    Texan Bars - Yummy

    Jelly Tot's

    I was always (and still am) fascinated by Moon Dust. Some might know it as Space Candy, the tongue popping stuff. I'd save my dinner money from school to bay a few bags of it on my way home from school. Then had to make up a meal to mum!!

    i loved black jacks and aniseed balls i know they still do them but they are nothing like they used to be:x

    The chewy pink bar with the fizzy bits in - I can't remember what its called.

    I am just sat here munching my way through a huge bag of cola bottles

    American Cream Soda (like a pale pink sherbet), was really nice and would last for ages.

    Argentina chews were good. :thumbsup:

    I just bought a big bag of mini Wham bars! Prefer refreshers though! Does anyone remember Cadbury Secrets? Chocolate bars filled with chocolate mouse and covered in a kind of nesty pattern of chocolate. Yum! I also loved Charlie Chalk 2p white chocolates and 1/2 p Mojo's.

    Ooooh, are you talking about them long rainbow fizzy strip sweets...I used to eat them all the time and I loved those big cola bottle sweets...I used to bite the lid off and try and drink the contents. :giggle:

    What's that long red tube thing called with white stuff in the middle...oh god...I'm terrible with sweet names...I just like the look of something and grab it. :giggle:

    I loved those chocolate cigarette things

    also Fish and Chips (the white chocolate/candy things!)

    also Tools, which were normal milk chocolate/candy things

    Fish and Chips! White choc of course.

    Rainbow dust? Loved rainbow drops too. There is a sweetshop near me whuch only sells old fashioned sweets. It is tremendous, like an Aladin's cave of sugar! The online shops charge afr to much for sweets and p&p.

    For any of you wanting to get any of your old faves!

    my mum loved flumps

    Chocolate tools and White choc fish n chips
    Chocolate cup cakes (they were small pieces of choc in different coloures foil cups - they used to melt in the mouth)
    Highland toffee bars (got some recently in home bargains so well chuffed!)
    and finally nerds!
    Sorry about the long list but sweets in the 80's/90's were so much better than today.
