Alas, Earwax!

This sweet shop in the Market Cross in Kilkenny sells Bertie Bott's Every Flavoured Beans! Me and my cousins, upon getting a taste of most of the flavours, have reached the following conclusions: that the flavors Candyfloss, Cherry, Cinnamon and Tutti Frutti are the best ones of what we have tasted, and that, as expected, the flavours Soap, Grass ( which was the first one I have tasted), Earwax, Rotten Egg, and Booger (or was it Banana?)  were the worst ones. We tried the sweets outside the shop and I noticed this man staring at us, wondering what was going on (we were pulling our faces and making incoherent noises). I kindly walked over to him and offered him some beans, and he said he'd love to! I ended up giving him three beans of the following flavours: Soap, Booger (or was it Banana? We can never tell.), and Sausage. He said the Sausage was okay, but that it was also very strange. The other two flavours we've established as not good. All in all though it was a very wonderful and surreal experience!
