Good Afternoon, Is it possible to get hold of packets of PACERS (the white squares with the green stipes). I’ve seen you sell spearmint chews but I don’t want those. Kyri
Any idea on if you can get Pacers?? or who made them. Sharon
Please please please find Spangles! I think they did liquorice, but any flavour would do. Also, Pacers, woob woob woob! Please please please find Spangles! I think they did liquorice, but any flavour would do. Also, Pacers, woob woob woob! Gennie

I’ve just had a flashback to PACERS whilst browsing your mint selections. Whatever happened to those yummy, chewy little green & white striped squares. They were FAB – bring them back I say!
Dear All, Have seen your section on Pacers and am so disappointed that they are no longer around.Â All of my friends and I thought they were the best mint sweet of the 70′s.Â We should start a campaign to bring them back.Â Were they by Trebor?Â Thanks SusieÂ (Mint lover!)
Pacers were originally called Opal Mints, a mint version of Opal Fruits as the name suggests. Michael
Hi, I’m beginning to wonder whether I imagined the existence of Pacers (little white mint chewy sweets with green stripes on them) as nobody that I know can remember them.Â Do you have any idea what happened to them? Emma Â
Green and white striped mint flavoured square-shaped sweets in a tube – in around the mid 1980s…..
I agree with you on pacers….that’s why I’ve ordered loads of Mojo spearmint from you! Also what happened to Cabana bars? they were coconut with cherries in covered with chocolate, delicious. Sweets aren’t the same these days, Haribo, yuk….
Hi Just discovered your site – excellent. Re Pacers – I am old enough to remember they used to actually be called Opal Mints in the ’60s. GK
They were around in the 80′s. They were approximately the size of chewits with a unforgettable spearmint flavour. Without Pacers, your website is incomplete…..
A bit like spearmint Opal Fruits (we refuse to call them Starburst!). They were soft and chewy and delicious. They started off all white and then the manufacturers added 3 green stripes. And then they stopped making them…why oh why???
