Retro Sweets, Chocolate and Crisps

Recommended Posts

So reading the forums about retro gaming and what games we used to play in our youth it got me thinking about what chocolate and sweets I used to eat as a kid. So here's a few to get started. What can you remember from the good old days? 😀

Yes i remember these being going since 1940s we had a corona factory nr us in Chesterton and was bombed in the war due to lights being left on in the factory.

There was a blue van that came around once a week and peep his horn and use to sell crisps, pop etc. Plus Alpine drinks

this is off a late 80's early  90's can as older ones had a slit either side of the tab bit and you could detach the tab abd place it in the slot and hey presto a Frisbee like toy

What about eating Chips out of newspaper with a wooden fork and trying to read the paper as your eating your chips. I always though they tasted nicer in newspaper.173697000_Chipsinnewspaper.jpg.bf260c27f8e0250cc0ecc46aa4f3a110.jpg401194040_Chipfork.thumb.jpg.b9594ba183a4a365dd6a574dffdeb86e.jpg

Ya haven't seen those letters for ages, Am sure at some point we would of got round to these but so many memory's of are younger days. Its nice that we have such retro sweets shops about to remind us of are younger life, plus i like taking the two little ones in to show them what daddy grown up with, but the prices😮 robbery if ever i saw it

Mouthful of skittles :) , only good thing about having kids , endless sugar. I find Haribo have kinda ruined sweets , trust me , ive tried them all . I remember when cola bottles tasted awsome , if you ate too many , ya mouth bled . the haribo cola bottle is tepid , they pack them in plastic wrap , with other flavour sweets !!! , they all taste the same . Need to have jars , dont mix the flavours , because bottom of the jar , cola bottles from the 1990 OMG , pile that sugar on , use it like a spoon :)
