Does anyone remember Troach? I remember my dad taking me to a sweet shop in Springfield Road in Sparkbrook to buy troach. It was in a flat tray and broken up with a toffee hammer. Can't find anyone in Mid Wales who knows what I'm talking about or where I can get some!
Probably similar but this was in a tray,could it have been a home made version perhaps? It was a small sweet shop run by a lady, just up the road I think from what was the Oxford (later the Springfield) laundry
Well Mike, if you insist on using the so called "Urban Dictionary" you can be assured of bad images. Any idiot can make up words for inclusion on that website.
I think the tray and the drops are probably the same thing. Haven't had any for years but I can still remember the taste. Still available … Troach Drops at Amazon Someone left this review… Troach Drops ,apparently, originate from the Birmingham area and are not readily available outside the Midlands ( We reside in Wales ) What a lovely treat.....try them ..you won't be disappointed.
There is an old fashioned sweet shop in The Great Western Arcade in Brum. And another at The Back To Backs by the Hippodrome both are rather expensive. I bought some a few years ago for some friends. only about four bags, they cost more than I got for my first weeks wages
