sweets and drinks from childhood, got one youve forgotton!

Cremola Foam! Came in a small can with a drawing of a boy and girl on the front. it was powder and you had to add water to it. That was in the days when a bottle of fizzy juice was a rare treat. It was bloody awful, but we loved it. i think it came in pink and lemonade? Can anybody confirm. Anybody got anymore thay loved?

I used to love Cremola Foam.

Baked bean flavoured puffs - loved them so much and remember they only cost 3p a bag!!!

(how is your friend doing btw - his health improving?)

I also used to love the little chocolates that you got in the foil cups, you can still get them but there not the same anymore, stupid companies taking out all the e numbers and additives making all my food boring lol.

That reminded me of the chocolate tobacco you used to get, little strands of coconut covered in chocolate.:)

Oh thought of another, the little jellys you'd get that were shaped like monsters, oh and Johnny onion rings, there no the same anymore either.

Anybody remember Tab Clear, made by Coca Cola, tasted disgusting.

Hey whats the proper name for these jellys? missed them!

loved penny flumps - dont taste the same now

Push pops(saw them a few weeks ago but they looked tiny) Everlasting gobstoppers, atomic fireballs, Wispa Golds(different than now) proper wham bars/refreshers/Roy Of The Rovers/Irn Bru bars etc, I remember Wham bars being about 1/3 fizzy stuff.

Fizzy Lizzies, those 5p bubble gums you got from ice cream van, real sweets haribo style but tasted totally different. Taz bars, Gummi Bears, Polo's, Polo fruits, polo gummis and more.

EDIT : also forgot about stuff like American Cream Soda, Ice cream drinks, chocolate cigarettes, Jolly Ranchers, Nerds, Dweebs, Dib Dabs, millions etc.

I miss old sweets, I had magic stars the other day, the tast like chalk, just coloured brown, revolting. Miss the day sweets had a dangerous amount of E-numbers and sugar. *sigh*

Yet kids then seemed healthier than today and you have stricter health and safety these days.

Id rather have a kid eat sweets than live off McDonalds and take aways and energy drinks.
