Traditional Sweets

Did you know...Maynard's claim to have invented Wine Gums in the early 1900s, when Charles Gordon Maynard decided to create a sweet that would appeal specifically to adults, but not to upset his teetotal father, wine was never used in the sweets, The same can be said for Pear Drops that date back to the Victorian era, as in the case of Wine Gums, no pears are used in Pear Drops the distinctive taste comes from painstaking years of attention paid to the correct flavouring to give the sweet that lovely burst of taste.
