A Quarter of Sherbet

A Quarter of Sherbet


A birthday present for my mum.


Rows and rows of jars on shelf after shelf, floor to ceiling. My eyes greedily take in the treats laid out before me. My mind skips over options: Sarsaparilla, Cola Cubes, Blackpool Rock and Pontefract Cakes. But, wait! Pastel shades fading into one another focus my gaze. Of course, there is no other choice! “A quarter of sherbet, please.”
