Loads of recipes for sweets here, some you’ll know well like acid drops, curly wurlys and humbugs, others less familiar like Hawick Balls, Nutty Nubs & Peggy’s Leg also jostling for attention. Adele Nozedar has travelled to all points of the land to search out the history of British sweets, the regional favourites, where and how they were invented and – for true aficionados she includes recipes so you can have a go at creating your favourites even for such well known sweets as Polo Mints and Smarties. Britain has a huge and varied amount of sweets on offer, find out about the crème de la crème in Great British Sweets.
