    Default Seaside Rock

    Blackpool & Brighton are two seaside towns which are famous for seaside rock with the name of the town threaded through the candy stick

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Bringing back sticks of rock as presents was what you did when you were growing up. There was often a small B/W photo on the stick showing a view of the town or a donkey. George Formby sang about his little stick of Blackpool rock--oo-er missus, while Brighton rock got its own film.

    Used to buy some from Great Yarmouth as a kid on holiday, I still buy it now in Southend to take back to Australia when I visit.

    We used to also buy Edinburgh Rock, which was a chalky version.

    I was in Brighton a few weeks ago. They still have Brighton rock in the stores at the pier.
    I use to love eating rock. Alas, my teeth would not be able to cope with such confectionery any longer.

    I recall taking Rock in from Holiday at Primary School - as did most kids and we would placeit on the Teachers desk going in and the Teacher would say" Joe/John has brrought in a Stick of Rock to share" and we'd all get a piece at Morning Play-time!!

    Sadly this is something else I bet now that the P.C/Red Tape do-gooders are trying to stop |(or may even have dune) as far I am aware either!

    I remember my primary school banned people bringing in food to share on their birthday, because of parents complaining, so it's nothing new!
