Our gobstoppers take several weeks to make (and most likely a lifetime to eat!). The gobstopper is made with layer upon layer of sugar & colours in large, rotating, heated pans.
The Oldest Sweet Shop sells two sizes - Giant Gobstopper (golf ball sized) and Mega Giant Gobstopper (cricket ball sized)! Local children to the sweet shop in Pateley Bridge are known to have taken years to eat one!
AKA known as Jawbreakers in America.
