You still get the peppermint cream one 

It also reminds me of the poor man's Frys Chocolate Cream the ice cream van sold - I think it was called MB bar. Chocolate that you couldn't get to melt and fondant filling that was pure sugar. Cheap as chips though.

I think if you go back far enough, sweets, like jams, like bakery (& most foods in fact) were the real deal ... Then (imo) it all turned around.

"Add the extra salt & sugar & colouring & most, will no ken what they are eating".. Frys (again only my opinion) Gie them awe different colours,

And then pretend each square has a unique fruity flavour...I am at a total loss as to what chemicals are now going in to todays food stuff  :(

Oor Mary on the Forum here, has the right idea. Quality, Healthy, Tasty, Home Made, Family Food. Getting the best at half the Price in Shops.

It's a pity Mary, that the burnt tablet/candy pots, trebles the price o' each item Keep up the guid work cuddles & sending challenging recipes :wub:

OK, I'll lower the tone, another thing you don't get anymore is stashes of 'gentleman's entertainment' magazines hidden in bushes. You knew it was going to be a good day when you found a wad of old Razzles on the way to school. 😁

When I was a young lad I didnt know that an Escort and a Fiesta were also a kind of car.

You still get orange, peppermint, chocolate and raspberry. 

The orange is beautiful. The raspberry is like licking a square battery.

Obviously missing the raspberry which I've only seen sold in singles. I get 3 bars  of orange for the handsome sum of £1 from Home Bargains. 

Everybody has licked a square battery! Some learnt after one lesson, some went back for seconds..

Darned socks; Sown up Cuffs & Troosers; Worn Oot Collars (threed picked oot & turned roond)

Cobblers tae re-heel & sole & replenish tackity boots; Wellies ta go tae skale in; Paddy Markets that selt, re' cycled specs & bunches o thon big, lumpy metal, door  keys ... Also a section that selt refurbished wifie's bloomers & men's long johns, wi the rotten, disintegrating "yella-stained "gussets (sold as seen, & no returns) ... Although some desperate vendors allowed the potential buyers to try them on before committing themselves to making a purchase ... (The changing rooms were ahent the stalls, where these potentential buyers were exposed to public gaze & the weather elements)

Jings even the mis-matched, mis-fitting "hand me downs" went oot o' fashion. When on the very rare time, some new troosers or suchlike were bought new, it was guaranteed it wid be at least twa sizes too big ... On the promise, that ..."You widnae be lang in growing intae them:chaplin:

When the New Home Catalogues came along, which allowed the opportunity to pay stuff over a whole year, the door was opened for many poor families :happyyes:

Mither, faither, uncles, aunties, & auld granny, spent ages over the fashionable new clothes & household section. Eh went straight fit the Underwear Section:excited:

In later life, eh used tae tramp 'roond the countryside for the Bundles of Porn Mags that Chomp & others referred to...(But eh guess they got in there first) :bye:

I can't believe I'm the only one who immediately thought 'sex' as soon as they saw the thread title.

Sex is what teauchters put tatties in 🤣

My mind is now blown with this information - I guess you could make your own 5 centres from those flavours!
