Purple sweets generally equals grape sweets, not always. We have blackcurrant & liquorice, those are a great sweet to have while you travel. You suck on the outside then you find there's a cheeky chewy bit of liquorice in the middle! Parma Violets are always a great gift for your nan. We don't know why but old people always seem to love this perfumey sweet. Purple sweets are also great if you're having a Royal party. Purple is the colour of royalty so you should serve nothing but the most regal sweets for your guests. Don your crown and dress, put on a posh accent and hand out Grapevines as a gift to all your subjects attending your party!
