Madame Laudanum popped down to her local chemist, and found a tin of liquorice lozenges. Called Nigroids. Through a bit of Googling, we discover that the manufacturer of said Nigroid liquorice lozenges – Ernest Jackson & Co. Ltd – are apparently owned by Cadbury’s.
I’m still rather amazed they’re still called that. What possible reason would you have for calling liquorice lozenges Nigroids ?!
2010 Update: They now appear to be called Vigroids. Which is nice.
