Synonymous with Christmas for anyone under 50, these much-missed mini-choc bars disappeared when manufacturer Terry's of York was gobbled up by multinational food giant, Kraft, in 2005. The foil-paper wrappers and flavours were, however, seared by rote and gluttony into the memory of a generation.

Liquorice pipes. They'd never be allowed today

Bring back your childhood with these nostalgic licorice pipes. As a kid in a candy store you can order as few or as many as you need, these are sold individually and each wrapped.

Loved Mint Cracknell! My favourite childhood chocolate!

Maxkintosh's Mint Cracknel - remember these? Out about the same time as Swisskit. Thin chocolate bar with a bright green mint centre which was like fibre glass.
