    Default What food from childhood dont you get anymore

    I was shoping the other day, looking at the sweets and remebering the demise of penny sweets and pick 'n' mix.

    Sure you still get this in some places but Hasbro have taken control and the range is poor in my eyes.

    YOu can still get certain items in packets but it aint good.

    Also does anyone remeber pork flavored crisps, but puffed potato in the shape of pigs, hollow inside.

    And finally a chocolate pudding with a bit of cream called Lovely

    Cheers.....Q

    Marathon bars - cos Snickers just aint the same
    Mojos - 1/2 penny chews
    Pacers - chewits for Celtic fans
    Sweet tabacco and sweet cigarettes with Superman on the front
    Fun bags with dodgy transfers in - Dick Turtle just aint the same neither
    Wigwams - pyramid shaped drinks in the freezer in summer
    Fish n chips - salt n vinegar biscuits cut into fish n chip shapes

    Ah man that brings back memories of the walk home from school.
    Did I ever tell you you're my hero?

    Space Dust?

    How about Cresta (it's frothy man) pop. It was kind of thick but...frothy. Man.

    Or Bettabars? Slabs of something that looked like unpopped corn kernels but tasted sweet and chewy.

    The baccy stuff was called Spanish something if I recall.
    We used to get little cloth bags of little bits of yellow bubbly - golden nuggets or summat.
