Pick 'n Mix

Sweets that tingle on your tongue;
Sweets designed to tempt the young;
     Chocolate bars with fudge inside -
     Come on try one:  Open wide.

Sugared almonds, sticky rock;
Sweets that give your tongue a shock;
     Nougat, toffee, liquorice chews –
     Brittle centres, sweets that ooze.

Fruit bon bons and orange cream;
Huge gobstoppers?  They’re a dream.
     Peppermints and caramel
     And chocolate Easter eggs as well.

Sweets that look like walking sticks;
Those in jars or pick ‘n mix –
     Sugared gum drops, chocolate eggs - - 
      Not good for one’s toothy pegs.
     
Butterscotch and jelly beans;
Fruit pastilles in reds and greens,
     Mint humbugs - - - oh, sweets galore –
     But you’ll know oh so many more.
