Ooh yes TDP, pyramint?

AlmightyCitrus · 11/04/2011 20:28

Dunoon - My local Heron foods has Supermousse. They are in packs of 4, 2 for a £1. DS loves them!

mydaddrivesarustycar - Hmmm, I thought that too. In fact, I had a load of trouble just finding a decent mineral powder. I can't use "wet" foundation. The powder was the first time I ever felt happy with my make up.

I absolutely love Nina Ricci, Liberty Fizz (the one in the green bottle). Seems that's gone now. Sad

AuntieMaggie · 11/04/2011 20:40

I clicked on this thinking you were talking about the game Blush

Fish and chips in newspaper

I also loved Venezia perfume (thought I saw it a year or so ago somewhere random... though may just be dreaming)

Sure I'll remember more...

Ragwort · 11/04/2011 20:41

Auntie we can get fish and chips in newspaper - only the Torygraph though Wink.

Dunoon · 11/04/2011 20:42

cheese and pickle quiche - boak!

No Heron foods around here for supermousse unfortunately AC.

separated · 11/04/2011 20:42

Can you still get Um Bongo?

Walkers used to do two normal sized packets of poppodum crisps. Probably early 90s. They were delicious.

sharbie · 11/04/2011 20:47

twas yum dunoon - you heated it up and it went all melty

sharbie · 11/04/2011 20:48

Estee Lauder - 100% Time release cream. It was the only cream that sorted out my dry skin.

Bodyshop Ananya - in any form, lotion, soap, bath foam. It smelt divine.

1980's Slush Puppies (not the synthetic Slush Puppie pretender you get now) - Loads of flavours, Raspberry was sheer heaven. I got through bucket loads of the stuff on holiday in Mevagissy.

KenDoddsDadsDog · 11/04/2011 21:00

Cherry slush puppy! Divine!

FudgeGirl · 11/04/2011 21:10

Boots Marshmallow shampoo and conditioner.

Cadbury's Spira. No other Cadbury's chocolate tastes quite the same.

Walnut whips, when they tasted nice. Now they are filled with nasty, cheapo foam, not cream, and topped with yakky chocolate and a nasty, bitter nubbin of a walnut.

DP says coconut tobacco from the corner shop, anyone remember that?

Peach barcardi breezer (from when I was a teenager)

Bananabix (why did they introduce chocolate weetabix but discontinue the banana one?)

Sizzle and stir tikka massala sauce, which had a small jar of paste that you cooked the chicken in first, before adding the proper jar of sauce.

onestepforward · 11/04/2011 21:28

Some of these have been mentioned... toffee and mallow eggs (really, really miss them), hubbly bubbly limeade, sheer blone chunky funky (or something!) styling gel, some square shape caramel flavour biscuits (from the 70s/early 80s that my Grandma always had)

spiderlight · 11/04/2011 21:37

FudgeGirl, M&S do a walnut whip clone that tastes nearly as good as proper walnut whips used to.

Ah, Secret bars....that's brought back lovely memories of my mum 'hiding' them in the top drawer of the unit because she knew it was the first place I'd look if I had the munchies.

Pyramints were fabulous. As were blue Slush Puppies - my friend and I used to buy a huge one of those each and lace them liberally with Malibu :o

foxinthewoods · 11/04/2011 21:39

lime barrels from milk tray

mint cracknell !!! oooh

Woodleigh green apple shampoo

Vidal Sasson - Almondy shampoo & conditioner in brown bottle

potato puffs, used be be 10p for years but havent seen them for a while

ballstoit · 11/04/2011 21:45

Herbal Essences Shampoo, the green coloured clear one, smelled luverly. Not the same in the new bottle. Never will my hair smell like a spring meadow again Sad

NotJustKangaskhan · 11/04/2011 21:47

I can't remember the brand, but there was this lovely fridge pizza dough that was wonderful for those really busy days - just rolled it out from the fridge and customize pizza in minutes, and it was wonderful tasting. Nothing since has been even close.

peeriebear · 11/04/2011 21:48

Pig puffs/piglets, hollow vaguely pig shaped crisps, baked bean flavour.
Original Milky Ways which had a light brown middle, not white.
I just discovered last week on my trip to buy Matey (yes, I went to a specific shop!) that they have changed the smell along with the bottle :( instead of the lovely old smell it now smells really sickly like sweets, I could have wept!!
