10 things that have no right to be as delicious as they are

*dreams of Bonjela*

WE ALWAYS WANT what we cannot have.

1. Purple Calpol

Sweet purple drank! Every Irish child knows the heartache of having to move on to Six Plus, with its inferior taste and colour. A real coming-of-age moment.

2. Bonjela

โ€œOh no, my mouth is sore. This is terrible. Best put some Bonjela on it.โ€ *squeezes half a tube of Bonjela into gob*

As an adult, your enjoyment of Bonjela directly corresponds to the experiences youโ€™ve had drinking Sambuca.

3. Liga biscuits

Weโ€™re not parents, but we understand that the best thing about having a kid is unfettered access to Liga. Itโ€™s just all Liga, all day.

4. Gripe water

Do you still dream of it? We do.

5. Sugar on bread

People who didnโ€™t grow up eating sugar sandwiches will tell you itโ€™s wrong. Thereโ€™s no need to associate with those types of people.

6. Hot chocolate mix

Nicer, sometimes, than the actual hot chocolate. *sneakily dips finger in tub*

7. Raw jelly

Like Haribo in its purest form. Heavenly.

8. Edible paper

What even is it? And why do we crave it, even now?

9. Toothpaste

If weโ€™re not supposed to eat it, why do they make it taste so nice? WHY DO THEY MAKE IT TASTE SO NICE.

10. And cake batter

Same thing. They warn us about eating raw eggs, then make cake batter and cookie dough the most desirable treats ever. Itโ€™s just rude.

Can we lick the spoon, please?
