Jesmona Black Bullets are a very traditional mint flavoured sweet, whose origins are lost in the mists of time. Black Bullets themselves are a fairly typical sweet from the North East of England where the word "Bullet" is a dialectic term for any boiled sweet. One myth surrounding Black Bullets is that they derive their distinctive shape and size from having been made in the moulds for musket balls. While we cannot say for sure whether this is the case, we can say that they do not form part of the modern production technique!
Indeed one theory behind the growth and popularity of Jesmona Black Bullets in the North East is down to their clean mint flavour, which was welcomed by the miners and industrial workers, who were not allowed to smoke at work.
The Jesmona brand, itself is somewhat antiquated, but is believed to take its name from the Jesmond area of Newcastle in the heartland of Black Bullet eating. Whatever the origin, Jesmona has become the name for Black Bullets.
In many respects, Jesmona Black Bullets is a product before its time. Long before the current craze for natural products, Jesmona Black Bullets were made purely from sugar, glucose and peppermint oil... no artificial colourings or flavourings at all.
The popularity of Jesmona Black Bullets has continued to increase and they are enjoyed by "Geordie's" everywhere, and by those who have been tempted by the stylish black and white tins while on holiday in the North East. Today, Jesmona Black Bullets are available to enjoy throughout the USA, Australia, and the UK.
