My wife has been trying to remember the makers of a sweet called "counters"
They were made of milk chocolate and were similar to Cadbury's Buttons but smaller in size with a more polished appearence.
If anyone else can remember who made them it would also help to know if they are still available.....we beleive the packets were white,square shaped with either a kangaroo or Girrafe depicted on the front.
yours hopefully Mr&Mrs J.M.G

Toffee Twister ?
It was a boiled type sweet similar to the taste of a Werthers but twisted stick shaped about a foot long with a core of chocolate - I think they were called toffee twister but I could be very wrong. They were sold mid fifties, early sixties.

I believe it was made by Cadbury's and appeared in the 1970's and also disappeared later that decade.
Milk Tray Bar - like Fry's Five Centres but they were chocolates from the Milk Tray collection fused into a bar.

Am I getting the name wrong? When I was at High School in the late 50'/early 60's I used to buy a bubblegum that I think was called Bobby's Bubblegum. It was an oblong pink piece with white dusting on it and the wrapper was white with green writing on and the name, and I think there was a picture on it too. It was the best bubblegum I ever tasted and seemed (well at the time at any rate!) to keep it's flavour really well. It was either 2 for a penny or a penny per piece. Does anyone know what happened to it, or even remember anything like my description? I went to school in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex and remember buying it at a little shop at the top of Kingston Lane just before the Old Shoreham Road.

Hi, Nutty bar was great and was made by rowntree. It was discontinued in the mid eighties due to a drop in sales.
Many thanks G.

As a childhood favourite a few cubes of Milk Motoring whilst driving with relations completed a rare day out to the seaside.
I have not seen this chocolate bar consisting of fruit and biscuits for many years although substitutes are probably available.
Unsure as to who made Milk Motoring during the 1950's.
Do you have any information?

Mint Cracknell was a two piece bar a bit like todays Bounty My Mum would only ever buy one & my sister & I had to have half each. My ambition was to have a whole one to myself one day but by the time I had money of my own they had stopped making them! They DID cut your tongue tho' !

I'm trying to find some sweets my parents used to buy for myself and my brother in the late seventies/early eighties. We think they might have been called magic beans. They were sold by the quarter with a semi-hard shell that would change colour until you got to a chewy, fruit flavoured middle.
Can't find them anywhere!

What ever happened to the chocolate bar that was a bit like Bounty, with coconut, but had other bits in, like cherries? Can't remember the name! It had a blue wrapper, I think, it was lovely! C

I remember a chocolate bar, a bit like a cadbury's flake but it was peppermint - like a peppermint aero. It was called Feathermint and was probably around in the late 50's/early 60's.

Fizzy Flying Saucers
Re the newspaper articles listing Fizzy Flying Saucers as "1970" sweets - they were out long before that. I remember buying 4 for a penny in 1952 - then they went up to an extortionate 2 for a penny.

Please can you find out who made, and what happened to Cabana's. They were milk chocolate bars with a moist coconut and cherry centre. The advert was brilliant too!!
Posted on November 13, 2003

Coconut Mushroom Sweet
Whatever happened to the coconut mushroom sweet, with a single peanut in the centre?
They had a different flavour from the type that are currently available.. Perhaps it was the fat from the peanut!

Border Cream Eggs
Many years ago - more than I care to remember, one could buy a small, egg shaped chocolate in two halves.
They were made by Cadbury and were called Border Cream Eggs. The centre was available for a while in the Roses Assortment, but I don't know if it still is.
They were much, much nicer than those horrible over-sweet Creme Eggs that are now available.
Do you know what happened to them?

Frys Punch bar
Am interested to know if you have heard of Frys Punch bar - circa 1960.
It was a milk chocolate coating over toffee filling.
The bar was long and narrow with the an undulating top.
Know one else remembers it and I need confirmation that it did exist!
I have not seen it since the mid 60s
