  1. A fantal is a 1cm cube with a thin layer of darkish brown chocolate with melts in your mouth as you eat it. The edges are slightly rounded and the bottom of the fantal has a thinner layer of chocolate. The rest in the middle is filled with a light brown caramel which streches and thins out as you chew it through out your mouth. The little cube of choclate makes your day as you tatse its sweetness on your tougne.

  2. This is a dark brown cube of deliciousness. There is a chocolate layer over the caramel inside. The chocolate coat is smooth, not a dent in it. The bottom is the only not perfect part of the cant where as it is thin and uneven, but just as delicious. The smell is purely on chocolate, strong and rich. The taste makes you feel uplifted and delighted. Once you suck off the chocolate you are left with the chewy caramel. The caramel is hard and sticky so I just suck on it. I see this is a good idea because the sweet and delicious taste lasts longer. Then it vanishes, and all I want is another Fantale.

  3. A Sherbie is a small, brightly coloured lolly that takes the shape of a rectangular prism. This lolly is hard, smooth and is brightly coloured by a pale but energetic orange. This colour has been chosen because the colour orange is believed to arouse excitement and hunger. Surrounded by a thick layer of this smooth orange delight is a small hit of white sherbet. When chewing or sucking a Sherbie the sherbet suddenly explodes in your mouth leaving a zingy taste. After the sherbet hit the lolly starts to melt and form an elastic layer across your tongue. Eventually this elastic layer of orange sweetness becomes so small that it is swallowed.

  4. A faitail is a small 1cm by 1cm cube of chewy delicious caramel coated will smooth succulent milk chocolate. The touch of this small cube is hard and smooth. The chocolate around the caramel has not holes or dips in it. The caramel is sticky and hard to chew on but gives you at least 10 minutes of entertainment for sucking. The bottom of the fantail has a pattern on it, most properly from the machinery it was on, There is a little bit more chocolate at the bottom of the cube.

  5. Analysis of a Sherbie
    A Sherbie is a type of lolly, or as Leah Uselmann would say ‘Candy’, that is made by Pascal (A lolly company). A Sherbie is a orange rectangular prism of fairly hard, sugary sweetness that, when chewed becomes chewy and releases its full potential. It has four smooth slightly wavy sides with the odd air bubble her and there. On one side the lolly spirals in on its self to reveal sherbet. This makes the customer want to dig deeper and fully explore the sweet. On the opposite side the creators have tried to replicate the spirally side but sadly have failed with a five by ten millimetre hole being present. As we explore more of the inside we realise that there is a wonderful cavern full of sherbet waiting to be explored. The taste is marvellous combining the zinginess and the orangey taste of an orange with the sweet sugary sensation of every creation that Pascal has ever created. All in all a Sherbie is one of Pascal’s greatest inventions yet.

    • So, I’m an everyday pedestrian walking with my coffee and you walk up to me and ask me if you can describe a ‘Sherbie’ for you. First, I have no idea who ‘Leah Uselmann’ is and I’m not positive it will assist you in describing a sherbie, although it is true that she does say ‘candy’. You used commendable adjectives, although I think you need to be more precise in what shape and scale the Sherbie takes. Moreover, be careful in describing which side demonstrates which characteristics – the ‘spiral’ part was a little confusing. Good work though 🙂

  6. The Fantale is a solid brown cube. It is 10mm by 10mm and it has a hard sweet outer shell. There is a hard chewy inner area, this is a lighter brown colour. The inner shell is very sweet and chewy where as the outer shell is hard and sugary. When you bite into it it gets stuck to your teeth because it is hard until it warms in your mouth. The bottom layer of chocolate is thinner then the rest of the sides.

  7. The dark chocolate coat forms an almost perfect cube around a slightly lighter brown, gooey, caramel inside. The firm coat is difficult to bite through as it has been hardened over time. Once through the tough however smooth layer, the taste lingers in your mouth more than expected as the consumer tries to separate the sticky caramel from the inside of their mouth.

  8. A sherbie is a brightly coloured delicious sensation. But the outside is a hit of zingy sensation that explodes in your mouth. Then you get another hit of flavor that is the white sherbet in the middle of the sherbie. This lollie is a smooth beautiful textured little piece of heaven. It smells like licorice and tea leaves.
