Spearmint Bar (I think)
It was pink in colour with squares about 5/6ins long and about 1ins wide and flat, chewy and obviously tasted of spearmint. I'm asking because it was my cousins favourite chewy bar and she is always going on about them. They were lovely though and made your mouth water.

It was a square shaped chewing gum & when you bit into it, a lovely fresh runny minty juice came pouring out to flavour the gum!

Nutty Bar or just "Nutty"
It was fudgy in the middle, covered in soft caramel and then rolled in unsalted peanuts. It was in a brown plastic wrapper with orange writing that said "nutty" on it in bold 70's style font. I remember it from the mid to late 70's after which time it disappeared. It's one of those sweets that everyone has fogotton about until reminded, and then they all long for it again.

A bar of peanuts held together with caramel.
I know you said you can't get them anymore - so, just to say that Hersheys 'Pay Day' bar is very similar. But they've strangely decided to coat salted(!) peanuts with caramel - so they're nowhere near as good as the british equivalent....but the taste grows on ya!!

Melody lollies? Possibly
It was a lolly, similar to Chup Chups, but it was shaped like a whistle, and it worked as one! Used to have great fun annoying adults for miles around, until you bit the end off...

A choclate bar consisitng of a layer of plain choclate, then a layer of milk, then another layer of plain or vice versa. No-one else remembers this and are trying to convince me it's a figment of my imagination but it used to be my favourite!

I lived in the Isle of Wight in 1980-1 and used to buy bloody jaspers all the time. A small blackcurrant flavour boiled sweet lolly - themed on haunted houses(?). No idea if it was a regional thing or what. Delicious!
