September 29, 2007
Today I was inordinately pleased to find gelatine-free gummy sweets on sale.

Of course, they are stuffed full of artificial colours and flavours, but no boiled down bones. (I can still remember the horror on the face of a vegetarian former flatmate, when I explained to her exactly what went into the jelly she loved.)

It is odd that while my taste in chocolate is fairly sophisticated, in sweets (candies, for my American friends) I have a weakness for startlingly coloured sugary confections and sherbet. My mouth still waters at the thought of a 'flying saucer' dissolving on my tongue.
