What Sweets or Food Takes You Back to When You Were a Kid?

Ask a Question

Someone just posted an offer about black jacks and it took me straight back to being a kid, pineapple cubes are another one. Funny, I never buy sweets now, just chocolate. Do you have anything which reminds you of being a kid?

Drumstick lollies. I used to buy them from my local newsagent at the weekends. Haven't had one in years, I'm not such a fan of sweets these days, I prefer savoury foods and snacks.

Fried bread. Mum used to fry a slice and I'd have it for breakfast with ketchup. Not sure why. Maybe because electric toasters weren't so common back then and it took longer under the grill!

Freddo chocolate bars - back when they were 10p.

Cadbury's Dream - the new Cadbury's white chocolate just isn't the same.

Turkey Twizzlers - who doesn't love Turkey Twizzlers?

Choc ices - we always had some of these in our freezer during the summer.

I sometimes still buy black jacks from home bargains. I miss toffos. I loved them. Also candy necklaces, you could cause a lot of mayhem with a candy necklace/watch ๐Ÿ˜‚
