Poland on

Barratt sherbert fountain is something of a favourite from my childhood the hard licquorice stick and the tangy fizzy sherbert the product has changed somewhat from my younger days the liquorice stick is now soft therefore sticky the sherbert powder easily cakes therefore becoming hard, therefore, the two items are no longer a match in heaven they taste ok but ok is as good as it gets

As a kid, I always looked forward to Sherbet Fountains in my lunchbox as an occasional treat. Boy, did I get all sticky and messy! It was worth it though. The tanginess of the powder was my favorite part of it all. Shake up the tube and either dip the liquorice stick into the sherbet or eat the powder first and then munch on the liquorice afterwards. Either way, its a real treat, especially for kids.

I'm giving it 5 stars because I loved. It it was just as I remembered it tasting from years ago but it was purchased for my son that did not like it at all. Shake it a bit before you open it up so the sherbet is loosened. It was a bit annoying to close it back up to save it for later though, the licorice did not want to go back into the powder.

5 starsStephen from Sweden on

Personally I miss the old paper packaging, and from reading other reviews I feel I'm not alone in that. However the contents are still just as wonderful as ever and a great little treat now and again. Wouldn't want to over do the sherbert but if that lquorice was available to buy on it's own, I think they would be sitting on a goldmine.

3 starsKelley from United States on

The liquorice flavour was very good. I loved how the liquorice was used to "scoop" up the powder. I wasn't so impressed with the powder though. It was caked and hard. The flavour didn't really seem to mix well with the liquorice. Ended up throwing out the powder and just eating the liquorice.

5 starsEileen from Canada on

A few years ago on a trip 'back home' I bought multiple packages of sherbet fountains, they were of course in paper then as they had always been.

To make a long story short one broke in my suitcase and as luck would have it I was stopped by customs, white powder all over my clothes, suffice to say that is an hour of my life that I will never get back!

Pleased to see they have changed the packaging as I still do enjoy these little treats.

3 starsIan from Germany on

This product was a favourite amongst schoolkids of my generation.

It was packed perfectly in paper, the liquorice stick was in the middle and surrounded by a wonderfully tangy powder.

I was, and still am not a big fan of the liquorice but make a sacrifice in order to be able to eat the lovely sherbet.

4 starsSarah from Spain on

If your a sherbet lover then this is the sweet for you. I remember as a child really enjoying it, now 40 years on nothing has changed. It has to be stored in a cool dry place. The sherbet tends to stick together but a few taps and it loosens quite well. The liquorice stick gets really sticky once you start tucking in but its one of those treats you can go back to later. I highly recommend it.

3 starsMaria Teresa from Italy on

Oh Dear, here we go again. Something original changed just for changes sake! How are we supposed to enjoy this lovely sherbet and liquorice delight when the packaging refuses to work with us. it was a cute thing when the paper tube gave in but they're is no soul in plastic! Bad move Barratt.

5 starsLinda from Sweden on

Sherbet Fountains are childishly fun! The way it sizzles in your mouth and the dipping of that liquorice stick! How can you not love it lol Even if the sherbet goes hard it still tastes wonderful and you can always use something else to scrape it out once the stick runs out! I hate missing one single little crumb of sherbet.

4 starsMarc from Netherlands on

I don't think anyone ever actually managed to suck all the sherbet through the liquorice straw before it became soggy and clogged. I used to knock the sherbet back in one or two gulps and eat the straw separately. Will have to add one of these to my order to see how the health and safety conscious plastic has affected the taste and experience.

4 starsKaren from Germany on

I saw the fountains whilst placing my order recently and thought "ooh!". I loved them when I was a kid (which was a few decades ago...) and the sight of them made me very nostalgic. So I ordered 2. The sherbet is still good, I must admit, and the liquorice stick, too. But the wrapping is all plastic now! I know everything has to be safe and hygienic these days, but it's not the same as way back then, when, by the time half the sherbet was gone, the paper was soggy and you ended up with bits of it in your mouth. :-) But that's just me. :-) Anybody who never experienced the delights of the paper wrapping will find the fountains very good! :-)

5 starsJessica from France on

I actually order these for my mum who loved them as a kid and there is nothing similar in France so she's always really happy when I get a few for her. Being just liquorice and sherbet they will keep for ages as long as they are kept dry so the powder doesn't stick together.

3 starsLiam from Netherlands on

I have mixed feelings regarding Barratt Sherbet Fountains. I love liquorice and sherbet but the execution wasn't perfect. The sherbet was caked and hard, I had to shake it many times to get it loose. The liquorice stick is soft which means that it gets messy very quickly, and you end up with sticky fingers.
