A pensioner has been left disgusted after coming across "pornographic sweets" for sale at a seaside candy shop during a half-term trip with her grandkids.
Susan Radford says she was stunned to find "foot-long" penis-shaped sweets which said 'don't forget your rock' inside the store by Promenade Amusement Park in Bridlington, East Riding of Yorkshire.
The nan from East Yorkshire claims the candy was "within children's reach" and advertised under several erotic names including 'Rock C***' and 'Big Boy'.
She said she will not stop until action is taken against the unnamed store, reports Hull Live.
Susan told the paper: "Why should children be getting exposed to that?"
"They are getting too sensitised.
"Don't put them on the seafront in a big twirly-coloured rock shop."
The grandma, who was a nurse for 36 years before working at York Racecourse, said she didn't approach the shop at the time and hasn't found contact details since.
"I was going to tell them off but the girls behind the counter were only about 15 or 16 years old," she said.
Susan has, however, contacted a number of different outlets in the last few days to see if the "pornographic sweets" can be removed.
These include Trading Standards, the council, a local MP and even the police.
"The police got quite shirty and said it isn't against the law, so there's nothing they can do about it," she said.
"My point is that it would not be ok if kids were taken to a pornographic shop where that sort of thing may be expected, so why is it ok to have that in a sweet shop on the seafront?"
"When I was young, they'd have been interested, but now it seems anything goes."

She has also contacted a local Anglican church and a rival rock sweet store in Bridlington to share her outrage.
"I don't want to go there," she said.
"Don't buy sweets in this Bridlington shop because of what you will be confronted with.
"I'm not giving up."
