Jolly Rancher

Jolly Rancher was originally an ice cream store in Colorado in 1949.  Upon discovering that no-one wanted to buy ice-cream in Colorado in the winter, they decided to sell sweets as well (makes sense) and the rest, as they say, is history.  Known worldwide for their extremely fruity flavours (the Green Apple is considered by connoisseurs to be the finest green apple flavour sweet made today), apparently using Jolly Ranchers to create flavoured vodka shots is a thing people do.  Not us, we're far too sensible.
