    They’re not, they sell them in ASDA / Tesco.

    Tutti Fruttis are still about. Rowentrees also do a pick and mix bag of Tutti Fruttis, Fruit Pastels and Fruit Gums – totally disastrous to try and eat though, completely the wrong mix of textures. I guess rowntrees don’t have sufficient financial muscle to buy shelf space in the main supermarkets anymore but B&M stock them.

    Was trying to explain to my 11yr old son this morning you could buy 1/2p sweets, black jacks etc. that’s 20 for 10p!

    Nuttals Mintoes. I made one last from our workshop in Durham all the way to Gateshead (to the Liner Concrete factory) & back to Birtley before it was gone.

    For anyone in or near South Manchester – have a look in Bittersweet in Chorlton. I can promise you won’t be able to walk out empty handed!

    Blackjack or fruit salad

    I can remember when it was 3 for a penny on both these. I always used to mix them.

    Refreshers changed a couple of years ago. They got rid of all the artificial tasty stuff, e-numbers and the like and left a completely boring sweet. Used to be that 2 packs and I’d be bouncing off the walls. Sadly not any more!

    Same with me… 2 tubes of smarties back in the day and I was unstoppable… then an asthmatic wreck for the next 2 days. A childhood bereft of all the best sweets and orange/lemon squash so I would be able to sit still for more than a millisecond!

    Space Dust ftw

    Parma Violets ftl

    And crisps that were all in the right colour packets. 7p a pack for Golden Wonder, 5p pack for onion rings and cheesy puffs, and still enough change from 10p pocket money to buy quite a few Mojos and Rhubarb+Custards.

    Hi folks, I can remember fruit salad and blackjacks at 4 for 1d, ie 24 for 2.1/2p Proper wagon wheels(at least twice the size they are now)
    Ditto Curly wurlies. gobstoppers and a sort of hard Chalk type lolly thing that probably wasn’t far off being just that, didn’t taste of much if memory is correct. Also got through loads of Victory Vs, Licquorice imps and god only knows what else.
    Probably why I aint got no teef left
    Still, happy memories. Oh nearly forgot Walls ice cream used to come as a paper wrapped little block to be inserted into its rectangular cone or between two wafers.
    Bliss…. πŸ™‚

    I remember being in Infant 1. Beef XL crisps were 21/2p. Circa 1973.

    Kola Kubes ftw

    Lost a filling to a Drumstick lolly too.
