I once successfully convinced some american tourists that Pontefract Cakes (or Pomfret Cakes as they're now called) are not made of licorice but are a by-product of coal... ;-)

P'hobo - i just loves them Pontefract cakes! Have i told you i used to think Pontefract was in Wales, then i moved up here and saw it was just down the road from us.

Factotum - nope not that (had to look it up first)

Taniwha - good my plan is working

I looked caulk up in the OED, where the word is used for the waterproofing of boats. Here in Canada, the word is also used for the white plasticy putty that you used to seal up the cracks around windows etc in the winter, to (supposedly) keep the drafts out.
Is it a strand of scoobie?

what does white licorice taste like? Is it flavoured like black licorice?

I am a Pomfretian by birth, and moved from there to Hayfield in the darkest part of Derbyshire - it was easier to tell people I was from Leeds because everybody thought P'fract was in Wales.

It's really the head on a particularly skillfully poured pint of Guinness. Beats a shamrock!
