The Black Jack site is up and running. Yes – a website dedicated entirely to the aniseed, mouth-staining, divide-people-like-marmite wonder that is the Black Jack. http://www.blackjacksweets.com/
BJ aficionado Lee Dalloway has lovingly gathered a lot of information, pictures and stories about this humble sweet. Talking of her childhood, a Lydia confesses, “I liked Black Jacks because many of the other kids didn’t like them, so I used to buy them so I didn’t have to share. I know it sounds bad, but I’d still do the same now…”
You’ll discover some recipes such as Black Jack Vodka, whose ingredients simply comprise 10 bars of Black Jacks and a bottle of vodka. (If that’s too much for you, you can now buy ready-made Black Jack Vodka.) Watch out for a large photo of Black Jack cupcakes, with some Fruit Salad cupcakes in the background.
Indeed the clash between Fruit Salad V Black Jack pops up on the Homepage with an invitation to vote for which you prefer. Now, who out there wants to create a website just about Fruit Salad?
