Hey, guess what I’ve just eaten? No, not a whole buffet tray of vol-au-vents and a family-sized black forest gateau, that was last night. No, I’ve just had some cough candy. Man alive they’re weird sweeties aren’t they? Herbal and aniseedy – a bit metally – and surely a throwback to days when we didn’t have nice things to put in sweets (probably invented at the same time as dandelion and burdock and root beer). It’s one of those tastes that isn’t exactly bad, but it surely can’t be good, can it? This is exactly how I felt about olives at first – now I love them to bits. I think I’m going to have another sweetie.
Oh, and I’ve updated my about page which was about 3 years out of date!
