How's that for an iconic Scottish image? Found these braw beasties up Glen Esk last week. But for any Scottish laddie my age there's only one image that springs to mind when you see these beasts......McCowans Highland Toffee.
Magical stuff, though as boys we never managed to buy it by the box load. It would've been a penny chew back then. After chewing half way through it, it would have been carelessly re-wrapped and stuffed in your pooch (pocket), only to be extracted at a later time to be finished off. Only problem was that by this time it would be invariably covered in fluff, bits of string and the general debris to be found in a boys pocket. Just made it taste all the better though.
