Do you remember Spangles? What flavour were the brown ones? They tasted like cough mixture.

I used to like Space Dust and some other sugar stuff, might have been Rainbow something. I also used to love a chocolate bar called I think Cabana, it was coconut with a caramel topping. It had cherries in it too and was covered in chocolate, it was gorgeous but no one I know remembers it.

ooh yes I loved blackjacks, and still do.

I loved rowntrees fruit gums when they were still hard and got stuck in your teeth, they were my sisters pregnancy craving too!
I also used to love cherry lips, the tiny hard floral ones

And rhubarb and custards
