Joanne's Top 7 Sweets
||Pacers - like Opal Fruits, but minty
with 3 green stripes. Cool? Not really.
||Spangles - boring boiled sweets but
so full of sugar and chemical colouring that excessive consumption
was akin to taking class As, hence the phrase "I got dead spangled".
||Red Licorice Laces - locorice which
was red, and in the form of laces! Cool? Can be, especially if stretched
and used as a whip.
||Extra Hot Gobstoppers - little boiled
sweets that lasted forever and burned the skin off your throat on
the way down. Cool? No, hot actually and really good for lobbing at
||Sherbert Flying Saucers - a classic
amongst sweets, dump the saucer bit and use the fizzy sherbert for
wicked Exorcist impressions.
||Bonbons - weird, chalky and chewy,
but always a fave. Throwability: go for miles, sting like a bitch
and stick when wet.
||Coconut Mushrooms - small shaped caramel
and coconut dipped sweets, look grotty, taste grotty but pet dogs
