17
Found 26th Oct 2014
Great price for a large sharing bag of sweets, these haven't been less than £1 in the last year. (mysupermarket)

Don't let the shiny new packaging fool you - these are the original Barratts Fruit Salad (pineapple and raspberry flavour chews) and Black Jacks (aniseed flavour chews).

Looking forward to trying them again.
If you have never tried them you are much younger than me.

In store and online until 31/10/14.

Love these

fab deal hen! HOT!

Mmm shared a packet of these the other day, takes me back to my youth

ah the memories......:D

I was disappointed. Don't taste the same and the texture is different too. Shame because I loved these. Always a staple in a 10p mix up.

I remember buying 8 for a 1p... Where have those days gone?

8? Goodness, they were penny chews when I was little, as in 1 for 1p.
Maybe the man in the top shop was robbing us.

They probably won't taste as good as I remember.
Then again neither would Spangles but I want to try them again anyway. I am so old.

It was 1970 and our little local shop sold them. I remember going in with 10p and coming out with a big bag of black jacks and fruit salads. Will definitely have to buy some of these.

My mum used to nick all the black jacks from my 10p mix, so I'm going to buy her a bag too.

Can I vote hot for the fruit salads but cold for the black jacks (yuck)?!

Love these, definitely a trip down memory lane but they don't taste as good & texture is a bit gooey. 1/2p when I was a wee lass. Always used to get a 10p mixed bag & was super happy...

8 for 1p what a bargain. Bring back those prices lol...
