Screwdrivers with boiled sweet handles alert

November 30th, 2014 by Ray Hesketh

I just finished stemming the blood flow from an accident with a broken handle of a screwdriver I was using on one of my bathroom projects. The screwdriver came in a set of 10 different sizes. Their handles had an array of jolly colours. I chose the clear yellow one for the task. Seems the plastic used has the same consistency as boiled sweets.
Whilst nursing my newest work related injury, I casually licked one of the jagged pieces from the broken tool to check if it tasted like boiled sweets. It didn’t quite have the lemon flavour I expected.
Having rendered the lemon screwdriver useless, I dont think I’ll be trying my hand at using the strawberry, lime or cola flavoured ones for a while!!
