Sherbet Fountains used to be a cardboard tube filled with sherbet with a stick of liquorice in it. They've been just the same for 35 years at least, as far as I can remember. A genuinely iconic British sweet. Sadly the manufacturers have decided to replace the lovely old cardboard and paper tube with a "more hygenic" resealable plastic one. The old ones are now no more. Another British institution fallen by the wayside. :-(
Looking on the bright side they still taste as good and now only contain natural colours and flavours and are suitable for vegetarians. I still miss the soggy cardboard though.
An absolute classic for all lovers of British liqorice. Hard sticks of shiny black liquorice, shaped like an oar with the word "Bassetti" imprinted on the flat bit. Perfectly designed for dipping into a bag of Sherbet (or Kali if you're from north of Watford or even Keli if you're north of the border!)
