Take a stroll down memory lane and see if you remember these (midget) gems….
Remember halfpenny and penny sweets temptingly displayed in plastic trays behind the glass counter of the corner shop? The serious dilemma of what to buy with your pocket money on a Saturday morning…
We’ve been reminiscing about our favourite sweets of the 70’s, here’s some that we loved – we hope you did too!
These delicious packs of toffees came in plain toffee, assorted fruit and mint flavours
The original penny chews were simply irresistible!
Sherbet Fountain (Barratts)
A treat that seemed to last for ages – had to be careful not to eat the liquorice stick too quickly though or you’d almost choke on the sherbet…
Tooty Frooties (Rowntrees)
The multi-coloured fruity sweets to make your eyes water
The perfect afterschool treat for every white chocolate lover
Anglo Bubbly Bubble gum (Barratt)
It had the original bubble gum smell! Most kids of the 70’s perfected their bubble-blowing skills with this long-lasting gum
Galaxy Counters (Galaxy)
We miss these – there were four animal packs to collect and send away for different books!
Spangles (Mars Ltd)
A pack of square boiled sweets in a variety of flavours – they made a brief comeback in the 90’s and were stocked in Woolworths
Topic (Mars Ltd)
What has a hazelnut in every bite? For nut lovers – made with tasty hazelnuts, nougat and caramel
