Reporter Tony Maycock is unwisely allowed behind the counter of the Sheeren Kada sweet centre at Moseley in Birmingham. It's not a pretty sight as he helps himself to the wide variety of sweet treats on offer. Maycock walks all over the cultural meanings behind some of the sweets like a school boy let loose in, well, a sweet shop. With hands and face stuffed he appears to be in favour although you'll be wishing he didn't keep saying he was going to be sick.
