Golden cup - one of my favourites - so sweet it used to hurt my teeth - but, could do with one now - I know it has been rebranded but not sure what

Do you still get juicy fruit chewing gum?

Condensed milk - you can still get it, but I can no longer eat it by the tin.
Like Wagon wheels, tastes devne but makes me chuck.

You get a low calorie version of condensed milk in Sainsbury's but it's awful - to really appreciate it you need the real full fat mega calorie stuff.

I was craving fruit and nut bars this morning but that's been overtaken by condensed milk...."must not go by the shop on the way home must not go by the shop on the way home"

silly question: you get fruit and nut, you get whole nut but why don't you get whole fruit? (I know you get choccy raisins but they're a poor substitute to a chunky bar of chocolate) - I reckon I could quit my job and "invent" whole fruit and hopefully retire on the profits - retiring at 25, now that would be good!!!

is space dust the same as popping candy?

Pink Panthers were like magical dream bars - fantastic idea, but coated your teeth with god knows what and always left you feeling a bit sicky.
anyone in yorkshire got info on roocrofts nut milk squares? - bought once on a trip to sylvia plaths grave and never matched.

Gillian, fantastic idea, the nuts are always a let down, but the fruit!!!!! mmmmm. I love yoghurt coated raisins from Holland and Barrett as i can kid myself they're good for you, but a bar of whole fruit WoW.

Gillian can you really resist the call of the Fussells?

Well Tim, that beats my sweets from Yorkshire.

I should have known better that to get involved in a discussion about sweets - I'm starving now!!!
Anyway I'm going to be good - finish work at 4 and go for a quick run and hopefully be home by 5 (before all the tea time traffic starts along with the beeps, whistles and general abuse) afterwards we're having a chinese carry out - fat and health wise is chicken satay acceptable ?ideally I'd love sweet & sour but the batter and frying part frightens me too much)Back to the topic - what about chicklets - chewing gum from Spain/Portugal.

Answer the question Gills
Can you resist the Fussells pull?

Bet you can't

Barkles I'm going to try - although I've got this scarey feeling that I might end up in the ASDA down the road (which opens 24 hours) in the middle of the night frantically filling my basket with tins an tins of the stuff. - at least I'll know who to blame ............
why is it you never crave the stuff that's good for you - i.e how many people have you met who "must have" an apple?

Sad to say I'm getting that way with bananas.
