Wish he brought back a box or five of rhubarb rock, iron bru bars and tablet instead! :P

Hahahaaa - must be LEE'S macaroon bars! Toothache in a bar!

I make tablet for friends around Scotland and England... I find it too sweet - and since being diabetic I am unable to even pinch a wee corner.

Oh, and just to make you drool.... scroll down this page... RHUBARB rock!

I find it a bit overpowering as a drink, but incorporate it into lots of puddings, such as cranachan or when requiring a whisky cream.


BTW - Scottish whisky is always without an 'e' .... whiskEy is Irish or American bourbon-type whiskey....!
Thanks for your enlightening Izzy, both for the info on drambuie and the spelling!! I must remember it well as I much prefer Scotch to Bourbon!!

It makes a great addition to a chocolate sauce for profiteroles or ice cream.

Hah! Granny Sookers and Soor Plums! I'd forgotten about them!

Mmm do have my eye on the ginger and clove rock though, sounds good.

There is a place which is about 80km from here that I visit occasionally, it stocks rhubarb rock, but it recently changed owners. Heres hoping they still stock it.

If you ever get to the Capital, there is/was (last visit 3 yrs ago) a shop in Federation Square in Canberra which stocks lots of British sweets. All a bit twee as it's meant to look kind of early 1900s.. but my sister uses that place for her UK sugar fixes!

There's a couple of old fashioned sweet shops in Windsor (NSW) that have a range of overseas sweets too.

There is no such thing as a little garlic.
