Do you know your candy?










Want to join in a little fun on SCS, do you have a sweet tooth?
How well do your know your sour plums from your bulls eyes?
Eight bags of sweets can you name them?

OMG I am most definitely a sweet tooth....Here is my take on names those sweety bags
1. Liquorice Torpedoes
2. Kola Kubes
3. Sherbert Strawberries
4. Edinburgh Rock
5. Sherbert Pips
6. Pear Drops
7. Barratts Shrimps
8. Gobstoppers

Now you have triggered the need for sugar......should I stamp for guilt free sugar treat or indulge and and have a rummage through the kids trick or treat bags? LOL
