250g tin of Jesmona Black Bullets
These are an absolute favourite that don't seem to have changed an iota..
Take yourself back to your childhood, Jesmona specialise in classic confectionery that tastes as good now as it did back then. Our Black Bullets are a very traditional mint flavoured sweet, whose origins are lost in the mists of time. Black Bullets themselves are a fairly typical sweet from the North East of England where the word "Bullet" is a dialectic term for any boiled sweet. One myth surrounding Black Bullets is that they derive their distinctive shape and size from having been made in the moulds for musket balls. On a historical note, this sweet was also a favourite with coal miners in the North East of England the really tough days of mining!!
