Drifters (not seen one for about 5 years)
mentioned Banana Bubbles in another thread.
Mighty White Bread.
one of them tasted like petrol so that's why they got rid obviously
Is liptonice still about?
is alive and well in Spain.
The clear version I had nay heard of.
Did you lovely people get TANG over here? 70s powdery orange drink which is probably carcenogenic?
it was awful...
wispas have disappeared though, to my dismay.
WAS A WORK OF PURE GENIUS~!
was the daddy. Caramel, little balls of biscuit, velvety-smooth chocolate: bite had it all. So long, little buddy. You are missed.
no Wispas?? Are you serious?
They've gone too!
Or the tube of coloured sweets?
I seem to remember eating both recently...
became the dairy milk with bubbles THING.
And not as big.
they were my favourite when i was young. Why wasn't i consulted?!
although the diary milk with orange stuff ones are ACE.
Shit, Whispa's were one of the nicest :(
C & A
chocolate pretzels, am gutted :(
They were amazing!
But no one liked them. :(
What about those cake bears with yoghurt inside? Where they called Yum Tums or somethin?
but those pretzels were amazing and whoever made them had guts and vision. and presumably they are now languishing in a ditch somewhere due to the unadventurousness of the british palate. :-(
didn't they?!? Everyone I knew did, they were fab. I'm sad they've gone :(
hedgehog flavoured crisps
isn't really a product is it? But since we're talking about that...
you can't buy that any more can you?
and Disco hoop crisps
are Trio still on sale?
when you donate blood.
back to food!
They've like totally gone bust innit?
But no i'm certain all:sports have gone bust. All the shops up here have closed and they're no longer sponsoring Charlton Athletic...
It looks as though they've been bought out by JD Sports.
get Jolly Ranchers in the Australian shop near Covent Garden (or at least you could about a year ago).
It's hard to find Wham bars these days. They were damn good!
I truly love international marketing for this very reason......
is cellotape in Australia
Durex is a brand of condomi..
He did a sketch about it.
"An Australian walks into a shop in London and asks for a roll of Durex, giant size."
they were great.
come to think of it i havnt seen a can of irn-bru for a long while either.
19p heaven that was
You can get Irn Bru anywhere...
or are they called toffee fredo's or something?
for once. The Taz, presumably reconsidered as a waste of a tie-in with Warner Brothers, has been replaced by the Freddo, available in solid Dairy Milk or with a caramel centre. Not bad for 10p...
one thing you can't get any more is a 16p Milky Way! I know! Scandalous! It's leapt from 16p to a whopping EIGHTEEN PENCE! Someone at Mars is being extremely stingy.
that's why they went
no longer with us :(
It's Happy Eaters which are no more.
My life was ruined when they went.
we might get free stuff.
as I don't think they're gonna give you much else.
but they might say "no sorry we're not going to make them again but have some of our other chocolatey goodness as compensation" or words to that effect.
all they got was an apology for not telling anyone and said 'we hope you enjoy all new Dairy Milk Bubbly.'
THE LOT OF 'EM
but i know someone who complained to Pringles that the tubes don't actually pop (as in "once you pop you can't stop) and they sent him a load of vouchers for free pringles
about their list of reasons demanding a comprehensive list and they wrote back telling me there is no list and that was that.
that's false advertising.
to say that they really liked kettle chips and they got loads.
Then the same person wrote to lush (the shop) and said they liked their products but couldn't afford them although they fully intended to buy them when she left uni and got a job. She got loads of lush stuff.
They have delisted them!! Years ago apparently! Bastards.
I've requested they reinstate them for Woolies as an exclusive. Apparently there's a dairy milk bubbles or something that was supposed to take it's place but that's shit. It's small.
Everyone'smissing these Wispas!
Pointing out incorrect punctuation on one of their adverts - never heard anything from them, but haven't seen the offending advert since.
has someone already said that?
They've just brought outhe Diet edition...
