In 1899, a sales representative supposedly dropped a tray of samples he was showing a client in Leicester, mixing up the various sweets. After he scrambled to re-arrange them, the client was intrigued by the new creation. Quickly the company began to mass-produce the allsorts and they became very popular.
Liquorice allsorts consist of a mixture of liquorice, sugar, coconut, aniseed, jelly and fruit flavourings. An all time favourite!
