Cute story. It seems George was pretty good about writing back to his fans.

Did the fans think they would catch the candies in their mouths or something?  :P

I'll never understand why fans throw things at the objects of their affection...especially hard things.

They were lucky they weren't a punk band. Jelly Babies would have been very welcome!