*holding can of cherry coke*
uh that's still around...
jinxmaster james from now on
i have a canadian friend who brings us over supplies of lucky charms and mountain dew! apparently they don't sell lucky charms here any more because of the high levels of sugar and e-numbers involved.
also... www.hello-sweetie.com for all your retro sweets/wham bar needs!
it's potent syrupy booze that you had to drink when you were 15 and wanted to get drunk outside the shop.
It made me puke quite a lot.
That's Mad Dog, nope the 15 year old's still buy that stuff.
Zoom bars (the ones they pulled out of distribution because they realised the yoghurt centre was prone to developing mold)
can't get that no more. Not that you'd want to
what about that?
What about wagon wheels?!
I hate white lightning, not as much as I hate wagon wheels though.
I don't really shop anymore it seems.. no packed lunches and I drink Strongbow..
hooch on tap in my uni 1st year halls was a special time of my life. turbo shandies for not many pounds at all, get rather drunk & do silly things. :)
MD 2020? The next step up was WD 40 wasn't it?
and Enigma, the lager Guiness brought out
We got those in Oz...
drinks plenty of that.
the other night.
You can still get Mad Dog 20/20.
Picked some up the other day for a teenage whim. Mmmm. Disgusting.
Kiwi and Lime i think it was, along with the disgusting strawberry one
I scored with a very nice lady indeed at a party when I was 16 who was drinking that. Ah, memories.
alphabites still exist?
I got smacked for writing rude things with them when I was little.
The smiley face ones also still exist.
Anyone remember those Pizza Rollers? They got so hot inside I think quite a few people burnt themselves, hence them being withdrawn. (I think)
is that taking advantage?!
that's a product that never should have existed in the first place
a bit bland...
they were beautiful
or at least they do in my local kwik save
They were amazing...
regular boiled sweets though
Romero and Sky ones.
Cabanan, Texans and PLEASE BRING BACK brown Milky Ways!!!!
*most of you will be too young to remember half of these.
with brown stuff in the middle
same as the fudgy bit of a Mars only lighter.
They were MUCH nicer than the current WHITE one.
same as the whispa thing.
wild life bars no longer exist.
the other type are disgusting. Stupid white fluffy crap.
they shouldnt but they do.
same as snickers.
but then came back.
I think Toffee Crisps did the same
Is probably the foulest thing one could ever drink but I must admit...... I love it. It's good at getting you fucked up and cheap too.
it was ace. And you'd get green sick.
someone I was with ate one last night. LIONBARFACT.
green sick as if it's a good thing!
I drank Scrumpy when I was 15.
its actually quite nice.
i thought small pox was making a comeback? or was that the black death?
No, that was Megadeth
which killed millions in early 20th century. But then it was called Spanish Flu.
The Spanish were less than happy.
should join this list if theres any justice
if ya know what i mean?!
cadbury are bastards. wispa was what made them. Now they just have shitty variations on Diary Milk that all taste the bloody SAME! WISPA MINTS NEED TO BE BROUGHT BACK!!!!
my favourite chocolate bar too. How can they have got rid of them when they seem to have been so popular. You people were obviously not eating enough of them!!
and FIZZY JERKS
i doubt anything even remotely natural ever went near the factory they were made in ... but they were bloody good
can still get these...or at least i bought a pack a few weeks ago. yum.
Which, quite cunningly, led us to remember the product (even to this day)
They tasted like shit though
In response to Reisen Chocolate Chew
I swear the same people were responsible for the early Bounty kitchen roll ads
The Chocolate Chew!
Sorry, I've just been reading a Renaissance novel and I've been sort of infected...
I don't think so... I was covered in suppurating sores before I started reading the book...
noticed that like all of the chocalatey goodness ones are all the fault of dairy 'fucking' milk?
you can still get cadburys spira. my brother sells them in his shop, they're the best things ever.
mmm, spirally chocolate goodness.
but you're all absolute bastards, i really want a whispa now and i can't have one!
Did anybody ever actually get one of these? It was always one of those inpractical gifts on my christmas list that my mum chose to ignore
Every year I asked for that icy bastard. And every christmas morning, rejection
he was the most popular kid in the street during summer
That should've been ME
someone reviewed it!
Ricicles with the sweets in.
and the Jagged Glass department at Fisher Price, that didn't last long
