:oops: Err No, sorry! Never heard of them, Aztecs, Revels, Jelly/Tiger/Candy/Teddy Tots, MoJo's, Pickled Onion Tudor crisps, Strawberry Aero, Space Dust ... all yes (I need to stop now) but Relays, no

I remember them, you are spot on, I loved them.
They came in an orange bag like Revels, round shape, crispy coating like minstrels and toffee centre.
1970's!!!!!!!!!!!

Milk tray bars were Cadburys bars, about 6 or 8 chocolates joined together to form a bar.
With different flavours (a runny lime cordial, strawberry cream, orange cream....etc). Nice!

OMG!! I have been going on for years about relays and people thought i was mad and had made them up but they were the best!!! Should never have been discontinued!

I know this has been mentioned in the past but they should really bring back Pacers!!! And Biarritz...chocolate bars with bits of orange or mint candy crunch.....i adored them!!

You got, at most... 20 - and those would have been 1/2p teddy bears - and they were tiny!

My mum used to hate taking me to get a penny mix... I took forever to choose!

I felt like loads sweets were a rare treat as a kid.

When i was a kid i remember my sister coming home from school with some sweets from a birthday bag or something, well i went on a tantrum and my dad ended up buying me 50p worth of penny things that bag lasted me about a week lol..

Yeah we used to get a chocolate bar on friday and that was about it.

Kids today with their xboxes & iphones, they don't know they're born.

PS. It was revels.

My parents sent me and my sister to Sunday school, I was only about 6, and they used to give us £1 each week when we went. I was naive enough to trust my sister that the £1 we got was for sweets - each Sunday morning we'd load up, go to Sunday school, then go home and hide our stash in our bedrooms. One week though, my mum & dad took a spur of the moment decision to go visit my uncle & aunt in London, so after stuffing our pockets with sweets (and a quid could get you loads back then!), we were headed off to the church when my mum & dad rocked up in the car. Only then did I realise why my sister had insisted that the sweets should be hidden... the £1 was actually for the church donation box.

Whoops.

It was a very quiet journey. After the initial shouting. My dad then tucked into our sweets on the way.
