- And the best children’s* sweeties are…
Refreshers are definitely up there, also I used to love a Liquorice Toffee sweet to as a kid, but can’t remember the brand or name. Still partial to Parma Violets even now. Grew up near the Swizzles factory so they’ll always be firm favourites. But also used to love these, though technically might not be categorised as sweeties….

– The chewy kind of Rhubarb and Custards – bit like a Fruit Salad…
Yeah, that. Even had their own theme tune – diddly dow, diddly dow, diddly dow-de-dow
Best lost adult sweet was the Cabana bar 🙁
Best current adult sweet is Riesen
I don’t eat sweets any more, now I’m on the type2 naughty step 🙁 🙁 🙁Posted 7 months agoGolfChickMember
A bag of tesco sherbert lemons got me to the Lake District and back last weekend, I’m now going to buy some proper old sweets online! I remember every November time I used to love a bonfire toffee lolly that used to get sold at a local shop, it was immense. Looooove parma violets, have a packet in my cupboard and with the added beenfit that nobody else in the house likes them means they’ve been there for a week or two now!

Yeah those nasty choc paper cigarettes which you could exhale through and sugar type flour mix would gove that smoke effect.
Used to buy them from baker’s round the corner when I was like 7 yrs. took me another year to have my first puff on a real one that another kid nicked a pack of b&h gold from his father.
Got caught by a bobby and frogmarched home.
Which proves smoking is not cool nor cleverPosted 7 months ago
