it was in Tesco the other day
than the original...
(see also Wagon Wheels, Monster Munch)
and NO - it isn't because my hands have got bigger since being a child!
its ur hands
I could pretend I measured a wagon wheel's diameter in the 80s and compared it to one yesterday
...but I didn't :(
the wagonwheels are still big!
dark n light mars bars
I might be thinking of fruselis...
were sex in a sweet
Woolworths sell them
I sent an e-mail to Nestle and they said they had withdrawn them due to lack of demand.
This was in 2002
It must have only been about a year ago i got them. There was a big huge display stand so they may have relauched them or something
You're not thinking of Spangles?
I think Woolies relaunched them (some hard sweet from the 1970s)
Spangles were relaunched in the mid 90's when i was at college. They were bloody awful!
But I haven't seen them again since. :(
I want some.
off to woolworths i go!
Wispa Gold were lush!
Also, 'Secret' was great too
and I miss Tab Cola.
cadbury's bubble bar now?
I mean, erm, Marathons!?
Wispas are no cadbury bubbles!
Anyways where was i
Flipz! those chocolate coverd pretzels! now they were something to have an oral orgasm over!
Cybercandy in Covent Garden sell them although they are horribly overpriced now
when I was in New York
i may need to make a trip to Covent Garden
If you click the rocket on the logo, you can get into the secret shop too!
The username is 'secretshop' and the password is 'chico'
hahahaha! im gonna check that out
they were amazing! i became briefly obsessed with them. and the ice cream 'maxibon'.
I loved it so much..
When I was in Russia last summer, I was delighted to find them still on sale! I bought as many as I could convince my (russian speaking) girlfriend to get for me :)
although you can still get them in Somerfield or some such place.
had a gammon flavour c. 1985 ( a light green pack)
Can anyone confirm this was not a dream?
They need to bring back Roast Beef Wotsits
And do you recall the ice cream flavour Monster Munch?
they were fowl
who remembers green ketchup?
I remember the spaghetti sauce flavour (c. 1996)
Schweppes Cariba - like an imposter version of Lilt but well nicer.
the is a Cyber candy in brighton!
YES YES YES! lol i may pop down sometime XD
I think we should start a campaign to confuse the oiks who work there by asking for this drink in our 'meal deal'
If anybody can bring themselves to enter such an establishment that is...
is my absolutely favourite drink! thank god for A&W!!!!
I always thought they were awful n always cut my mouth on them
And they were always smashed up in the bag too :-(
They brought back the humble Lemonade Sparkle last year so keep yr fingers crossed
I was going to say that. They were delicious and only cost 12p or so.
Were ZZaps the toffee flavoured multicolour things. They were amazing too.
they got rid of them and just sold nerdz. Its not the same.
OMG! yes! OMG! i forgot all about those!
Coconut and Peanut Boosts (the latter being essentially a Star Bar)
Fish 'n chips
Pretzel Flipz seem to have a big enough fan base to pertition them back!
Lets all send emails to Nestle
add Vice Versas in the petition
one second whilst i image search!
better version of galaxys minsterals! yup yup
They were like minstrel shaped sweets, with milk chocolate shell and white chocolate centre..
in worcester sauce crisps?
the best flavour of deceased Chewits
banana were decent too. I think they even stopped Orange flavour despite being a core part of the Chewits range.
chew it chew it
I really wanna CHEWIT!
the green packet of Opal Fruits - they were tropical flavours!
Can you still buy multiflavour Toffo's?
I dont think u can, and yes I remember Opal Fruits before they turned into Starburts!
They changed the flavours and they went shit. Who wants a pineapple flavoured toffee anyway?!
ironically, i'd like to know :D
that joke is the lowest form of whitt! U LOOSE!
I don't care what people say, they didn't replace it! The new 'equivalent' looks nothing like it. The shape was almost as good as the taste.
How the fuck did it get taken off the shelves??
People say they still exist but it's a lie, a LIE!
some yesterday and get the chewy versions for free at Audio when u pay entry.... so clearly they do
I thought they were different manufacturers
So, my brothers flatmate was drunk one night and visited the cornerstore at the end of the road on his way home. Around 3 in the morning. He got hungry so decided to buy an entire boxs worth of tomato space raiders. Unfortunately there was no barcode on the box, so the guy behind the checkout asked him to reconsider. At which point said flatmate got tetchy and insisted that the cashier scan each individual packet by hand. Thus followed over 15 minuites worth of monotonous bleeping. The next morning he went and apologized handing the shops owner a tenner in compensation. They still have the receipt, which is over 30cm long.
My brother also once saw dylan moran in said cornershop.
Are Transform-a-snack a replacement for Space Raiders or a separate product?
you can still get both. Space raiders are still 10p
they were chewy
I remember some latticed crisps with a picture of a jester or clown on them, from when I was a kid
they were always mysterious and alluring to me then, cos they didn't sell them at my local shop, but people who went to my playschool got them. i remember the jealousy, and the time I pretended to have forgotten my crisps, so the teacher would pass round a cup which everyone would put one crisp into JUST so I could taste them...mmmm
I'd really like to have some, right now
both milk chocolate and white chocolate covered pretzels. They should definitely bring them back.
In the meantime I'm thinking of getting one of those big pretzels they sell at train stations and covering it in melted chocolate.
they do that all the time...
for the Flipz! THEY NEED TO BRING THEM BACK!
Also they wher fuge, not white chocolate :D
Bring them back with white chocolate as well then.
YAY! :D go Flipz!
I didnt like marbles, far too sickly :(
*crosses fingers for a relaunch within a year*
Opel Fruits (fuck starburst
