Spangles all the way  ;D

Anyone remember Daredevils? The huge gobstoppers that had layers that were redhot followed by a cooling layer.

Also: Sherbert fountains, UFO's, The original Curly Wurly, Pacers ..... mmmm ..... there's a great sweetie shop in Leicester!

What about fekking marathons and opal fruits? I know they are still around but changing the sodding name - me don't like much!

Cabana for me - I used to love those babies!

Space Dust used to be good if you put a whole packet in your mouth! LOL!

I know what you mean about the Gobstoppers but i don't remember the name daredevils? I can't for the life of me remember exactly what they were called but . . .

Where is this sweetie shop? I need to see . . .

What about Mojos? They used to half a pee! 100 for 50p - cool cool cool - you don't get nothing for 50p these days . . . Sod me I now sound like Mrs Brady Old Lady from Viz . . . you remember love we used to be able to see twelve films, a few drinks and a fish supper for 1p . . . oh the days!!!!

Thanks babe,
Do you think it is something we could sell? In the tea rooms or museum? Museum might be a better idea - retro . . . ?
