– A torok kéményseprője (The throat’s chimney sweep)

°

The Hungarian candy was invented by the Italian confectioner Pietro Negro living and working in Hungary in the 1920s. (so no racist things involved, we love everyone)
It’s slogan is “The throat’s chimney sweep.”. On the candy’s wrapper there is a chimney sweep depicted while sweeping a chimney.
