Default Favourite sweets from your childhood years

Following on from Hutchy's drinks thread, what was your favourite sweet(s) from your childhood years.

Mine has got to be 'Texan Bars'

"A mans gotta chew what a mans gotta chew"!

Couldn't say that in an advert nowadays!!

Space dust was ace, wasn't it.
Sherbet dips and Flying saucers I've had recently from one of the English sweet shops here - they were just as good as I remember!

Spangles anyone??
