This year, as every year, there was mystery surrounding the recent arrival of Toffifee to supermarket shelves in the run-up towards Christmas.

The peculiar half-moons of caramelly weirdness first started appearing towards the end of November.

“Damned if I know where the bloody things come from,” said Simon Williams, a manager of a Tesco metro in Bolton.

“We just got in one morning, and there they were on the shelf. I didn’t order them. Why would I order them? They’re weird.

“Happens every year around late-November, just out of nowhere all these bloody Toffifee appears on the shelf. Always in the same spot. We have to spend the next month or so dusting them, because they’re a bloody magnet for dust, they really are.”

“Then, in January, we chuck them all in the bin.”

Mr Williams had a theory surrounding the arrival of the sweets to his shelves.

“I reckon that there must be some sort of time-vortex back to the seventies when people thought that Toffifee were a good thing. That time-vortex is right here on this shelf, and every year someone from the past accidentally stacks a load of Toffifee in the time-vortex and it mysteriously appears here.

“It’s the only bloody explanation I’ve got as to why any shop would stock Toffifee in 2019.”
