My mom is visiting Ireland next year and I'm having her pick me up some candy. I'm really interested in unusual flavored hard candies.

Any suggestions? So far I have rhubarb & custard and something black currant.

Cough Candy - basically aniseed twists!
I love anise but for mom to make room in her baggage, I need flavors I can't find here.

Are there any floral flavors that are good? I have rose down on my list, would love to find other florals or maybe a mix.

Seems some people think they taste like soap or perfume.
That's exactly what they taste like...soapy perfume!! And yet strangely irresistible once you get going. Haven't had them since I was a child...which was a long time ago:( Most sweet shops will have a great range of 'boilings' (hard sweets) for your mum to choose from, she will be spoiled for choice:hippo:

Soor Plooms is another one, although they are Scottish most retro sweet shops stock them. Sweet and sour tasting
