UK - Cadbury's CurlyWurly - we got loads of these as Dad worked for Cadburys and the factory shop sold all the seconds off cheap. Curly Wurlys must have gone wrong a lot because we seemed to get loads of them. Not Curly Wurlys again Dad!

Walls ice lollies

Ice lollies from the good old days, two of my favorites which I bought both from the Ice Cream Man and the local shops were Zoomand Fab What were yours?


Fish and Chips - my favourite from the shop when I was a little girl. My mum used to walk me there! Got a box of these now in my cupboard downstairs!

Terrys Bitz chocolate bar amazing mint one!

Bitz Bars- My Mum still makes the best homemade version of these :)

Toffos, don't see them anymore!

Toffos were chewy toffee sweets that came in several versions. A standard toffee flavoured version, assorted mixed flavours and a mint one. The mixed pack contained banana, chocolate, strawberry and toffee.

if anyone bought me these i'd be like the happiest person ever!!

Drumstick lollipops are made by Swizzels Matlow - world famous fro producing some of the best sweets money.

Cherry on a Cake: ICED GEMS

I used to spy these gems at Chinese grocery shops. They were sold amoung many other kinds of biscuits which were stored and displ.

Black Jacks and Fruit Salad - used to buy these at three for a penny in pre-decimal coinage.  Then the price was hiked up to three for a new penny as the UK went headlong into price inflation, causing the dark days of the 1970s when wages couldn't keep up!

Trebor Fruit Salads & Black Jacks used to be 4 for a penny at Yellows sweet shop on the corner !
