A Shower of Little Pebbles

"`A barrowful of WHAT?' thought Alice; but she had not long to doubt, for the next moment a shower of little pebbles came rattling in at the window, and some of them hit her in the face. `I'll put a stop to this,' she said to herself, and shouted out, `You'd better not do that again!' which produced another dead silence.

Alice noticed with some surprise that the pebbles were all turning into little cakes as they lay on the floor, and a bright idea came into her head. `If I eat one of these cakes,' she thought, `it's sure to make SOME change in my size; and as it can't possibly make me larger, it must make me smaller, I suppose.'"

Well over a hundred years have passed since that happened, and in our hectic twenty-first century lives we do not have time to sit around waiting for pebbles to turn into cakes - we need to eat them now, now, NOW!

These Edible Stones are comprised of a crisp candy shell with a chocolate flavour centre - like Smarties or M&Ms we suppose.

 These River Stones and Sugar Pebbles (scroll down) are vanilla flavoured and available from  Apparently the pebbles are a hard candy whereas the stones are slightly chewy.
