Coltsfoot Rock

Coltsfoot Rock

Coltsfoot Rock is a confectionery product created from Coltsfoot extract by the UK confectioners Stockley's Sweets, based in Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire, England. As a product, it is a hardened stick of brittle rock candy flavoured with Coltsfoot, a plant with hoof-shaped leaves.

As a recognised product of importance with regional heritage, along the lines of Dundee Cake, Kendal Mint Cake and other regional creations, it has gained such acknowledgment from the UK Regional Tourism Board, Lancashire Tourism Council and culinary organisations such as Gourmet Britain.[citation needed]

The recipe is secret to Stockley's Sweets and as the only manufacturer of Coltsfoot Rock all products that are labelled as such have originated from Stockley's traditional factory.

The history and popularity of the confectionery comes from its medicinal benefits; originally the leaves of the Coltsfoot plant were dried then smoked and is reported to have relieved asthma while its juices soothed coughs.[1]
