Pompomania
Liquorice Allsorts are in my Top Five Sweets Of All Time. The yellow or pink coconut rolls are my faves. Guess what?! You can buy packets of just those ones. They should be called Liquorice Sorts.

TIP
To make the nasty blue one (the one that gets left in the packet until you are desperate for something to eat) wind three shades of blue yarn together across 
a 3.5cm (1 ⅜in) maker.
