Not the sort caused by too much red wine, but the British candy. I'm back in the UK for a few days and one of my first purchases was a pack of this gummy treat.
Not well known, if at all in the US, wine gums are pretty popular over here. In fact they were a favorite bed-time treat of Roald Dahl, who kept a jar by his bed at all times for any shift late night snacking.
Sadly, for us adults, they no longer contain any wine, but do offer "subtle, lingering fruit flavors."
The UK is known for its candy, and is laughed at for its wine attempts. However, while here I'll do some 'research' in an attempt to dispell the myth.
However you celebrate it, Happy Holidays, and I'll see you a few pounds heavier afterwards.

are you bringing some back to the office for us? We can put it next to the big can of "filled candies" that you like!
