I just had a sherbet fountain. You know, the cardboard tube full of sherbet with a piece of liquorice sticking out. You use the liquorice as a straw to suck out the contents.

Has anyone ever had one of these that works the way it's supposed to?

All my life: the recurrent, wearying disappointment of sherbet that never fountains.






Alas!

I don't think I'd know what a sherbet fountain was even if one walked up to me and introduced itself.
LOL

I always used to give Mum the liquorice and eat the sherbet with a spoon. Ohh you make me want to eat one.

I am firmly in the anti-licorice camp and so just eat the sherbet bits. Or Pixy Stix, which are close enough. But I sympathize with your disappointment.

Since we started to sell retro sweets, I've come to realise that the memory is much nicer than the actual sweets. Sherbet Flying Saucers are quite ick after a couple and you certainly don't want to jam a gob stopper in your mouth any more. I have rediscovered refresher chews and drumstick lollies though :))

Speaking of fizzy...
Ooh - I saw something evil today: Mentos in ice cubes for booby-trapping cola based drinks.

Mint mentos when frozen in ice cubes (be sure the water is close to freezing before putting them in or they will go soggy before they freeze) and added to cola based drinks will (It is alleged)explode with froth when the ice melts and the mentos come into contact with the cola.

Okay. A mere frat party prank, but funny to think about.

I have never had one work yet, but I loves them just the same.
