Brilliant PR for Cybercandy, with its founder getting the whole of Young Times to herself (pure editorial coverage) in today’s paper.
The website sells sweets from around the world, with lots of unusual flavours and combos. Apparently, salty liquorice is popular in Scandinavia (although I haven’t heard about it before now, as part of the wider Scandi-food/culture trend – see post from January 2011).
Here are some picks from the website:
Turkish Pepper Lollipop – “a strong liquorice candy flavored with ammonium chloride (salmiakki) and pepper”
Other random ones: Plopp Salty Liquorice Double Bar, Bacon Gumballs, Insect candy (see post from May 2011)
Thanks to @OliviaCaldicott for the spot!
