Default Classic UK confectionary - what's your score?

A little (very little!) fun and nostalgia for a grey Thursday afternoon.

How many of these classic UK sweets have you eaten?

I scored 59. I hate Bounty bars and they don't mention a Lucky Bag for Girls. I remember having one of them but it was a bit rubbish.

Snickers is still Marathon in my mind too.

57! Starting to understand why that belt is getting tighter.

I do miss wine gums and midget gems over here though. When I go back to the UK I always come back with a few packs.

62 (Embarrassed smiley needed)

Only ones I didn't tick were Treats Milk Chocolate, Pop Rocks and Lucky Bags.

I even remember Super Mousse bars - showing my age now i guess - and waistline (before anyone else says it).

60, Agree Meow a Marathon will always be a marathon.

Think my score explains why I had to glue all my rear teeth together this year.

In the words of the immortal Millhouse: same same.

Crisps, on the other hand...it was pretty much the only thing I ever bought from the school tuck shop.
