The aniseed twist is often mistaken for cough candy. An aniseed twist is a red or occasionally orange, aniseed-flavoured boiled sweet common in the United Kingdom. Cough Candy (also rendered Koff Candy) is a clove-flavoured boiled sweet. Confectioners who make aniseed twists include Bonds of London and Trebor. The relative piquancy of the sweet's aniseed flavour varies considerably among confectioners.
