    I’d love to win these sweets because my youngest son loves them, he’s the only one brave enough in our family to eat them! He says the lemon is the sourest and the watermelon is the least sour, so if I’m lucky enough to win I’ll be having a watermelon one to celebrate!! My son has just called me a wuss!!! Lol

    I would like to win,
    A little orange tin,
    Full of sour sweets,
    To give my tongue a treat.

    I don’t think it would hurt,
    To see their faces sucked in,
    Would really make me grin!

    Consider my little rhyme
    And pick me as the lucky girl
