They are a North American sweet/lolly/candy (pick your dialect). Basically 
they are little paper tubes filled with flavoured sugar. I think they are a 
little like Wizz Fizz or powdered sherbet but my husband says I am deluded 
and they are nothing like it. The flavours include the grape and cherry 
which are stigmatised by my family as the kind of thing you can only like 
if you ate it as a child.
