By the way, does anyone remember liquorice root? (Not really a sweet as such, but I thought I'd ask.)
A bit late I know, but does this look like a twig? if so then that dipped in American cream soda was my favorite =P~

That's correct, used to chew on the ends and finish up with what looked like a paintbrush.
It was actually a mild laxative but I wasn't aware of it at the time. :D

I remember when our neighbour gave my baby brother a glass of home made ginger beer. He took a mouthful spat it out and wanted to know who put the prickles in it.
