A sweet that is really popular with my friends & I is the soft nougat that they make the dolly mixtures with (the 2 coloured ones). It comes in large rolls with the 2 flavours mixed together - I always buy bags full when I visit the Ideal Home Exhibition (the sweet stall!) if you stocked that you would have a regular large order from myself! I can't get it anywhere else except the home show & Thorpe Park!!!

I loved Cadbury's Cabana bars, though I can't remember precisely what was in them. I do however, remember the use of the Banana Boat Song in the advertising ('Hey Mister Cadbury man, bring me a cabana...'). When were they discontinued? They must have had a very short lifespan.
Ovaltine bars were a favourite of mine in the early eighties, but no-one else, other than my brothers, seems to remember that they ever existed.
Basically, they didn't seem to be much more than a bar of chocolate with bits of Ovaltine powder in - slightly gritty but deliciously malty!
Is there anything even vaguely similar to either of these products still in production anywhere?

I remember my mom sending me to the CO-OP for these. It was exactly like the chocolate orange (tap it and unwrap it if you were lucky and "tapped" it hard enough!). It was around in the early '80s for sure.
What a great site.

I've been trying to get cremola foam for years-any chance you could stock it?

I am a fan of nutty bars and was wondering if such a thing was available.
Also, can you still get spangles, and something similar to a texan bar ?
I will not say what I would do for a nutty bar, I haven't had one in maybe 20 years!!
What ever happened to the Cabana bar by Cadburys ?
I look forward to hearing from you

Hello, I was wondering whether you know anywhere you can get hold of a chocolate bar that was called secret. They made them a few years ago. I can@t remember which company made them though.

Whatever happened to "Rubble Gum" by Leaf??
A bag of different coloured and flavoured pieces of chewing gum that looked like tiny pebbles.
Bring 'em back!

Cabana and Nutty Bars
Many moons ago there used to be two types of choc bars. One was called a cabana which had a coconut and cherry centre and chocolate covered . The other was called a nutty which had a fudge centre covered in soft toffee and encrusted with peanuts. These you can no longer buy. Do you have any ideas if you can still get them or have they been taken out of production. It would be great if you can find this out for me many thanks.

Hi guys, I hope I can help a bit - Nutty Bars were the best if you know any US service personnel ask them to go on base and purchase some PAY DAY bars as these are the exact replica happy hunting guys!

I'm only a young lad of age 15 and wasn't around when most of these sweet where out but I'd love to know whatever happened to Jolly Ranchers, those hard boiled square shaped sweets that came in a packet. They had the most unique flavours and where delicious, yet they seemed to have vanished.
Also a couple of years ago nestle made these white and milk chocolate covered pretsels, and they where the nicest sweet ever but they where taken off the shelves quite quickly. Do you know what happened to them as me and my mum loved them.
Thanx for the help

Hi, Just found your website, delicious!! I wondered if you knew if they continued to make a chocolate bar that I shall describe but cannot for the life of me remember the name of. All I know is that my mum and I loved them! It was a bar of chocolate, shaped into 5 hexagonal areas, filled with silky caramel and a hazelnut in each one. It was around in the mid to late 80's? May have been a Nestle product..

Just wondered, whatever happened to Palm Toffee?
I remember rotting my teeth on it in the 50's. Treacle, plain toffee, banana flavoured and possibly others too.
You have a wonderful website, it literally makes the taste buds active!

Frys Five Centres
Frys Five Centres
This was around in the 1970's (along with a Cadburys bar which was like a box of chocolates in a bar). However it was withdrawn -
The bar of Chocolate that was a box of chocolates was called the Milk Tray bar and featured eight of the chocolates from the box of Milk Tray. The Lime barrell. the orange half moon and the strawberry were my faves...
....and on Aztec bars, I bought one in Angelsey when they were briefly re-issued there in around 1996. The original bars tied in with the 1968 Olympics ..not as nice as I remember them ..great purple wrapper though.
