Da werden Erinnerungen wach: Ein Lakritzstab und eine Papprolle mit Brause.
Nur leider hat man jetzt die Papprolle mit einer Plastiktube ersetzt.
Man dippt den Lakritzstab in die Brause und leckt ihn ab ... und ist stundenlang beschäftigt ;-)
In the UK, sherbet is a toothsome powdered treat (usually packaged as a Sherbet Fountain) that ranks right up there with humbugs, aniseed balls and candy cigarettes as a reminder of our tooth-rotting, sepia-tinted youth. Many an English schoolchild spent his weekly pocket-money on bright yellow cardboard tubes with a length of bright black liquorice sticking out of the end. Sherbet Fountain? They looked more like sticks of dynamite than sugary water-features!
Was there ever a confectionery as inconvenient as the sherbet fountain? The tube always went soggy, the sticky black liquorice always clogged up after the first suck, and the whole thing left you wreathed in clouds of dust. You always ended up eating the straw and then slugging the fizzy powder straight from the tube. All this got you was a nose full of the dust that made you sneeze and a mouth full of fizz that made you cough, yet still you went back for more.
Unfortunately, they have replaced the cardboard tube with a plastic one, so you don't get the soggy fun anymore. But everything else has remained the same.
