Aaaaah a bit of retro...... These little fellas were my favourites...pink shrimps. I'd buy bag of them with a few white mice, Blackjacks and Fruit Salads. All still available I think. Our kids like the Haribo loopy sweets. I find half-eaten ones everywhere.

(We found half a pizza and a load of sliced tomatoes stuffed behind the couch the other day!! That's not as bad as some of our friends who found a dehydrated turd behind theirs. They're awaiting carbon testing and DNA results to nail the culprit.) :roll: :roll: :roll:

I love those! :D My gran put me off the white mice, though, cos she used to work at the factory where they made them and she told some pretty nasty stories... :pale:

Anyway, I like these:

I still miss the blackcurrant eclairs....... much nicer than the normal chocolate/toffee combination..........



Me too! However, all these chewy sweets are responsible for a mouthful of fillings and a filling actually came out once whilst chewing an opal fruit. My children are late teens/early twenties and don't have a filling between them - probably because I only allowed them chocolate, and not boiled sweets or toffee. :D

Ooh! Just remembered a barley sugar stick, and a sort of hard caramel stick that had chocolate running through the middle like a pencil; both of which you sucked to a sharp point. This would have been in the sixties.

I remember those too! :D So we must have had them in the seventies as well...........

And we had blocks of soft toffee/caramel with a cow on the wrapper - scottish I think they were.............

Eoin doesn't know what sweety tobacco is...Jan doesn't know what tabs are, back to nicotine for beginners for both of you!

Come on.. be a man and own up to it!!!

To be honest, yes I'm hoping there's not a DNA match for me from one of my tipsy moments. Surely not??? :oops: :oops: :oops:

At least you knew they were SUPPOSED to be cigarettes - I remember when there was an outcry and they had to stop putting the red tip on and rename them candy sticks or something.......... :roll:

Anyone remember a brand of lemonade, cola, orange, etc called Smack?
Always enjoyed asking the shop person for some Smack.
Ho. Ho. What a laugh I was.
Maybe it was just in Ireland?
A tall, thin can...?

Sweet tobacco - coconut coated with chocolate - totally addictive.

Sweet cigarettes - yeuk, but the cards that came with them could be fun.

Aniseed balls were my favourites, and cough candy, black jacks, anything flavoured with clove or cinnamon.
