Cis forCaramel

Caramel is a word for a mid-brown colour as well as a food. Caramel is made by heating sugar until it melts and changes colour. Caramel has a disctinctive flavour and is used in a lot of desserts like puddings and cakes, and is also used in lots of sweets and candies.
Chocolate is made from the fermented, roasted seeds of the tropical cacao tree. The seeds are used to make cocoa solids and cocoa butter. Chocolate is used to make a huge variety of sweets, desserts, cakes and drinks. Modern chocolate usually comes in dark, milk and white chocolate. All three of them have sugar added. Milk chocolate has milk added to it, and white chocolate doesn't have cocoa solids in it, only cocoa butter.
Cotton candy, also called candy floss or fairy floss, is spun sugar. It is usually dyed pink but is naturally white. Cotton candy is made by spinning hot, melted sugar into fine threads, and then gathering the threads onto a stick. It has the texture of soft wool or cotton when it is fresh, but gets rougher as it absorbs moisture from the air.

Iis forIcecream

Ice cream is a dessert made from frozen milk or cream. Icecream is usually flavoured with sugar, vanilla, fruit or chocolate. Icecream is made by freezing the milk or cream slowly and stirring it frequently so it stays smooth. If you don't stir it, it will be full of crunchy ice crystals and will not be as nice. Icecream is sometimes served in a cone.

Liquorice, or licorice, is the root of a plant native to southern Europe. In some countries, the root is chewed raw, and in other countries the liquorice flavour is used with sugar to make liquorice candies. Liquorice has a similar flavour to fennel and anise but is not related to either one of them. Some modern liquorice candies have more anise in them than liquorice.
