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.
