Old Betty Plant's Herbal Cough Sweets
(Bright) Orange oval sweets wrapped individually in clear cellophane wrappers. Don't remember buying them for their medicinal benefits and they tasted quite differently from most other herbal cough sweets. They were always quite expensive, and I could buy them at least up til the late 80's (probably later) from my local 'olde sweete shoppe'. I think the name I have given is fairly accurate ?!

sister sweet to Cherry Lips
You have them with cherry lips. the sister sweet, were in lots of flavours and were kind of round with flat bottom?? They came in a triangular long tube then you could get them by the 1/4 in sweet shops. They were called something else but I can't for the life of me remember what it was. They were lovely!

Gonks came in two colours (pink or yellow) they were very large and would only just fit in your mouth - I guess as an adult they might seem a bit smaller, but as a child they were enormous! The sweets were hard and brittle, but would soften and become chewy when sucked (they were too big to chew straight away). They had a slightly fizzy or was it just sugar coating?

Pink Pillows (I think... at least that's what we called them!)
Came ONLY from Forbouys chain of sweet shops in the 1980's(Fieldway, New Addington, Croydon, Surrey - inparticular). They were Hard, Pink, Huge, kind of triangular in shape. Strawberry flavoured. Had a tangy pink sherbert/sugary coating. Lasted for ages. Had to hold them and suck them - couldn't manage a whole one in the mouth all at once (or maybe that's because I was alot younger then lol)
