    Let's take a trip down memory lane ....

    Thought it might be a bit of nostalgic fun to think back to things and say.. do u remember ? .. for example .. do you remember the little white dot that appeared on your tv at the end of the night.?... God Save the Queen being played on the tv at the end of the night .... Clackers - those highly fun but dangerous balls on strings ... Golden Nuggets breakfast cereal ... and Spangles

    Think of any more?? ...

    And you can still get Golden Nuggets breakfast cereal but maybe not the same as the one's you are referencing.

    I reckon Golden Nuggets came back by popular demand .. am sure they are second time round. I am also convinced that Cadburys Creme Eggs are half the size they used to be !!! ;-)

    Spangles - Orange flavour - Mmmmm

    One thing that I always like thinking back to were the little freebies in the cereal boxes.

    Shrinky Dinks
    There were little frisbee type things the had a little flipper thing with them.
    The transfers you used to get and could put them on the picture on the back of the box.

    It's been so long since I''ve had one I never knew they had. But they used to be one of my favourites, along with Marathon (still have a hard time calling it Snickers some 20 years later!).

    Am sure that Texan Bars did make a brief comeback (dont think they are still around) .. I know I am older and bigger, but am pretty sure they came back a heck of a lot smaller!! :?

    There was something (not sure if they still make them) that was pretty much the same as a milky way (old style) called Flyte!

    Opal fruits should have stayed as opal fruits and not silly starbust.

    Cadburys always insist that Curly Wurlys, and Creme Eggs, etc. haven't gotten smaller, it's just an illusion where we get bigger, but I don't believe a word of it.

    Yeah i think either they make everything smaller now or we all just got bigger. Probably just a mixture of both!
