National Express has just launched a range of travel sweets inspired by British regions – and you can try them for free.
The treats, which were created in celebration of Brits planning UK breaks again, have unusual flavours like fish and chips and curry.
Chris Hardy, managing director of National Express UK Coach, said: “We suspended all services for 11 weeks at the beginning of the year so we’re delighted to now be back on the road with full measures in place to ensure passenger comfort and safety.
“As the UK’s largest coach operator, we’ve always been part of seeing friends and family, going to events, on day trips and holidays. We wanted to mark helping make this happen again in a fun way.
“Fish and chips and pork pies might not be the kind of flavours anyone would expect to taste in boiled sweet form, but each confectionary celebrates the wonderful diversity of the UK.
“We hope the tastes will take people to a place they’ve missed and can now happily and safely return to with National Express.”
The six sweet flavours have arguably never been tasted before in boiled sweet form:
● Fish and chips – enjoyed with fresh sea air at ever popular choices for a day trip to the seaside or coastal holiday such as Devon, Brighton, Margate, Scarborough and Blackpool
● Curry – in honour of Birmingham, the home of the Balti triangle and National Express
● Cornish pasty – a must-taste treat for anyone visiting the ever-popular coastal county of Cornwall
● Pork pie – the classic British snack from Leicestershire, home of the Melton Mowbray pork pie
● Wensleydale cheese and cranberry – a nod to Yorkshire and popular destinations such as Leeds, Sheffield and Bradford.
● Eccles cake – the only ‘sweet’ sweet in the tin, representing Greater Manchester.
