Darrell has found a sweet shop in Stourbridge called Jessica’s which he says ticks all the boxes for what he looks for in an establishment of a confectionary type nature ……. he came back with eyes so wide they put me in mind of the enormous gobstoppers he had brought home with him!He said they had rows and rows of jars of suckie sweets, as far as the eye could see ….. too many too mention and all within his budget.
And a pick n mix selection that made him think that he had died and gone to heaven, what is he like?But the confectionary that had the biggest impact on him were the Olympic Size Mallows ……“Just one would take me at least a week to eat” he sighed dreamily. We are thinking about sending Lord Coe one to nibble on while he goes on one of his many Olympic Park inspections!
Darrell was a little overwhelmed by the mahoooosive choice at Jessica’s, “Sometimes too much choice is as bad as not enough” he said whimsically ….. but he still managed to bring home several of the aforementioned enormous gobstoppers, an assortment of unusual flavoured lollipops, (Bakewell Tart to mention one), and naturally an Olympic sized mallow!! Darrell is also wondering if Jessica has a significant other because if she was single he might offer his hand in marriage ……. oh good grief!!
