Sweets for my sweet, sugar for my honey . . .

Posted by Guy Pringle, 11th November 2010

Around the time The Searchers were trilling these inane lyrics (that I store in my grey cells for some unknown reason), you could still buy a chocolate bar called Fry's Five Boys. As I recall, each of the five segments was imprinted with a different smiling boy's face - or perhaps it was only on the wrapper?

Anyway, it struck me that, on a night when The Galaxy Book Awards denied Lord Sugar the honour of biography of the year for Stephen Fry’s second volume of memoirs – The Fry Chronicles – the aforesaid chocolate bar might have made a better title to continue the saccharine theme?
