Guzzle Puzzle...?





I have these just before I indulge myself with a sherbet fountain.

  1. Would never be allowed in the U.S. Sexual overtones, you know.

  2. Pearl: I'm surprised it's still being shown over here!

  3. Gay candies? Fornicating fruit drops? What kind of sweet shops do you have over there, Scarlet?? ;-)

  4. Ponita: And let's not forget sucking on Quilley's or a Fisherman's Friend... as demonstrated by Mrs Pouncer HERE.

  5. You have no idea how badly I want to use the phrase "sucking on a Fisherman's Friend"...

    ReplyDelete
  6. Pearl: Do they not have them in the States?
    I will have to send you some so that you can use the phrase.
    Sx

  7. We have them in Canada... I don't know about the US. Personally, I don't like them.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Ponita: They are something of an acquired taste!
    Much better saved for when you have a stuffy nose.

  9. "sherbet fountain"

    I am almost afraid to ask if this is an euphemism...

    ReplyDelete
  10. Wherever... and whatever... they haven't been seen north of the border

    Not that we need them, mind...

  11. My dear Scarlet, I am quite surprised at you. When the disgusting advert appeared on television, I was just treating myself to a nice cream horn and I nearly choked on it. I had to have several sips of my favourite Redbush to recover.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Miss Scarlet:
    As we have no television we have not seen these advertisements and can only hope [if all standards of decency are not to be lost] that they appear after the nine o' clock watershed.

    Whatever happened to steadfast Spangles?!!!! No hanky panky with them.

  13. bubblegummed....or gubblebummed?

    Of course, my innocent mind never noticed the sexual references until you pointed it out. Bad influence you are! (Either that or I'm just a gannet).

    Whateva!

  14. I'll have to watch it again. I missed the sexual overtones. Not for the first time.

    ReplyDelete
  15. ARe these called rubber caps?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Sex Sells!

    Now everyone can indulge in smutty little sweeties.

  17. Mr Lax: Have you never had a Sherbet Fountain, Mr Lax?
    I should open a British sweet shop in the States.

    Macey: I think I'm the only twit that's noticed it.

    Ms Jessop: Did you know that Lakeland [retailer of all things essential] recently had a flood of customers struggling to find moulds for their cream horns.
    Do you make your own Camilla?

    The Top-Hats: Yes, what did happen to Spangles? But in all truthfulness, they weren't really very nice!

    Bux: Apologies!! Oh dear... and they are probably a joy to suck on as well.

    Fag break... before it rains.

  18. As a child, I remember being offered a finger of fudge with a personalised rendition of the memorable song... "a finger of fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat..."

    ReplyDelete
  19. Pat: I know, sometimes I can easily be distracted from sexual overtones with something as simple as a cup of tea and a Hob-Nob.

    Mr Mags: I think the name Rubber Caps was rejected, simply because it was suggestive of a type of poisonous mushroom.
    People think in mysterious ways.

    Princess: It just makes you wonder who these sweets are being marketed at!

    Sx

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wendy: I was never satisfied with a Finger of Fudge. I needed something bigger, like a Mars bar. Or a Double Decker.
    Sx

  21. Pearl is right! The U.S. is full of such a bunch of tight asses that we'd never see that played over here. Maybe if they edited out the wink. Sad.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I always cut straight to the sherbert fountain, but have never mastered the art of sucking the sherbert through the liquorice tube. Always leaves me with sticky lips

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've never seen them before. I missed the sexual overtones too. And as they're both men, that would probably prevent a US showing as well. I think I'll settle for a nice cup of tea and a choccy digestive.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I need to make a list of candy to try the next time in the UK!

  25. Sherbet fountain...

    Is that like a Vodka Fountain?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I was always fond of the sherbet dibdab. xx

    ReplyDelete
  27. Percy filth! I had sweets for tea tonight, a box of toffee poppets and a bag of rowntrees fruit pastiles sours. Delicious.

    For a skip down memory lane click here for the sweetie shop. I got quite excited after seeing fizzy lizzies and coconut mushrooms again. I'll have one of them, one of them, one of them, one of them...

    ReplyDelete
  28. I used to like 'Bonker Bars' as a kid! (They were local sweeties, for local kids!, I don't think they travelled.) :¬)

  29. Will be back later... dental work... which is quite fitting with this post....
    Sx

  30. Mr Banish: I agree... that wink is definitely lascivious.

    Mr Bene: Only once have I managed to suck up all the sherbert And swallow. I see it as a personal failing.

    Nick: Yep, I'm gagging for a cuppa.

    Mr Lax: Lemon Bon Bons!!! Now they really do have something to do with the state of my teeth.

    MJ: I'm thinking that the Vodka and sherbet would be a good mix... an interesting cocktail.

    Lulu: Are dibdabs like the flying saucers... with rice paper?
    Oh, I loved those.

    Mitzi: Despite my teeth I am salivating. I want the retro Foam Sweetie Jar for Christmas.

    Mr Maps: Indeed, Mr Maps! I have searched and the Bonkers Bar does appear to be unique to Ireland!

