Whatever happened to... Fizz Bombs?
I used to go crazy over them when at Junior school (around 1982). The ingredients were probably banned by the EC for being too tasty.

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.

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........

Shaped like an ellipse, hard (boiled sweet style hard) lump covered in sugar crystals. Came in either orange or blackcurrant flavour. From ye olden days of Bazooka Joe bubble gum!

Fizzy round sweet, hard, but goes chewy in mouth,about same diameter as a 10p piece. I think they came in more than one flavour, but I remember the strawberry ones. This would have been late seventies to early eighies. Sold in jars.

Any idea where I can get a few jars of the old favourite "Fizz Bombs"
in the north east a company called dobsons did them but they are no longer around
I would pay good money to find them
