Sweet enough

What are toffee apples and candy floss all about?

Firstly, is there a worse invention in the world than the toffee apple?

They really do have very little going for them - a rock hard, sugary shell as hard as a cricket ball which must leave unscrupulous dentists rubbing their hands together with glee. And if you can break through it, you’re left with a soggy, shrivelled up apple which has probably been cocooned in its toffee prison for months.

Then there’s candy floss. So odd that the ultimate teeth rotter has floss in its title just like the dental variety.

Seeing a child bury their face in the equivalent of a sugary hedgerow is always an incredible sight - I’m sure it must be dangerous.

And I can only begin to imagine the nutritional value...
