Also apple stroodles, in a packet shaped like an apple?

I have never met anyone who remembers the aztec bar though, can anyone tell me I'm not mad?
Its all right, I am mad.
I found this link http://www.aquarterof.co.uk/acatalog/whatever.html
which shows an aztec bar, buts its not what I thought it was although i do remember it now. I now think the thing I am thinking of was called a super moose.
Actually, I am going to go away and have a long talk to myself about how sad am I, and have I got nothing better to do an a sunday afternoon.

Ok, I am that sad B$%^&d, I just couldn't let it go. For any other babyboomers out there who are feeling reminiscent heres a good link http://tv.cream.org/ Check out the 'best before' link for a ot of old memories.
This mentions the stroodles, but nothing about supermoose, although I did see someone on a forum elsewhere who remembered them when looking for this link.

Next thing, one of these cans of juice used to be really really fizzy (Painfully so), so much that it almost disappeared in your mouth if you held it there. I think it was fresca, can anyone else remember?

The sweet cigarettes are called candy sticks now, the kids love 'em. They'll be on 40 Capstan Full Strength a day in no time.

Mine used to be Glees. They were purple chewy sweets, really scrummy but no-one seems to remember them (mind you this was back in the 60s/70s).

Sherbet dips - I used to chuck the liquorice away (yuk!) and put the sherbet in a glass, add water and get a fizzy drink.....!

Bar 6

Fry's chocolate creams (but the different flavoured segments, not mint)

Double Deckers

Yummy......

This thread made me take a trip to the "English" shop in Glenelg.
They had those Pez thingys there.. remember them? little rectangular packs and you put them into a plastic toy thing to dispense them?

I bought some Bassetts black jack chews, pear drops, aniseed twists, sherbet fountain (a tube of sherbert with a licorice stick to suck it up with!!)

Thats the diet out the window for this week

Originally posted by Soapy ages ago.

Mr.Cadbury and Ms Rowntree met on a coach journey. It was After Eight.
She was from Quality Street; he was a Fisherman's Friend.
On the way they stopped at a Yorkie Bar, he had a Rum & Butter and she had a
Wine Gum.
He asked her name. "Polo, I'm the one with the hole", she said.
"I'm the one with the Nuts", he thought. Then he touched her Milky Way.
They checked in and went straight to the bedroom.
Mr Cadbury turned out the light for a bit of Black Magic.
It wasn't long before he slipped his hand into her Snickers and felt the contrast of her Double Decker.
Then he showed her his Curly Wurly.
Ms Rowntree wasn't keen to have any more Jelly Babies, so she let
Him take a trip down Bourneville Boulevard.
He was pleased as he always fancied a bit of Fudge.
It was a Magic Moment as she let out a scream of Turkish Delight.
When he came out his Fun Sized Mars Bar felt a bit Crunchie.
She wanted more but he decided to take Time Out.
However, he noticed her Pink Wafers looked very appetising...So he did a Twirl, had a Picnic in her Sherbert and gave her a Gob Stopper.
Unfortunately Mr Cadbury then had to go home to his wife, Caramel.
Sadly, he was soon to discover he had caught V.D.
It turns out Ms Rowntree had been with All Sorts

You can get Pez in Kmart & Woolworths, I buy them occasionally for the boys (they just like the dispensers ). Can also buy pear drops in a few places here in Brisbane (one in Capalaba).

I remember Fry's Chocolate Cream here in Australia (the different flavoured ones), I think you can still get the peppermint ones?

Licorice flyers - the licorice is sealed at one end and a stopper of candy at the other end?

I love the red ones but not found anywhere that sells them here in Adelaide - can anyone help me out?

Liquorice root was one of my sister's favourites...

Oooh yes Dark Secrets from Bejam, little ice cream chocolates, they were gorgeous!

That really takes me back Boomie
