Description

We all love to munch on a sweet and everyone has their personal favourite. What's yours? A Raspberry Bullseye or a Sour Apple, a Lemon Bonbon or an Everton Mint? Maybe your hand always wandered towards the penny selection and the gooey delights of a Cola Bottle or chewy Pink Shrimp? Mouth watering a little? That's the great thing about sweets - they instantly bring back long lost childhood memories of the walk home from school and summer holidays. This book takes you on a journey round the glass jars and polished brass weighing scales of the traditional sweet shop. Each sweet profile will include a colour photograph and full specifications including: * sweet dimensions * texture rating * hero-to-zero rating (how long it lasts when sucked or chewed)
