Thread: Any items, television programmes or sweets from the past

    Any items, television programmes or sweets from the past

    Any items, television programmes or sweets from the past that you wish were freely available today?

    In my childhood, my primary school had a sweet shop around the corner where you could buy any sweet for 1p. Bazuka bubble gum, white chocolate mouse, pink marshmallow mouse, sherbet sweets, sherry lips and as for lollipops we had funny faces and rocket.

    He don't like Marmite or Marmite crisps, but yet he don't like Bovril but he did like Bovril crisps!!! He remembers the Jar of Bovril being on the packet of Bovril crisps.

    Does anyone remember a choc bar called Bliss from the 60's. I loved Old english spangles and arrow bars.

    I am a serial sweetie eater. I'm surprised I still have teeth.: You can get some of those at Sainsbury's and Tesco and WH Smith pic n mix section. You can also get some of those mentioned above here:

    I haven't been able to track down indivdually wrapped chocolate covered turkish delight, which used to be in some pic n mix places, or coffee flavoured milk chocolate.
