    DO YOU REMEMBER ANY SWEETS YOU USED TO EAT WHEN YOU WERE LITTLE BUT ARE NO LONGER MADE??

    When I was little we used to get sweeties called spangles; prize bars; texan bars and football chews. And snickers used to be called marathon. Shame they don't make them any more !!

    Jolly Rancher has individually wrapped hard candies now, but used to make a long, flat hard candy called Fire Stix that was a favorite of mine. 

    MOJO's candy. (white chewey mints )  3 for 1cent.  That's all I could afford back then.

    Very tasty, if my memory is correct, and quite famous in the UK, not bad for a wee town like ours.

    Super Bubble bubble gum, Green Apple Flavour. We lived  a couple of  blocks away from the neighbourhood general store where the green apple gum was sold for two cents per piece in the 1970's. My grandmother used to give my uncles and aunts and  I money  and then send us to the store to buy candy so she could  have a few minutes of peace and quiet, but when I would come home chewing green apple gum she would make me throw it in the trash because she could not stand the smell. Those were the good old days, I think. LOL
