there is a seaside town called bridlington and they have a 70s sweet shop i were there last year, was great to see all the sweets brought back some good memories. i could have bought them all

remember the old bazooka chewing gum and you use to collect the wrappers and send off for stuff

Used to eat copious amounts of Jolly Ranchers as a kid. I was telling my kids about the fake cigarettes you used to get, chocolate with little paper outer covering. Chocolate cigarettes! For shame.

Anyone tried the Drumstick soft gummies, yumm all the fun and taste of a drumstick but kinder to the fillings (we really did seem to eat lots of sweets going by this thread, lol) There are soft refreshers( chews) gums too but not as nice , i just love when you bite in and the fizz comes out.
