What about "Spanish Gold"? Supposed to look like tobacco in a packet.

Taken away because of passive chewing fears.

Riley's Toffee Rolls. Delicious dark chocolate over a scrumptious toffee. I think they were taken over by Callard and Bowser.

Had some Dracula lollies last year ....junior didn't like them ,which meant there was more for me.

my favourite lost food are Burton's Puffs (will Buttfair allow this word).

I bought a box of Rancheros ....for some reason they still exist in Ireland but not here.

there also used to be an ice lolly called 'the finger,' I used to feel embarassed actually asking for one..'have you got the finger, please?' doesn't sound quite right.

A couple more from the ice cream van man. Screwballs, ice cream with a chewing gumball at the bottom of the plastic cone. The other one was a favourite of mine, Oysters. Oyster shaped wafer, filled with ice cream and a chocolate covered coconut and marshmallow base. Chocolate flake and raspberry syrup were the extras of choice along with crushed nuts obviously.

I'm going back to the 70's B-B when I was a kid and what I can remember having. I haven't eaten a sweet or an ice cream for about 30 years so wouldn't know what is available now. Hope all is good with you by the way.

You can buy the " Oysters " in the supermarket then you just  need a tub of Ice cream to make your own.

Nothing like them! Treats were huge and of good quality. They m+m's are not in the same league!
