Think it was made Burton's; a popular provider of childrens sweets and snacks in the 1970s in Leicestershire primary schools. Everlasting toffee was very hard and made in a long flat strip and covered in a paper wrapper. Lasted for weeks!

Apple-flavoured green, yellow and red balls, boiled sweet. VERY sour, shredded your tongue, mouth-watering, etc. Bought in jars in 60s.

Fizzle Sticks - 1974 or thereabouts
Candy stick, about 5 inches long, about half-inch wide, oval, because it had been cast or moulded in two halves, so there was a seam down the long edge. Texture like a big "sweet Cigarette" (I know!), they had several fruit flavour/colours - yellow/lemon, pink/strawberry, orange and green, which changed from light green to dark in about 1975 and were then harder and less pleasant-tasting. I did find a few in a Huddersfield petrol station in about 1986, but haven't seen any since.
I bought an entire boxfull (100?) with my first week's Saturday job wages. Late 1973, Coventry).

Penny chew a bit like black jacks, but half liquorice and half luridly coloured "fruit" bit. I particularly remember black and purple (presumably blackcurrent) and, I think, something horrible like black and orange (yes liquorice and orange flavour!)

Pastel coloured sticks with a mild sherbert taste with a slightly chalky consistency. very popular in the 70's and early 80's....

Merrills bon bons
They were packed in tubular wrapping (similar to Rolo)and were butterscotch on the outside and a soft centre within. Utterly delicious and were available in the late 50's and early 60's but haven't seen them since....

This was a chocolate covered (I think) meusli bar from the late 60's early 70's - certainly no later than 1973, produced by Nestle. Thier advertising slogan was, Would you risk it for a SwissKit?'. Priceless!

They were tiny sour little sweets that came in a cardboard box with two different flavours separated into 2 compartments. They still make them I think its Willy Wonka, they are so wonderful, please stock them!

My husband and I love these. They are basically the same as the liquorice whips you sell, but are red.

Amazing'...or 'Amazin' choc bar
OH it was sheer bliss, as a child in the 70's it was a bar containing soft nougat, raisins and was just divine, I know the wrapper had purple on it and even rememberd part of the t.v ad words: " Its amazin, what raisins can do...all that..." Alas, thats all I remember. I dont know who made it either, I'd love to see one again, even just a wrapper, for old times sake! Good luck!

Hot coals from newcastle
This may not be the actual name of the sweet, but the were like sour pips only black, aniseed tasting almost, and the got hot and turned red when you sucked them. they were available about 10 years ago.

It may have been the original star bar
Fudge middle loose peanut halves pressed onto the outside and about 4 inches in length, the wrapper was brown celophane - I remember that because I used to look at everything through it!! writing may have been yellow or orange on it and it would have been the mid to late 70's even very early 80's....

Red Liquorice whips. They had an aniseed taste to them rather than a strawberry taste...

Boiled sweets in flat square tablets with a delicate flavour, usually dusted with icing sugar, and sold loose by the quarter. I remember them from my school days around 1977, from a tiny little sweet shop.

"Something (maybe Golden) Nuggets?
It was bubble/chewing gum shaped in the form of nuggets of gold and came in a small drawsting bag made to look like a miners gold pouch. I think I've still got one at home in the loft (with my Jacks in!)

Candy about the size of an average lollipop, the shape of a sphere that had been squashed slightly. Light and airy, kind of like cinder toffee, but fruit flavoured with a fizzy coating. I remember them being red but I'm sure there were other flavours.
Posted on March 3, 2005
Chew bar about 5 inches long and half inch wide, I remember them in toffee flavour and a fruit flavour possibly rhubarb and custard. When warm they were really stretchy, my friend and I used to see who could stretch theirs the longest and would have to stand on chairs they were so stretchy.... gross huh :)
