Re: A Bad Reaction To Bassetts Liquorice Allsorts

Iím sorry, summer. I know how much you love liquorice allsorts and you know they are my favourites too.

I donít think it was the liquorice that l reacted to, it was the sulphites contained in the sweets. Most people are fine with sulphites but l even get a bad headache from some wines that have too many sulphites in them.

I also looked at the ingredients of this companyís other popular confectionary, Jelly Babies and Wine Gums. They also contain sulphites!

Bluey, Do you know if the Liquorice Allsorts you ate, had sulphites added to them?
If it was a while back, l suppose, regulations hadnít come into force where manufacturers are obliged to list the additives added to the product.
