Aniseed twist

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.

Although aniseed twists resemble throat lozenges, throat lozenges taste of spice, menthol, and eucalyptus oil.