  31. I look forward to full details of your dentist's toilet facilities.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Nick: Funny you should mention this because I visited the dentist's toileting facilities on my previous visit...and got locked in.
    Most embarrassing.
    Sx

    ReplyDelete
  33. Mr Mags: No drill today, just a major clean up. Still not a pleasant experience though.
    Big extraction in October.
    Thank you for asking.
    Sx

  34. Another date to look foward to ...

    ReplyDelete
  35. You don't snort sherbet, do hyou?

    ReplyDelete
  36. One of my favourite things to do is to get a mouthful of sherbet from a fountain.

    ReplyDelete
  37. if our candy could fuck,
    it would be a much better world.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Two packs for a Euro today in our local Tesco, couldn't resist! YUM! :¬)

  39. The last time I attempted to indulged myself with a sherbet fountain I got banned from our local sweet shop...Perhaps I should have paid for it first...

    ReplyDelete
  40. Helo world. I'm back. You can start with the innuendo again now.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hello, Dave, good to see you back.
    Unfortunately I am not blogging at the moment due to a general apathy that has set in since you have been away.
    And even if I had something to blog about, I can't be doing with the new Blogger interface, which is an irritation too far.
    Hope you had a good holiday and I look forward to reading about your adventures - blimey, this is reading like one of my standard resignation letters....
    Sx

    ReplyDelete
  42. Pull yourself together girl. Or do you want me to come down there and sort you out?

    Is that haystack still there? Ah, happy memories.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I am resting.
    I am languishing on my chaise longue with one hand carelessly resting in a bowl of grapes...
    Sx

    ReplyDelete
  44. Where is the other hand casually resting?

    ReplyDelete
  45. ps. I sent you a message on FB. Have you seen it? Did you get my postcard?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh yes!!! I did get the postcard - it was a bird with fangs?!
    But Facebook sent me an email today telling me that it was no longer emailing me with updates... and if Facebook no longer emails then I will forget to log into my account. So I will log in now.
    Thank you for the postcard.
    Sx

    ReplyDelete
  47. IN case FB hasn't told you, I've just replied to your comment.

    Most of what I said on the pastcard turned out to be rubbish, of course, but I hope it raised a smile of sorts.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yes, your postcard did raise a smile. Still puzzled as to why the bird had fangs though?
    Sx

    ReplyDelete
  49. It was a puffin, and it had a few small fish grasped in its beak.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh... I see now.

    Am definitely logging off now.

  51. Never mind sexual overtones, I'm just surprised I have any teeth left after the mountainous quantities of sugar-laden sweets I consumed as a child. I was even partial to spoonfuls of sugar for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hello M'dears, apologies for not answering your comments... but I will say that it's nice to see you Jane... you should pop by more often...
    And I also agree with Ms Norma about candy... I don't snort sherbert Mr Chairman... Mr Joey.... you are very naughty...
    and Mr Maps, were they nice? I really want to try them.
    Mr Logs...tut, tut... fancy getting caught.
    Miss Nurse, I want a catdonkey! A real one... not an ornamental one.
    Nick: Aargh!! Spoonfuls of sugar??? I uased to make honey sandwiches with digestive biscuits though... so who am I to criticise you?

    Right then, I am very busy at the moment. I seem to be a calligrapher/property finder all of a sudden and both roles are proving to be time consuming, but it's not forever. There will be low points of activity.
    Anyhow, I will be back when I have time.
    Luv you!!!

  53. Miss Scarlet, at some U-Bahn stations they have us mind the gap, in German and English!

    ReplyDelete
  54. "Please tell Scarlet that I said thanks, but I have done that and it didn't do me any good. When I run my malware software, it says I have no malware. I've done it twice."

    Message from Judy. Night night!

  55. I like to pull this same maneuver on strangers at the market, "Consider yourself bubblegummed!"

    It's much more polite than screaming, "Surprise, buttsecks!"

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oooh... we don't have them there up our way, either.

    Mind you, our Tangfastics seem to be overpopulated with the little doodads that look like pustulated gonads.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I was the sherbet fountain champion two years in a row in the late 70s. I wonder if I could still do that...

    ReplyDelete
  58. Scarlet : in answer to your question about the tallest tree in 2011:-
    "Michael W. Taylor (born April 25, 1966, in Los Angeles) is a leading discoverer of champion and tallest trees - most notably Coast Redwoods. In 2006, Michael co-discovered the tallest known tree in the world, a coast redwood (sequoia) now named "Hyperion". He also discovered "Helios" and "Icarus", the 2nd and 3rd tallest."

  59. I used to have condensed milk and jam sandwiches .....yum . Do you remember tiger nuts ?

  60. Please come back soon. I really miss you.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Tomorrow was today - was it "interesting"?
    I hope you are not in payne, my dear!

    ReplyDelete
  62. You're not still filing your nails, are you, Ms Scarlet? Your loyal readers are getting restless...

    ReplyDelete
  63. Looking forward to a picture of your toothy grin. :-)


    Ooooh!! wv is 'quicki'. How rude!!

  64. Hello M'dears!
    Unfortunately I won't be back for a while, as I am house hunting next week.

    But I will be back, possibly with the FGES over my head.... and possibly in disguise....!
