      This is sheer magic, tastes just like the sherbert straws of my childhood. With the ingredients all in the same measure, it's a very simple thing to make different quantities to suit. I'll be taking this to this weekends gettogether for dipping fruit into.

      My momused to make this - glad to see it revived. I'll try to remember to give it a try. Only thing - be prepared for raised eyebrows if you buy citric acid from the pharmacist. Apparently it is used to cut heroin(?)
