On the Twenty Fourth Day of Christmas.....

My Tube Love gave to me

Some London Underground Travel Sweets

Today's the day that a lot of people will be driving home for Christmas or taking long train journeys home, so what better way to keep your concentration or refresh a yucky mouth, than to suck on some London Underground travel sweets.

London Underground Travel Sweets

These were available in Whittards for £3 a tin.

I'd never really seen the point of Tube travel sweets until now. With the proposed New Year's Eve London Underground strike more people will be taking to their cars and National Rail so they may need them there. But I was particularly interested to see that the flavours of these sweets seemed to be aimed at RMT union leader Bob Crowe - bitter lemon and sour grapes!
