It melts in your mouth

Our Number One candy is the Zeeuwse boterbabbelaar – it’s our version of butterscotch. The name means ‘the buttery chatterbox of Zeeland’ which was because visitors took a long time to let it melt in their mouth, when offered them with a (second) cup of tea of coffee. The longer they stayed, the more they would ‘babbelen’ – chatter.
