Saucy Sweets Cause a Stir in Scarborough

Saucy Sweets


Scarborough is one of several resorts under fire over the sale of inappropriate novelty sweets being sold in local sweet shops.

According to an article in the Express, the offensive , imported candy is shaped to look like breasts and men's genitalia and sits on shelves alongside regular confectionery.

Trading standards officers in Blackpool have started cracking down on the displays while visitors to Scarborough have called for the rude rock to be banished to the top shelf.

Grandmother Sue Radford said:
"I'm not a prude. I understand about smut but why have it in a sweet shop where kids go? Children should not be able to see this kind of thing. It gives Scarborough a bad image and puts visitors off."

Chamber of Trade chairwoman Janet Jefferson said:
"I accept there is a demand for joke items but if things like this are causing offence maybe shopkeepers should think about displaying them somewhere more discreet."

The excuse for stocking the lewd products is that they are in demand from hen and stag parties visiting the town.

Mrs Radford has complained to Scarborough Council and the police but both say they are powerless to act.
