As I kid I never liked Flying Saucers they were over before you knew it (hate the feel of polystyrene and cotton wool arghh). Sadly I'm at the age where I go to nostalgia sweet shops and start trying old stuff mostly to my disappointment as my palate has changed as I get older of all my old favs (MB Bars, Kola Kubes, sherbet fountains, White Mice, Swizzles /Parma, Violets, and Coconut Mushrooms,) are way to sweet only Chelsea Whoppers (although now as flat as a piece of paper) and Spanish Gold have stood the test of time - Spangls and jelly snakes et I have yet to try again.

If you can find Spangles, it'll be a miracle. They aren't made anymore.Wah! :cry:

I couldn't get enough sweets as a kid, and I still buy them now.

Did anyone used to like the Pink Panther Bar?

Does anyone remember these Roy of the Rover bars or biscuits from Burtons, someones selling the wrappers on ebay for £9.99.

Good news! Look at page 7 of this week's Beano. Wham bars have been revived!
