  1. Just returned from my 61st trip (but who’s counting), to BDA. I love Barritt’s Ginger Beer. However, I found this website looking for a candy that I bought in Bermuda several years ago that I’ve never seen since. A hard blackcurrent-flavored shell covered a soft interior of… liquorice. My friends and I loved them. What were they? Where did they go?

  2. We love BARRITTS. Write soon. EB

  3. Where can I buy Barritt’s Ginger Beer in the city of Richmond, Virginia
