Whatever happened to... Fizzel Sticks?
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).
