Comparison with Other Brands of Midget Gems

Lions Midget Gems are not the only midget gems on the market. Other popular brands include Maynard's Midget Gems and there are a number of generic Midget Gems which are generally much softer and more jelly-like.. While each brand has its own unique flavour profile, Lions Midget Gems stand out for their use of natural colours and flavours.

Lions Midget Gems are known for their fruity flavours, but they also have a liquorice variant. According to Wikipedia, the black Midget Gems were changed from liquorice flavour to blackcurrant when the sweet was rebranded under the Maynard's banner. However, those sold loose, from jars and boxes, remain liquorice. Some of the newer bagged products have reintroduced the liquorice flavour.
