Jesmona Old Fashioned Black Bullets 500g - Mint Flavoured Sweets
Jesmona Black Bullets are a very traditional mint flavoured sweet, whose origins are lost in the mists of time. Black Bullets themselves are a fairly typical sweet from the North East of England where the word "Bullet" is a dialectic term for any boiled sweet. One myth surrounding Black Bullets is that they derive their distinctive shape and size from having been made in the moulds for musket balls.
One theory behind the growth and popularity of Jesmona Black Bullets in the North East is down to their clean mint flavour, which was welcomed by the miners and industrial workers, who were not allowed to smoke at work.
The popularity of Jesmona Black Bullets has continued to increase and they are enjoyed by "Geordies" everywhere, and by those who have been tempted by the stylish black and white tins while on holiday in the North East.
