Narrow chocolate bar, in about 5 or 6 sections. Each piece was a nut surrounded in a gooey mixture, runnier than the walnut whip mixture. They were about in the early 60's, when I was a child, and they were gorgeous. I only had one now and again as a treat, as they weren't 'childrens' prices!

A pack of chocolate sweets, white on the inside and dark on the outside, then there were milk chocolate on the inside and white on the outside. oh they were the best. I've been trying to track them down for years, when I saw your site in the Sun I thought you might be able to help. I'm not even sure who made them but if you could get some I'd buy from you for the rest of my life!

Not sure but it was bubble gum
Mild taste of germolene(its true!) and you got a smiley face transfer tattoo in the wrapping, one penny I think!

They are like the strawberry flavoured laces, but I just cannot find the anniseed flavoured ones. I put down Maltesers as my favourite of all time, but I've just remembered, these anniseed laces were!

A disc/dome shaped sweet, with a buttered shell and chocolate centre (made by Nuttalls possibly)

A tube,I think they were hard boiled outside and soft inside but I could be wrong. Certainly a tube of sweets though,about 1977.

2 versions. First was a single chocolate pyramid with a mint centre. The second version was a rectangular bar of mini chocolate pyramids with a mint truffle centre. They were around in late 80's till early 90's I think.

Dinosour Egg (I think)
Used to come in a little square box. Egg shaped (of course). Used to suck through several layers of different coloured sour tasting shells (bit like jawbreakers) until you got to the sherbert middle. About 20 years ago. Also did a water melon flavoured one.

Soft sugar-paste type candy made to look like the above - don't know the make but was available in Lancashire in the early 1960s....

Don't remember the name. Was in a brown wrapped and must have had a short run, maybe only in the early 1990's. Chocolate hexagonals, about 5 to a pack, with caramel and and a single hazelnut in the centre of each. Think there was a version in a blue packet - maybe dark chocolate??
