Heard from one of my friends today that it's the 30th anniversary of the Charlie and the Chocolate factory original film.
We started talking retro sweets... opal fruits before they were starburst... marathon bars before they were snickers... How creme eggs seem to have halfed in size.. (maybe we're just bigger?!) How you could get a 10p mix and have 20 sweeties in it... ah those were the days...
What's your favourite old sweetie?

Lol I am still utterly thankful that some high placed genius saw fit to bring back the Wispa!
What a legend!
My sweetie was 17 years old - but that was a long, long, long time ago
3d (Thrupenny) Jamboree bags
Penny bubblies (Anglo)
Just off the top of my head - Fruit salad and Blackjacks both 4 for 1d (that's old pence),Sherbet fountain, with a stick of licorice, refreshers - small round fizzy sweet, fruit flavour spangles, flying saucers, sweet tobacco (flavoured coconut),milky lunch chocolate bar,Fry's 5 boys chocolate bar.
Gotta go with Del on this. Flying saucers and sweet tobacco were just awesome. Curly wurly shouldn't be discounted either though.
