Palm Toffee

Palm Toffee was a slab of toffee with a flavour going through the middle, and each bar had a wrapper emblazoned with a palm tree. The different flavours available included strawberry, with a pink middle; mint, with a green middle, and banana, with, yes you guessed it, a yellow middle running through the bar!. The entire teeth-achingly sweet slab of toffee measured about five inches by two inches. It was also incredibly hard hard and you had to break it before you opened it by bashing it on sthe table or floor. That can't be very good for kids' teeth now, can it?

      I bought this toffee in 1936. I lived in Bulawayo at that time. The slab cost me one penny, a fortune for me in those days. The shop from where I bought my treat was a shabby wooden construction, owned by a Chinese person. How he ever landed up in Bulawayo in the 1930, is an interesting thought.
