Aniseed twist

An aniseed twist is a red or occasionally orange, aniseed-flavoured boiled sweet common in the United Kingdom.[1] A clove-flavored variant is Cough Candy, which is sometimes written as Koff Candy instead. Confectioners who make aniseed twists include Bonds of London and Trebor. The relative piquancy of the sweet's aniseed flavour varies considerably among confectioners.

Visually they are sometimes confused with throat lozenges, but aniseed twists lack menthol and eucalyptus oil.
