Laughs and shocks as camel balls found in Bradford shops

Camel Balls Sweet

The Camel Balls sweet found in a Bradford shop

It’s a name that may put you off your snacks, but Camel Balls have been surprising a lot of people in Bradford recently, being found in multiple shops and wholesalers in the district.

Local residents in the Manningham area have picked up the ‘liquid-filled’ and ‘extra sour’ bubble gum sweets, which have a picture of a camel’s backside on the packet, that has been labelled as inappropriate by many.

One teacher in Bradford – who requested not to be named – even had to confiscate the sweets from students in class.

She told the Yorkshire Standard: “I was both shocked and amused.

“But I joked that we could do a school version of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and they could try the ‘real thing’ from the jungle.”

In April last year, a mum in Birmingham complained after her seven-year-old daughter was sold a pack.

Other incidents have included customers requesting shops to put them away, or away from children’s sight.

The sweets are distributed by Fini Sweets U.K. Ltd, who claim the Camel Balls are meant to be funny.
