do you remember th adverts for flake?? ohh and cardboard in bounties

curly wurlies are still around just very small compared to when I was little (or is it maybe that I ahve grown). they are still yummy tho.

No AAA twas in a plastic jar kinda spoils the effect doesnt it. Sure its still lurking at the back of the cupboard too as I dont like it any more.

A finger of fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat.
A finger of fudge is just enough until it's time to eat.
