McVities now does UNICORN Gems and they're even more magical than Iced Gems

IF you’re a fan of the old school classic that is Iced Gems then you need to listen up as you can now get your hands on UNICORN Gems.
The sweet treats are made by McVitie’s, which also manufactures regular Iced Gems, and they see mini biscuits topped with colourful icing.
McVitie’s Morrisons and Tesco are selling new Unicorn Gems for £1
It’s unclear if there’s any difference between the two other than the packet as they both have raspberry, blackcurrant, and lemon flavoured toppings.
But the Unicorn Gems do seem to be available in a wider variety of colours.
We’ve put this to McVitie’s and we’ll update this story as soon as we get a response. We’ve also asked if the treats are limited edition or if they’re here to stay.
If you want to get your mitts on the biccies we could only find them being sold online at Morrisons and Tesco.
You get six 23g packets for £1 at both supermarkets, making it about 17p a packet – bargain.
That’s the same price as both retailers charge for traditional Iced Gems, although while these are 23g a pack at Morrisons they’re a larger 25g at Tesco.
This could explain the difference in calories too, as the 25g Iced Gems contain 100 calories compared to 92 calories in the Unicorn Gems.
An adult man should eat around 2,500 calories a day while it’s 2,000 for a woman, according to NHS guidelines.
Some shoppers are loving the shake-up with one fan commenting on McVitie’s Instagram page: “My little girl got so excited to see these today thank you @mcvitiesofficial you have made her very happy.”
But others aren’t impressed. One Instagram user wrote: “Rubbish! I bought these today and they are just normal gems. No unicorn magic! Gutted.”
