8 Days Of UK Treats - Day 7

During one of my podcasts, we got into a discussion as to whether or not rhubarb was a fruit or a vegetable. According to Canadian law, we discovered that it is in fact designated as a fruit.  I'm assuming that it's because of the applications this fruit/vegetable is used for, mostly desserts.  I also imagine that scientists might argue against rhubarb being a fruit since you're pretty much just eating the stalks of leaves.  I can see both arguments in this issue, I can also tell you that rhubarb is a much too often overlooked flavour for candy.  There are thousands of candy companies that produce fruit flavoured treats, but very few that include rhubarb in these categories.
