Orange-flavoured, candy-coated chocolate balls.
Famous for munching at the movies,
rolling noisily down the aisles,
or doinking people on the back of the head from an anonymous distance at the denouement,
jaffas are the Anarchists of Lollies.
The Kiwis, no doubt, lay claim to the invention of jaffas, like everything else good in the Universe,
but once again, they are totally dreaming....
although I only say this because I am Austrayan.
If I were to be A Truly Honest Lolly Woman, I would be obliged to admit that the very best lollies come out of New Zealand.
After all, the jaffa-rolling event, where they roll thousands of jaffas down a very steep hill once a year just for the Hell of it,
occurs in Dunedin, New Zealand, and not in Melbourne, Australia.
The longer I work in a lolly shop, the more seriously I consider moving to New Zealand.I
