Picnics still exist-at last in miniature heroes. Yep, remember Star bar
You can still get pear drops
As well as prawns there were those banana flavoured ones
You could get a mixed bag in my day for 5p(at least 15 sweets)

Sorry mate that sounds really rude!!
im new to this e mail game, and its hard to get the tone right
From the abuse i get when i go running, i didnt think that many ran in Wales.
The marathon was full of non welsh
best not to have marbles if you live in a country where there are 8 days in a week and there are funny words on the road signs
Half and half is a good welsh thing though

You used to get hard blue/purple sweets the size of rhubarb and custards called army & navy. I've searched for them for years, then this summer I was visiting the in-laws in York and found them - yippee what a blast from the past!!!

My mam had to ban me from eating sherbet fountains as I would suck the sherbet up through the straw and immediatley choke on the dust - every time I just wouldn't learn!
Also she told the man in the shop not to sell me bazooka joe's as i put loads in my mouth once then pulled it out in a really long string and wrapped it round my head.
- one skin head later the gum was removed, and I've never touched it since!

Did Revels become something else or can you still get them??

Loved Golden Cup!!!

I think you can still get Fry's but not by Fry's any more...

Anyone else noticed that Cadbury's have taken the nasty slithery coffee creams and strawberry creams out of the Roses selection? Unfortunately, they've also removed my favourites, Bournville miniatures.

I think Golden Cup got rebranded. Did it become Galaxy Caramel or am I mixing my multinationals?

I think revels are still around - I keep thinking of the advert on TV of the china mand and english man naming the flavours at the table, like playing Russian roulette (or that's what I thought it was like)

Revels are definitely still here - saw them in Sainsbury's just yesterday.
