It's been said that Scots are the world's most voracious consumers of sweeties and chocolate. Journalist Deedee Cuddihy decided to test the veracity of this claim...
The result is "Scottish Sweetie Addicts and Chocoholics" in which people across the nation reveal their love for such delicacies as Hawick Balls, Highland Toffee, champagne truffles, tablet, Haribo, Soor Plums and good old Dairy Milk.
Read about the mum who eats Pic 'n' Mix in the bath; the woman who accidentally gave someone a moth ball instead of a pan drop; how they get chocolate onto the island of St. Kilda and the time inmates at a Scottish prison rioted when their shop ran out of Mars bars.
Warning: May cause increased sweetie and chocolate eating!
