Have your say

Lots of you are talking about the children’s bubblegum sweets Camel Balls, after one Wearside parent branded them “explicit”.

So we’ve taken a look at some other products on the market to see if they really have the worst name out there.

Here are some of the ones we’ve found - how many of these can you remember?

Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls: A family favourite with a variety of sweets in their range. But you can’t beat this classic. They’re still available to buy today so what are you waiting for?

Snot Shots: The sour-flavoured bubbly may not be seen in shops that often now, but they’re doing a roaring trade online. Do you remember them?

Hanky Panky popcorn: A toffee relic of the 70s. Coated in caramel and packed full of nuts, this really was the only thing to snack on while watching the telly.

Charms Blow Pops: As a child, a cheeky lolly on a trip to the shops was the perfect treat. Did you ever get bought one of these?

Weasel Puke Coffee: Artisan coffee is certainly the “in” thing at the moment. But is this taking it too far? A strange way to get a different flavour.

Civet Poop Coffee: Same as above. Would you try it?

Cock flavoured soup mix: In supermarkets near you, a different kind of chicken soup.

Heinz Spotted Dick: A classic British pudding, perhaps, but one that always baffles our neighbours from other countries. Tastes better than it sounds!

Mr Brain’s pork faggots: You’ve definitely seen these in the supermarket at least once. Admit it. Have you ever bought them?

Sourballs: Another confectionery favourite and in a variety of fruit flavours too. Get down to your local sweetie shop and get a quarter in a paper bag. Apple, cherry or blueberry?
