      Favourite Sweets - The False Teeth By The Time I'm 40 Thread
      Aug 14, 2008 07:04:20 pm
      Anyone else love sweets when they were little? I did, so thought it'd be funny to start a thread on it! :D

      Here are some of my favourite sweets from when I was a nipper, there's a link to a great site if anyone wants to add some of theirs! ;):

      http://www.retrosweetshampers.co.uk/sections/20/retro_sweets.html

      Double Dips - Two flavours of sherbert to eat with the Swizzlestick, if I remember correctly! :D



      Rainbow Crystals - more multi coloured sherbert delight!



      Candy Shrimps - Don't know why I loved them but I did! ;D



      ABC Letters - maybe my passion for reading came from eating so many of these?  :P

      I just love getting a big bag of pik 'n' mix, I get nearly every type of sweet there and end up spending about £13 but its worth it (although a lot of the sweets are big and make the bag weigh more so it should only be about £12.50 :D :D)

      One of my favourites was McGowans Highland Toffee it used to have a big scary hairy cow on the wrapper!





      i used to love all toffee even bon bons (but we wont go there!) and it never did me any harm.





      If I'm honest though id rather have a packet of pickled onion monster munch any day of the week. ;)

      I used to like those little white chocolate drops covered in hundreds and thousands, my Mum used to let me decorate cakes with them, I've still got a thing now about white chocolate, especially the white chocolate champagne truffles from Thorntons  ;)

      Yummy !

      Well, let's just say that Wham bars require some tolerance from the tastebuds.

      Used to love all the 1/2p & 1p sweet trays especially Refreshers. Christ they were really sour back then and my mouth is salivating just at the mere thought of those tooth rotters.

      Toffee wise it had to be those Bluebird Bullion bars. Guaranteed to rip yer fillings out.
