Sugar...Did you say sugar? Count me in...Who can resist sugar?
Not me. When I was a kid I loved candy corn, well really anything with sugar. Thanks for a chance.

M & M's were my favorite as a child (I think you call them smarties!)

Stampingcaz said...

Hmmm quarter or Sherbert Lemons, Cola Cubes or Sweet Peanuts please :) YUMM

Andrea said...

Tootie Fruities, the garage round the corner has started selling these again so any Nellies who make their way to my home can enjoy them too :)

Lythan said...

Sherbet dib dabs. NO question. Confession: Sometimes I still buy them just for me...

Susan said...

My favourite when I was kid was a bag of penny sweets (halfpenny sweets too!). White chocolate mice, pink shrimp, coconut mushrooms, cola bottles and loads more. Yumm :-)

Ooh, my favourite sweets were gummy bears! Closely followed by M&Ms.

Ali M said...

Just like your picture Jelly Tots for me, love em, still do. As soon as I saw the picture it brought back memories.

Lisa said...

Any news on Eva, has she had her baby?

Shary said...

I used to love the little drawstring bags of golden nuggets and also sweet tobacco, I think it was made of coconut?. Do you remember them or am I getting old????

Jo said...

My favourite would just have to be spangles.. Why don't they still make them?? mmmm.

I used to suck 'em and lick 'em until the centre wore through and I could attach it to my tongue.. lol.. Oh the fun!!! (and it's just not the same with the ready made hole in the polo!)

Margaret said...

Hmm I loved Cola Cubes, Sherbet lemons or Ice Cups - My gran used to take me to buy a 2oz bag on a Friday after school.

pinga said...

jelly tots! I used to get a tube of them for Christmas

leann said...

ooooooh fizzy cola bottles ~ and not just when i was little...!

Sprogpaws said...

Another vote here for tutty fruties, though I have very fond memories of buying McCowans Highland toffee from Shewans the Bakers - they seemed absolutely huge then!!!

Golden Nuggets, I'd forgotten all about them - what a wonderful trip down memory lane! Didn't they turn into bubblegum when you chewed them, or am I getting my memories mixed up?!?!

Liza said...

Sugar, yes please!! As a child I loved what my mam called "a bag of rubbish", lots of penny sweets in a bag. In them days you got loads for 10p. God that makes me sound old!! Chocolate mice, refreshers, bananas, candy cigarettes. Ooooh!!

Sprogpaws said...

I forgot to ask, what on earth are lucky tatties?!?! Don't think I ever saw those on the shelves in the sweetie shop in Elgin!!

Alex said...

oh its most definitely got to be sherbert pips or pineapple cubes!!! yummy

sugarnellie said...

Lucky tattie Pam were odd looking candy pancakes made of stuff like edinburgh rock but covered in a powdery cinamon with a plastic charm inside. Shame you missed them as I dont think they will make a come back!

Linda said...

Oh my, what a flash from the past.
Mine was Rainbow Kalie. I used to suck my finger and dip it in and end up with a red finger and belly ache.If Dad went to the allotment he'd bring some rubarb so I would dip that in too...double belly ache!

jenny said...

rhubarb and custard for me!! mmmm,
used to love those! cola cubes too, AliM just reminded me of those!

greyparrot said...

tutti fruities here too- My late grandfather used to take me to the shop every time I went round to get a bag, penny sweets too particularly shrimps (they just aren't the same now) caramac bars (YAY they are back) and choc lick!

Erika said...

Sweeties yum, my fav as a child must have been fruit salads and black jacks as you got 3 for a penny, a HUGE bag with 10p pocket money plus the added bonus of a BLACK tongue to scar my little brother with!

Minty Magic said...

I love Rainbow Drops. Our local supermarket sell great big bags of them and I have just munched half a bag of them. I keep dropping them down my jumper - luckily they catch in my bra and I can still eat them LOL!!!!!

Elaine said...

I hated Butterfingers and LOVED Nestle Crunch bars...and 100,000 bars...yum!!
