The misery of a runny nose and a boakey throat are beginning to lift…hurrah! Not quite back to normal but way better than I was earlier this week. To that end I decided to treat myself and the kids to some ‘sweeties’ or candy for those of you not from the UK. Luckily for me there is a top quality shop very near to my home in Girvan which specialises in sweets. So off I went and I found…Vimto Creams!
You can see the jar they come in below. I asked for two ‘quarters’. Sweets in Scotland are measured in the old imperial system of pounds and ounces and a quarter is a quarter pound of sweets by weight. The sweets looked, felt and tasted great.
You can see them and buy them (if you are not in Girvan…very likely) here. Give them a try.
Cheered me right up!
