Liquorice Allsorts - English Candy Jars

Liquorice allsorts is one of those culinary creations that started accidentally when a tray of candy samples about to be shown to a client was dropped.  Hastily and haphazardly re-arranged by the clumsy employee, the client was intrigued by the new creations.  The Bassett company quickly put these candies into production.

That was in 1899 and ever since, they have been a part of every British kids' childhood as well as being popular in many other countries.

They look great when they're all mixed up and so when we made some miniature ones for our Etsy store, we decided that rather than putting them in a packet, the best way to see these colourful treats would be in a beautiful glass jar.

And here they are!

You can find them in our Etsy store here.

Do you like allsorts?  Do they have even them in your country?  Let us know in the comments :)
