IT may not be the dentists favourite treat, but there's no denying the popularity of the raspberry drop in Ballarat.
This month, Sovereign Hill is celebrating all things to do with the raspberry drop, culminating in "the most delicious day of the year" on February 22 with a celebration of all things raspberry drop at the tourist village and in Bridge Mall.
For those wishing to get their own version of the raspberry drop, the tourist attraction is going away a free bag to the first 100 people to visit Brown's Confectionery Factory on February 22.
The day will also include all your favourite raspberry products, including raspberry drop hot cross buns, raspberry drop wagon wheels and personalised raspberry drops.
But for those of you who can't get to Sovereign Hill on the day, there is another option with Bridge Mall also hosting an event on the day.
The highlight will be the appearance of the 'VERY' large blow-up raspberry drop jar while costumed characters will be handling out the sweet for free from 11am-2pm.
