Fruit Pastilles (6/8)

List item

Any list of British sweets would be remiss without mention of these fruity round gumdrops! Fruit Pastilles are small, round gumdrops which contain fruit juice and come in five different, delicious flavours (in the original type): blackcurrant, strawberry, orange, lemon and lime. They were invented by the brothers Henry and Joseph Rowntree at their cocoa works in York in 1881. It seems that a lot of sweets have originated from York! 49 million sharing bags are sold per year in the UK. Fruit Pastilles are owned by Nestlé.
