Sour Sour jokers
It was the most sour sweet I have ever had in the whole world! I love sour things, I eat lemons like chocolate but those blew my mind. I wanna find some again!

You used to get orange, lemon, and raspberry ones. Bright yellow, orange and pink. They were round and had a rough sherbety coating on the outside. The raspberry ones are the best not bothered about the others. Used to get them in pick and mixes but not seen for a few years........

They were available in various flavours. Boiled, rectangular shaped,flat, sweets. They were covered in sherbert and were quite sour to start but when the sherbert had gone they were nice and kind of "tart", thats how the lady described them to me! Gorgeous and I will love you if you find them for me!

Beeches Chocolates are so special. As you open a box of Beeches continental chocolates, your sense of smell is met by the dark chocolate coverture that surpasses all other chocolates in this category.
The last time I came across these chocolates was in a small town called Clitheroe not far from where I live. They were a 1lb box and labelled "limited edition". They do all types of ranges - mint creams/ fruit creams etc etc including chocolate brazils....

I know it's not really a sweet, but it's a classic from the 1980's, I just wondered if you knew if they still actually made it??? And where to get it?

They were long like a finger, but flat, were two colours. (purple, orange, or yellow, green, etc)they had the consistency like fizzy-coke bottles, but were thinner, and they were sour all over. The makers also introduced sour keys and then tiny sours, but these long ones were the best...are they to be found!!!

I cannot remember the name but the sweet came as a very hard toffee type stick with a chocolate fondant centre. The stick was wrapped in a brown cellophane wrapper. Had a slight coffee flavour to it. I hope you can help!

Think it was by Rowntree's, had a brown wrapper, yellow writing. It was a cyclindrical bar of peanuts bound together. a bit like the nut bars you can buy today but it wasn't flat and the nuts werent so tightly packed together - hence more flavour.
