Sherbet Fountain

Joy, from the first mind-boggling hit of inhaled sherbet to the last centimetre of liquorice.

Fruit polos

Short-lived and inconveniently sticky, but far more delicious and better looking than their minty ancestor.

Curly Wurly

An improbably long lattice of caramel covered in chocolate. Stringy or brittle depending on the weather.

Sugar mice

Hardcore. Several grams of pure icing sugar compressed into a mouse-shaped solid with a string tail.

Space Dust

They said that if you swallowed two packs and washed them down with Coca-Cola, you would explode.
