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?

I'm with you on this one. I love flying saucers especially, and also enjoy Monster Munch (although prefer beef to pickled onion).

Kettle Chips are nice too.

Thorntons chocolates on the other hand are often disappointing.

If it's wrong then I don't want to be right.

I LOVE a good corn snacky crisp and sweets.

I love mm!
Also anything sour or fizzy smile

Beef Monster Munch are much tastier than pickled onion. Love Frazzles.

Plain tortilla chips are boring.


Quite like vegetable crisps though.

Hate thorntons chocolates and tortilla chips.

I eat more than regularly skips, quavers, chocolate licco, revels and those mint cream poppets

Past the age of 34 it is completely unreasonable.

Pickled onion monster munch are the best crisps ever. And I have 10 years on you.

Tell your mum to mind her own grin

But they aren't as big and uncomfortable to eat as they were, back in the day.

(when I turn 35 in Sept I may review my MM/flump stance)

Is that because we are bigger now Yoni? They still look big when my DCs eat them ha ha

Nik nak sandwich on buttered White bread with a sweet & sour pot noodle

Food of the gods

im with you there crows.
cant get enough of fizzy and sour(fizzy cherries!)
probably not the best nutritional choice at 19 week pregnant.

YANBU. If I had access to pickled onion MM I'd be eating a packet right now. As it is, I had a tube of some sort of S+V crisps, a tin of tuna and mayo and sweetcorn, a packet of shortbread fingers and a litre of water for my lunch.
I think I've got shingles so the water was for health reasons!

You can eat anything you like when you're pregnant. Just call it a craving wink

Light weight.

I ate a whole jar of pickled onions and drank the vinegar yesterday!!

Thorntons chocolates are minging however old you are. Your mum IBU.

I like wine gums, Matchmakers, skips and chocolate fingers.

urtwistingmymelonman Wed 03-Jul-13 07:38:45

I could happily eat a pickled egg and cheese and onion crisps right now goddamit!
I feel a trip to tescos after work coming on.

happylass Wed 03-Jul-13 07:39:56

LOVE Pickled Onion Monster Munch and I too am 35. YANBU.

(Think Norn Irish pronunciation)
Eat what you want!

YANBU at all. One of the nicest things to eat ever is a stottie cake and pickled onion Monster Munch sandwiches.

I can only have then occasionally due to living in the SE but when relatives come down from the NE bringing the stottie, I have one then. Bliss.

Thorntons chocolate is not nice at all.

Yabu to not be eating the flamin hot mm instead! Ha they are my favourite smile along with skips, wotsits, space raiders and tomato snaps, mmmm. I also love a sherbert fountain...
Thorntons chocs are gross! Ive only ever liked the thorntons buttons you get in glass jars, everything else is bleurgh.
Think childish tastes run in my family though, my dad is late fifties and still 'treats' himself to jelly worms and bonbons, and my mum would eat milky bar buttons all day long!

went to rye on sunday and they have all these traditional sweet shops there.
was in seventh heaven.
