Mild taste of germolene(its true!) and you got a smiley face transfer tattoo in the wrapping, one penny I think!

I was told about your site when visiting a friend in Dundee. He got a voucher for the site from some of his other mates, and was in the process of overdosing on Sherbet Lemons and Raspberry Skulls when I arrived. Naturally we got talking and realised another favourite from long ago that needs to be investigated.
When our local ice-cream van toured the streets back in the eighties, kids used to be covered in Acid-man style faces that covered every bit of visible skin. The source was a random transfer that you slapped onto a newly licked piece of skin. These transfers were found in bubble gum, the same lurid colour as the Barratt's Shrimps, which tasted a lot like the best smelling antiseptic cream 'Germoline'.
Can't remember their name, but maybe the similarities with stuff from a medicine cabinet can explain that!
Any info would be grand, but products would be better!

Am I getting the name wrong? When I was at High School in the late 50'/early 60's I used to buy a bubblegum that I think was called Bobby's Bubblegum. It was an oblong pink piece with white dusting on it and the wrapper was white with green writing on and the name, and I think there was a picture on it too. It was the best bubblegum I ever tasted and seemed (well at the time at any rate!) to keep it's flavour really well. It was either 2 for a penny or a penny per piece. Does anyone know what happened to it, or even remember anything like my description? I went to school in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex and remember buying it at a little shop at the top of Kingston Lane just before the Old Shoreham Road.
