still one of my favourite toffees. noticed the registration. Now what is the car make. Looks like it might be a Tesla. They are as common as muck over here in Canada.
Here on the Island I have a huge bottle of Uncle Joe's, slowly going down. I cannot reveal how I got it, but my friends love it.
Imagine, thousands of miles from Wigan !
The works looks like terrace houses converted.
The bosses car number plate registration is illegal if all the letters and numbers are all together. TOllFEE T011 FEE
I would never give away to who I was by having my name on my car number plate.
A good job, done well.
Shows that an old building can be maintained well.
Looks very clean and spruced up. Much better than the pie 'factory' the other day. Good example of recycling an old building. I take it the new building behind is an extension of Uncle Joe's Mint Balls.
Brilliant Idea Uncle Joe for the reg. number plate and it's good for recycling.
Or could be an Everton fan.
1D10T seems appropriate for Mick
Car looks like a Porsche Cayman. Almost as good as the mint balls.
The modern building to the right is Caxton House, owned by the same Housing Association as the restored Coops building just visible in the gap between the buildings. The factory does have another half - running the width of Caxton House behind the section visible here, facing Chequeurs Street, which runs between it and the Coops building.
Have to have my fix of Uncle Joes even in Norfolk. I get mine from one of those old fashioned sweet shops in Kings Lynn.
Brendell...thanks for the tip. I have never thought of going to our local old fashioned sweet shop for some Uncle Joe's... in our quaint little town beside the sea in Norfolk !
I bet you have a Parish Council as well Helen...
The car is a Tesla 3. It's registration number is T10 FFE. It looks nothing like a Porsche Gayman.
Not a Porsche, looked on a bigger screen, decidedly not.
Looks like a Model 3 to me, could be wrong
The reg looks like T10 FEE,a Tesla.
Our sweet shop in Cardigan are out of Uncle Joe's. I was told that they couldn't get them. Shall have to ask them why when I go in next.
Lovely old building.
I have just checked on the Gov.UK website, and the car, T10 FEE is a Tesla,
an electric motor.
They definitely aren't as good as they used to be. That's Uncle Joe's Mint Balls,not Teslas.
Along with that, Uncle Joes Mint Balls are not 'toffees', they're 'hard boiled sweets'. Why does he have that registration when it's not relevant to their main product? They don't even make toffee.
"The Toffee Works" - indeed!
What do you think Toffee is - it's boiled sugar and can be boiled up to 309 degrees Fahrenheit, then you can add either citric or tartaric acid, Santus' use the latter along with peppermint oil or other flavourings depending on the toffees being produced.
Example of Candy: Toffee
Temperature (in Degrees Fahrenheit): 295 to 309
Percentage of Sugar Concentrate: 99%

George (Hindley) do I detect a very strong smell of jealousy in your post.?
Good luck to them I say, as they have always done and still do work hard!
Don’t like them myself. The Dentists friend.
Come on George.I lived in Hindley and we called all sweets toffees.
Never liked them,or any kind of boiled sweets.Prefer chocolate or caramels.
George is correct.
Hard boiled sweets are made fromwhuite sugar, glucose syrup, colour and flavourings.
Toffee is made from brown sugar and butter.
Hard boiled sweets are brittle and hard.
Toffee is chewy, relatively soft and can evenbe runny.
Different products, made differently and given different names (to help people know they are not the same?)
If you ever had toffee coupons you would like any sweets!
The joint Managing Directors are John and Antony Winnard, Williams Santus great nephews. They are two of the nicest people you could wish to meet; they have worked tirelessly to make the firm what it is today . Uncle Joe's can be bought all over the world thanks to their efforts . The firm moved into these premises in 1919.
Because I am not a local, even though I have lived in Pemberton for 55 years, I always thought toffee was a confection that was chewable, unlike
Uncle Joes Mintballs that were hard bolied sweet. Local people refer to
sweets in general as toffee.
Well, being seasonably topical - toffee apples have a brittle toffee coating...
We do have Parish Councils here in Norfolk in fact I have been a Parish Councilor in my village for 23 years.
I have been to a lovely little village in Norfolk many times Brendell over the years. You probably know it, as it is Walsingham and whilst staying there been on some lovely outings all around there. The skies over that part of the country seem bigger than anywhere else in England. Lovely countryside and seaside.
