Spangles - remember these? I loved them! Nan used to bring me a packet if she picked me up from school

Spangles - remember these? In 1974 they had fizzy flavours like Orangeade and Lemonade. Spangles are a good reminder of a time when, as Roald Dahl once said, "the sweetshop was the very centre of our lives"
