The Disgusting English Candy Drill, Part II

Inspired by a passage from Gravity's Rainbow, I ordered a box of English candy: rhubarb and custard hard candy, pear drops, Army & Navy, licorice torpedos, fizz bombs, and ginger creams.

English candy was difficult to find online. So difficult, I had to order it from Australia.

So far, I've tried the rhubarb and custard, which in their blandness resemble a rhubarb crumble drowned in Bird's custard, the pear drops, which are a pleasant variation on a lemon drop, and the fizz bombs, which are weapons-grade sour. They could be dropped behind enemy lines to deplete strategic saliva reserves.
