Aniseed Balls are a traditional favourite, like little gobstoppers and with a strong aniseed flavour. They are shiny and dark brownish red, and hard like Gobstoppers, but generally only 1cm across. They are generally sold by weight, for example bc quarter pound in traditional sweet shops and from online sweet shops in the UK and Ireland.
They are made using 'anise seed', having a very strong aniseed flavour, and last for a long time in the mouth before dissolving. In the centre of the ball is a whole anise seed that can be crushed.Yum!If Aniseed Balls are your thing, then one of these beauties will keep you aniseeded up for a very, very long time!
Love Hearts Sweets - the making (or breaking) of many a childhood romance!
The messages may have changed a bit over the years - I certainly don't remember "Fax Me", "Email Me" and "Page Me" when I was a kid - but they still taste yummy and they still have old favourites like "Keep Cool" and "Be Mine".
We've been known, to our shame, to just throw a bunch of Love Hearts sweets in our mouth at the same time and crunch them all to bits. Forget the individual flavours - sometimes, you've just got to do what feels right!
After a long and very distressing absence, the magic that was the Cadbury's Wispa Chocolate Bar is back - and it's just as scrummy as it was when it launched back in 1981.
Wispa made its comeback after several online campaigns. Cadbury finally gave way to the huge amount of pressure from loving fans and the Wispa Chocolate Bar came back as a result of some massive online campaigns. The power of the internet means that Cadbury's Wispa bar is once again available!
