Sweet Talk: The Secret History of Confectionery (in Great Britain)
Nicholas Whittaker. Whatever happened to Cadbury’s Aztec, Dobson’s Moon Pebbles, Ogo-Pogo Eyes & Dr. Smile’s Bronchials? Why do some people still think swallowing gum is fatal? Who thought up lines like: ‘It’s the honeycomb middle that weighs so little’? These questions & hundreds more are discussed here -- a celebration, chronology & pop-cultural history of 20th-century confectionery in Great Britain. The book is filled with stories of forgotten brands & traces patterns of consumption as well as exploring the murky world of sweet manufacturing. From the days when marshmallows were made with horse glue for chewiness to the lollipop tax to the recent multi-million-pound launch of the Fuse Bar, the book provides an irreverent & humorous blend of fact & trivia.
