This assortment of sweets is wildly popular in South Africa. In 1899, Carlie Thompson, a Beacon sales representative, supposedly dropped a tray of various samples he was showing to a client in Leicester, mixing up the different sweets. He scrambled to re-arrange them, but the client was intrigued by the blend. A less clever employee of Beacon came up with the slogan “All sorts love Allsorts” in the 1970s. Each bag has different flavors of licorice, different sizes, different shapes, different colors—it's like a bag of Legos you can eat.
