In these days of universal mass marketing it's nice to see everyday products which are still known by a variety of local names.

Someone recently mentioned "sherbet" powder - you dipped a liquorice stick in it and then sucked it. When I was a kid in Oldham we always called it "kali" (pronounced "kale-eye"), and liquorice was also called "Spanish".

Any other local variations?
