The penis shaped cherry-flavoured snacks were sold to sisters Bethany and Maisie Way by an independent store named ‘Lol’ in Portsmouth. Needless to say, Mum was left unimpressed.

‘Upsetting’

Mum Hilary, 38, said it was “upsetting” to see the girls come home with the naughty sweets.

The shop has a sweets sections for kids, but as the name suggests, there is an adult humour section also.

Hilary said: “I was completely taken aback.

“The girls had gone to town with their auntie and nan. They had popped to a shop called Lol.

“The buggy was too big to fit down the aisles of the small shop so the girls took their pocket money while my sister and mum waited for them at the front door.

“I’m horrified to think that my two young girls were walking about eating these, and that a shop could be so irresponsible as to sell them.

“My girls thought they were innocent sweets. Seeing them come home with them was really upsetting.

“I visited the shop the next day but was not given an apology.

“The woman working there was incredibly frosty towards me. I asked ‘how could you sell these to children? Don’t you see how inappropriate this is?'”

Ms Way, who lives in Fareham, Hants, added: “There is no sign to say the products are for an appropriate age group, they aren’t cordoned off.”

Discontinued

Well if you were looking to buy these sweets, it seems you have missed the boat on that one, with a representative saying they had removed the item.

A spokesperson said: “The product was a new line that we were trying, which was in our adult humour section.

“As soon as we were made aware of the incident, the product was removed from the shelf.

“As a result of this we have now decided not to continue to sell it, as we can see that the item can be confusing and if children were to see it, they may not realise what they actually are and may think they were normal sweets.

“We would like to apologise for the incident and any upset this may have caused.”
