Spanish Root - nectar of the Gods. Proper sweets were still rationed when I was a kid, so sucking on that was a Godsend until the next batch of coupons became available.

The only proper sweets I had during/after the war was what the merchant navy men bought back with them from New York. When sweets came off the ration I eventually conned 3p off my old Ma but by the time I got to the shop they had sold out of literally everything! Scarred me for life as I took up smoking buttends instead!

cue versuvius from our gobs, 10pence well worth wasting
