Caramacs were great (and another vote for Aztec Bars).

Wasn't there also a chocolate bar called Bar 8, or something similar?

Oh yes pacers white chews with green stripes through them a bit like opal fruits but minty. Does anyone remember floral gums they were tiny midget gems that tasted of perfume.

Floral gums were as horrible as parma violets.

I never really liked sweets, I was more of a Bovril crisp sort of kid.

Parma violets  who would voluntarily eat something that tasted like that?

I think it was called Bar 6 -

As far as favourite sweets  I think it must be sherbert pips.

Yeah, didn't it come on tap?  I was on it around 1972/3 I think.

Another vote for Caramacs, and Pink Panther bars!

What was the name of the bubble gum which had a tattoo transfer inside the wrapper?

Bazooka Joes!

Oh yes, you could save up the cartoons to claim gifts, such as a submarine - I kid you not.


Mind, you'd have had to eat a jungle-worth of gum to get one..

I remember sweet tobacco well, also myself & my brothers used to buy sweet cigarettes & pretend to smoke - not very PC these days haha! I also shamefully admit to feeding our dog some space dust & laughing at him when it started popping. In my defence I was very young & stupid.

Anyone remember the packs of American Civil War cards with sticks of bubble gum in?
