It was the most sour sweet I have ever had in the whole world! I love sour things, I eat lemons like chocolate but those blew my mind. I wanna find some again!
Striper or Stryper bar It was a chewy fruit flavoured bar that had a green wrapper and the bar itself was rainbow coloured and each colour was a different flavour……
I cannot remember the name but the sweet came as a very hard toffee type stick with a chocolate fondant centre. The stick was wrapped in a brown cellophane wrapper. Had a slight coffee flavour to it. I hope you can help!
LOOKED LIKE A FLYING SAUCER, ROUND WITH EDGE AROUND MIDDLE AND LITTLE BUMPS ON UPPER & LOWER SURFACES, ALL PINK, HARD BOILED SWEET AND CHEWY SPEARMINT BIT IN THE MIDDLE, THINK THEY ALSO CAME IN COLA I THINK!
Candy sticks about 12cm in length and 1cm diameter (oval shape), made from soft fizzy sherbet type candy. Came in three or four colours and were dusted with sugar/cornflour type powder.
A flat gummy sweet covered in sherbert….
Triangle shaped boiled sweet,tan in colour chewy on middle…..
Whirligig (may not be correct spelling) 4 or possibly 5 intersecting solid chocolate circles (a bit like a row of olympic rings). This sweet would be found at the penny sweets counter, I remember them costing 2p when the average goodie cost 1p (in the ’70′s). They came in a display box and were sold [...]
A small square box which opened at the top with the best sherbert ever, quite fizzy.. box made from same stuff as sherbert fountain, the box had pictures on every side…..
Strawberry Hearts (i think) They were small red sugar coated heart shaped marshmallow type things in a long white bag that you could hardly get your hand into!
Soft sugar-paste type candy made to look like the above – don’t know the make but was available in Lancashire in the early 1960s….
Don’t remember the name. Was in a brown wrapped and must have had a short run, maybe only in the early 1990′s. Chocolate hexagonals, about 5 to a pack, with caramel and and a single hazelnut in the centre of each. Think there was a version in a blue packet – maybe dark chocolate??
It was from Cadbury’s. Had a whipped chocolate mousse type filling and was covered in Cadburys’ milk chocolate which had been ‘spun’ over it to make it look like a birds nest…I think!
Like a mint Smartie but imported from Finland. The outer shell was pale blue, pale green or white and mint-flavoured, wrapped around a chocolate centre. The sweet shops stocked them late 1970′s to early 1980′s. They came in little boxes with flip-top lids.
V V V V Sour sort of bon bon things came in apple and lemon flavours had a really chewy centre……
It was a chewy toffee bar and it had a Bull on the wrapper. Available in the mid 80′s as I remember??
cachous/cashous Very delicate flavoured tiny sweets, similar texture to Edinburgh Rock, usually mixed litle sweets,violet/rose/lemon/raspberry etc, as small as midget gems possibly, made by the same people as Parma violets?
It was a kind of boiled sweet which was blue and white striped. Can remember what it tasted of, but I remember that they were good!!!
Chocolate coated macaroons about the size and shape of a wagon wheel, I think 6 to a pack remember them with cold milk at the end of the seventies S.G.
I loved Cadbury’s Cabana bars, though I can’t remember precisely what was in them. I do however, remember the use of the Banana Boat Song in the advertising (‘Hey Mister Cadbury man, bring me a cabana…’). When were they discontinued? They must have had a very short lifespan. Ovaltine bars were a favourite of mine [...]
