Square glass jars of strawberry bonbons and pear drops sat on a dusty old shelf with cream soda, hard toffees and raisin biscuits. Then raspberry ripple ice cream and sticky treacle arrived with intense cinnamon candies and old-school liquorice with a woody dryness that hinted at cereals and oak. With water, we emerged with paper bags bursting with rhubarb and custard sweets, strawberry laces and toffee apples. A sweet mix of Christmas spices flowed over black cherries and herbs to suggest thick cough syrup from a spoon. An orange sherbet fizz now danced on the tongue with cloves, mint and dark chocolate to finish.
