Sugar Mice were about 2 1/2 inches long, shaped like a mouse and made of solid sugar, with a little string tail, and the eyes and nose marked on in dots. They came in pink and white (possibly other colours?) They didn't taste of anything besides sugar, but they were fun, and once you'd eaten one, you could suck on the piece of string for hours. Actually, they're still made, if my Mum can find them, she usually sends me a couple for Christmas. And yes, the tail is still real string.
