Clove sweets. Gobstoppers. Pineapple chunks (I was a retro kid). Sherbet dip. Polo mints. Silvermints (great ads). Tayto salt'n'vinegar. Kimberley, Mikado and Coconut creams (Kims were best).
Remember when you were a kid and you went to an old dear's house and she produced the 'Nice' biscuits? You scoffed them but you couldn't thinking 'how cheap is that!'.
Fizzbombs. HB Twisters. (The rich posh show-off kids at school would make a big deal out of the fact that they had Cornettos.)
Jelly babies were over-rated. they belonged to a category of sweets whose merits depended very much on the colour of the sweet in question.
Colleen sweets at Christmas: another 'old dear' speciality. Only when the other sweets were eaten would you be reduced to chawing the colleens. And those horrible dark chocolate things - 'Black Magic'.
Then there was the Milky Bar and the Milky Bar kid - the world's most anodyne role model.
99's (e-coli how are ya?)
Rice Krispie buns at birthday parties. Jumpers for goalposts, etc.
Monster Munches - a great advancement in corn snack design. I had personal tragedy in connection with them when I was twelve. I was wrongly accused of shoplifting a packet in the supermarket in Tuam and the owner led me back to the shop and threatened to call the guards. When the girl at the counter confirmed that I ad paid for the goodies, I was released. But the trauma of the event put me off Monster Munches for years. I, too, have my scars.
