    Cherry drops, can't beat them.

    Desperate dan bars, marble bars

    I filled the bag with fried eggs and flying saucers to hide them hehe.

    Highland toffee bar mmmmm. Not sweets but who remembers tangy toms ball shaped maize crisps, 5p a bag?!

    I remember jelly welly boots ( jelly shaped Wellington boots covered in icing sugar I believe!) which were delicious and I've never seen them on any of the retro sweet shop stores...

    Spangles (NOT the Old English flavour though!), Pacers, Toffo Assorted Flavour Toffees and quarters of toffee bon bons.

    wham bars

    Double Agent sweets too. IIRC there was a cherry or strawberry flavour that I particularly liked.

    Remember getting them out of the vending machine at the swimming pool when I was young

    lyons butterscotch gums. Not the boiled sweets but the hard gums. Stopped making them now but there is a petition to try and get them back on the shelves.

    It was tasty and a clever play on words.

    This was the best I never had. I was 9 or 10 and the old biddy wouldn't sell me it because it had rum in it.
