Salty Shakers

New from Venco, these liqs have a strange shape—a bit like a raised triangle—and a divine taste with a peppery undertone, not far removed from the recently reviewed Oldtimers. In fact these sweets don't know whether they want to be salty or peppery with the word 'Droppeppers' written above the description 'salty shakers'. They do pack an almost chilli-like kick. And there is another strange undertone, reminiscent of the boiled aniseed candy which we could buy at our local town fair. At once thoroughly old-fashioned (in taste) and fashionably abstract (in shape), this will appeal to jaded liqs eaters who thought they'd tried everything.

One for seasoned veterans—my husband nearly gagged on it.
