Sherbet Kali & Sugar Crystals
Perhaps the most common way to eat sherbet is to use the dip 'n' lick method. Some good dippers are lollipops, liquorice or your finger. So, grab your desired dipper and dip it in your sherbet and lick and enjoy! Of course, this is the home-made way. You can also get the traditional Sherbet Fountain and Dip Dabs that are ready made for you to enjoy as soon as you step out the sweet shop. Yum! Sherbet comes in powder or crystal form. The crystals are normally a bit sour so if you're a fizzy-fanatic then the crystals are probably the one for you! Sherbet's also fun when it sneaks up and surprises you. There you are sucking on a yummy lemon boiled sweet and, 'bam!', some sour lemon sherbet hits you. Sherbet Strawberries are pretty good too!
Aka Space Ships, Sherbet Discs, etc, etc.
Little disks of edible paper filled with a tangy sherbet. They were first made in the 1960's and are still popular today.
And, oh, how they melt in your mouth!

This is the granulated version, so not as fine as icing sugar, or like the sherbet in a Sherbet Fountain or Dip Dabs, but more like crystals. It doesn't really have a flavour, sorry to disappoint, it's just blue and sweet!
Sherbet can be eaten so many ways. Some people just like to eat it straight out the bag. Others prefer to dip a liquorice stick or a lollipop in it. And some people like to use their fingers to eat all of the bubblegum sherbet goodness. Another idea is to use it to decorate cakes. You could use bubblegum as a yummy ocean on a pirate cake!
