to be eating pickled onion monster munch at 35?

(70 Posts)

so my mum and I have this discussion going on.
I love mm,skips,flumps,flying saucers etc.
basically all the treats I liked when I was a kid but mother thinks it looks uncivilised for a grown woman to be eating these sorts of things.
she says I should have evolved to kettle chips,plain tortillas and thornton choccies.
I think bollocks.
so what do you all think?
and do any of you still happily consume'childish'snacks?
what is your favourite?

Bleeeurgh, YAB quite U because these horrible chunks of damp polystyrene are quite indelible.

Bring back pickled onion Discos, Phileas Fogg Californian Corn Chips and Mignons Morceaux. Yum.

Combine them with Haribo if you need to. That'd be a party in your mouth!

YANBU.

My sister is 39 and she'll do anything for a pack of flying saucers.

I also love pickled onion monster munch but am not yet in my 30s!

Uncivilised grin

My grandad thinks it's uncivilised to drink out of cans. He was scandalised when I politely refused his offer of a glass.

I am currently eating Nice N Spicy nik naks.

I love pickled onion monster munch. They're my number 1 pregnancy craving at the moment. I also like the Thorntons mini brownies at the moment too.

Just eat what you like. I still like fruit salads, black jacks and skittles.

I like spicy transformer snacks at the mo.

And pink foam shrimps.

You have my heart OP. I buy a six pack and eat in the car. I keep them in the glove box blush

I love all crisps but tend to eat the ultra yummy ones (MM, Skips, Space Invaders etc) in private grin.

Yanbu, I love pickled onion monster munch and I am nearly 51. But have you tried the flamin' hot flavour? They are awesome.

Bearbehind Wed 03-Jul-13 19:34:27

I'm 38 and I'm with you- i love retro sweets and pickled onion monster munch!

ipswichwitch Wed 03-Jul-13 19:25:01

No freudian, they don't make trios anymore (sob!)

I am partial to a cheese and nice n spicy nik nak sandwich.

you can still get fizz bombs I think.
didn't they come individualy wrapped but in rows and you just tore off the amount you wanted?

Tailtwister Wed 03-Jul-13 08:36:55

Does anyone remember sweets called fizz bombs? They were my favourite, but I've never seen them around since.

Pickled onion monster munch...yum.

YAB ridiculous to think that there is a link between age and reasonableness and your choice of snack.
