Liquorice AllSOXKS #1
Bertie Bassett is the kind of colourful character we think we’d get along with, and in the Pantheon of food mascots he stands head and shoulders above the rest. Tony the Tiger is a bit too bold and brash. The Caramel bunny looks as though her morals might be rather loose. And the Jolly Green Giant is always disappointingly sedate.Bertie, meanwhile, is a man of the people,a quirky geezer, a veritable Jack the lad who gets along with all sorts. Pun intended. These LiquoriceAllSOXKS are our sartorial tribute to one of England’s best-known sugary sons and confectionery exports.
