Roundish in shape and about the size and texture of a large dried apricot. They have a sour taste and are made of a flesh coloured chewy gelatin.

       when i first read the title i was bracing myself for something a little more gross that this but this just sends shivers down my spine. reminds me of fleshball. ugghh!

       Yank readers may miss the fact that "knob" is anatomical slang in many parts of the Anglophone world. (Aren't you glad rmutt cleared that up?)

       ...including the US.

       Personally, I would no more eat something named "Old Man's Knob" than I would drink a Scotch named "Sheep Dip" (and there actually IS a Scotch named "Sheep Dip," BTW).   

       Sounds like the name of a mountain in Vermont. . . .

       I shall restate what StarChaser said, "knob" means the same in the U.S. as it does in the U.K.

       I'm from Vermont, and i believe deacon is confusing this with New Hampshire's "Old man in the mountain". check out the new quarters and you'll see the old man's face.... and then go spend your shiny quarter on a yummy knob to chew on.

       Old Man's Knob mint flavour? But you said the taste would be sour. Go for authenticity and make 'em cream cheese and onion...

       And what lucky person gets to work as the taster at the Old Man's Knob factory?   

       Could we not pretend that this is so that people with arthritis can open doors more easily?

       I could not resist bringing this back. Benfrost was way before his time...There are now soft pinkcoloured chewy vagina shaped sweets for sale in store.

       Haven't seen them yet. What clever name are they marketed under?
normzone, Jan 11 2005

       I have never bought them, so I wouldn't know. Probably something funny like 'vaggies'.

       A treat for grandma!
