A Flumps (often mistakenly referred to as a Flump) is a British sweet made of marshmallow. The sweet is a combination of pink, yellow, white and blue marshmallow, which has the appearance of a twisted helix. Flumps sweets are sold in the United Kingdom and are made by the confectioner Barratt. They consist of glucose-fructose syrup, sugar, gelatin, cornflour, natural flavouring, and natural colours (Riboflavin, Cochineal). These are reputed as one of the best British confectionery due to winning the British Flump Award.[1] Flumps are sold as individual "cables".
