Beechnut chewing gum
I had some Wrigleys Extra chewing gum the other day, and my Mum thought they were the Beechnut chewing gum as they were a similar size and shape.
If they still make it I would like to buy some for her. It would be a real blast from the past for her!

Came in a box and could be sucked for DAYS (literally) - they were so big at first they barely fit in your mouth and got smaller and smaller - so long ago I can't remember what was inside but I remember it being amazing!!!!

I am sure that I can remember a sweet from the 70's called Ipso's.
The were little sweets that came in a box. I have no idea who made them but I do remember them coming in different flavours and they had a very strong sweet smell. Does anyone else remember these little boxes of delights?

Looking for an old favourite of my mum's they were called Nebury Fruits, a type of fruit jelly with a liquid centre.
Any help in finding a box would be much appreciated

Are you able to get the Raffaello sweets? They are made by the same people who make Ferrero Rocher and are made of a white crispy shell covered in desicated coconut and the shell contains a nut and a creamy filling.

Great site by the way!
When I was growing up I used to get liquorice selection boxes for Christmas they had things like your catherine wheels in and wands etc, but they also had liquorice pipes, have these been banned to stop kids imitating smoking? They were great, would like to get my hands on some!
Can you help?

orange and lemon slices
Great Website, I'm trying to find these sweets that my husband loves but I don't know their names.
They are orange and lemon slices that are slightly chewy with like a sugary/sticky sort of coating to them.
Not much help I know but if you know what they are or indeed have them already on your site then please could you let me know?

Cadburys secret bar
Cadburys secret bar - spiral wired chocolate over a soft creamy something. I can remember them vaguely. Any ideas what happened to that?
Or the wispa.
I remember going on a walk with the cubs and having some boiled sweets - blackcurrant and liquorice (but they were round balls) and I often had small fruity boiled sweets that were about the size and shape of a double thick 1p piece. Any ideas what they were???
Posted on January 17, 2004
Whatever happened to 'Blobs'? They were around in the late 70's?
Posted on January 16, 2004
Whatever happened to Ice Breaker. It was a chocolate bar with a pale blue wrapper and it had 'shards of glass' in the middle. Not sure who the manufacturer was. Was it replaced by anything.
Posted on January 15, 2004
Can you please tell me whatever happened to the bar of Palm toffee, with banana flavoured toffee sandwiched in between two layers of buttery creamy toffee, marked into squares for easy breaking? Is there any, anywhere?

Newberry Fruits.....Any ideas, please? Are they still made? Where can I buy them?
Thanks in advance

You mentioned on the website that Spangles were fruit-flavoured. In fact, the flavour that everyone reminisces about is "Old English" which was an elusive but compelling sweet spicy flavour, reminiscent of cinnamon, anise and cloves. They were superb, and if Mars thought that the fruit ones were what everyone requested, then their market research is as good as their chocolate, i.e. not very. I would cut off my right hand to taste them again.
Well, probably not, but they were delicious.

The Lime Cracknell came in the same wrapper as the more famous Mint, except it was white!
Posted on January 11, 2004
Any idea where I can get a few jars of the old favourite "Fizz Bombs"
in the north east a company called dobsons did them but they are no longer around
I would pay good money to find them

There is a sweet I used to have about forty years ago I can't remember what it was called, it was a chocolate nougat it came in orange wrappers and purple wrapper and you bought them by the quarter?

Fry's Chocolate sandwich
Please put me out of my misery and tell me if I'm mad.
I remember as a child being addicted to something called a Fry's Chocolate sandwich, one bar was a layer of plain, then a layer of milk, then another layer of plain, the other bar was the same in reverse.
NO-ONE remembers these except me - I've tried chocolate addicts of all ages and they all think I'm making it up - am I??? was it all just a dream??
Please tell me if anyone else has asked you for this.................

I am looking for an old chocolate candy called Secret. I do not recall who made it and it has been years since I have seen it. Do you recall this candy?

Pink Panther Bar
It was like Milky Bar but was pink and tasted pink...
Posted on January 6, 2004
Whatever happened to Trebor? Chocstix. They were wonderful. I note you stock barley sugar sticks but these were about 8 inches long and had a twist.

Can no longer find my favourite Dime Bars, either single or multipack. Do you have any news?
Excellent site, my 9year old grandson can't believe some of the sweets his father used to have.

Raspberry Ruffle Bars
I think the last time I bought one of these was about 10 years ago; I can't remember who made them but they were very similar to the Raspberry Ruffles you already sell, but obviously in bar form. Yummy coconut/raspberry filling! I think they were about 3 inches long, 1 inch wide and 0.5 an inch thick. Are they still made? Great site BTW.

I have lived in South Africa for 20 years and grew up (did I?) in the UK.
Sherbet Lemons??? Took me back many years. What about the coconut slivers? Remember? Yum. And the winter mixture with the clove flavour. Am I being too nostaligic?

I have been searching for these lollies for years!
I used to have them as a child in the 1970's.
I am not too sure of their name (I think it was something like "Strawberries")
They looked exactly like a medium size strawberry. Red in colour and a hard sugar coating on the outside with delicious moist coconut inside!
They were just divine.
