    Does anyone remember Milk Tray chocolate bars and can you name any no longer produced chocolates?

    Hi, I was chatting with ( a much younger) friend the other day about chocolates that I had when I was a child.
    I told her that I used to buy a bar of Milk Tray chocolates and I don't think she believed me.They were milk tray chocolate joined together and you could snap them off.Does any one else remember them?
    I also remember Spangles and Bar Six.
    Does anyone else have a favourite that isn't made anymore?

    Marathon bars, my father still calls Snickers Marathon bars.

    yes I remember them OP! My mum used to send me out to the ice cream van to ask for a "cake of chocolate" and I was always given a bar of Milk Tray!

    yeah i remember milk tray bars.

    And frys mint cream, pacers, spangles, ranchero crisps, drifters.

    Colin, can you not still get the Frys mint cream now? You can definitely still get Drifter bars - I love them!

    Secrets.

    Refreshers seem to have vanised over the last couple of years

    Not seen them for a while. you used to get the mint ones and the different flavour ones, like the milk tray bars.

    didn't know drifters were still about. nice with a cuppa!

    A lot of sweets/choccys are much smaller these days too.

    I have a packet of them right next to me
    I was given a box of 'Retro sweets' and had all sorts of yummy sweeties and chocolates.

    Pizza Flavored Disco's

    Also sweets are sugar/chemical/preservative/e-number free these days and don't taste as good as they used to.

    I remember Cabana's - we used to get them for a treat from my mum on a Friday night when she had finished work.

    Spira and Vice Versas.

    I mourn everyday without them.

    reminds me of the time when i was 15 cycling cross country across freshly ploughed fields for 10+miles on valentines day with a box of milk tray getting a puncture and having to walk to the nearest town to get a puncture repair kit. Only getting to her house to find she was out. I gave the chocolates to her neighbour and went home. But stuck to the roads.

    Got to school and i didn't even get a thanks. One of her friends said she would have gone out with me if i had done that for her.

    End of secondary school she wrote me a long letter saying how she was in love with someone and realised what a cock he was blah blah and to ring her. She paid the 50p for the puncture repair. I never spoke to her again. Her loss

    Fuse bars - I definitely remember those! That's how we found out my eldest had a nut allergy as hubby gave her a bit when she was about 4 and her whole face became swollen - nightmare. Apart from that they were actually quite nice!
