Sherbet Fountains - One of our favourite sweets ever, and such a classic. If you need your memory jogging, they consist of a yellow tube filled with white zingy sherbet. They used to be in a cardboard tube and have the liquorice stick poking out, but the whole shebang is now encased in plastic.
In my time you were supposed to be able to suck the sherbet through the liquorice stick/straw, but I never managed this as it got all soggy and gooey. I would knock most of the sherbet back neat, and then finish the liquorice off by dipping in the remaining sherbet. It was totally ace!
