Ooh, the dark, mysterious and altogether more grown up Black Jack…

    Fruit Salad any day, the raspberry is tangy on my tongue without painting it a different colour, and the associative memory of the taste takes me back to the sweet shop as a kid, the orange and yellow wrapper standing out from it’s counterparts. They were always included in my selection!

    To be honest, both used to get stuck in my braces when I’d secretly buy them at the tuck shop without mum (or my dentist! knowing! The only advantage of sneaking the fruit salads was that they didn’t leave the tell-tale black tongue afterwards – ensuring my ‘illegal’sweet consumption was well hidden!! 🙂

    Blackjacks – the taste, the chew and the whole black tongue thind makes for a heavenly experience!

    It’s all about the fruit salads. I read on the internet that they count as one of your five a day! That’s a fact people…

    Fruit Salads FTW… Black Jacks taste like Sambucca and bring back far too many memories, well actually thats a lie I can’t remember those nights at all but I do remember the taste 🙂

    To be honest I think a bit of both are needed!!! Childish, sweet fruit salads that remind you of being young and provide you with some healthy ‘fruit’! 😛 Balanced out with dark, bitter but utterly tasty black jacks that blacken your tongue in a fun and delicious way! Impossible to pick one!!! 🙂

    Thanks everyone for all your great comments!

    We really loved them all, but Amy’s sticky braces put an especially big smile on our face 🙂

    Have a happy Monday everyone, and keep reading the Chewbz blog for more sweet-based musings!
