Forgotten food

Recommended Posts

Since when was it 'ok' to stop selling some of the nicest sweets / crisps and chocolate? Remember Hula Hoops shoks? (Those tiny crips with the massive flavour) Mountain Dew? Chrunch chocolate? Nerdz?

Where did they all go and why is globally sweet be the only place that stocks most of the forgotten foods? (and more to the point, why do they get away with selling them at 4 times the RRP?)

Please add your own junk foods that deserve a mention!

what happened to globally sweet?

i miss everlasting gobstoppers, when they came in a box. ever since they changed to bag format, they sucked. now i doubt they even sell them. runts, nerds, dweebs and virtually anything made by wonka in the golden age.

Gambit bar (I think Galaxy chocolate made them or something.)

Splicers. They were a stripey multicoloured chewy bar.

Pacers. They were mint flavoured opal fruits in green and white.

Space Raiders have always tasted the same. They've always been the cheap version of pickled onion monster munch.

OK Drinks:

Hubba Bubba: The Drink

Quattro

Sweets:

Sull Crushers (the ones you get now arent proper skull crushers - the inside liquid used to be far gooeir)

Star Wars yoghurt - I think it was littlewoods used to do this with Gooseberry flavoured Yoda and Toffee Chewbacca

Garbage Pail Kids - did anyone buy these for the gum though ?

Cheers

Stuart

Quattro

This classic drink lost out to the lilt we know and love. Quattro was too bitter and everyone hated it. Also, it lost its fizz straight after opening the can. (Which was white with a multi-coloured diamond split into 4 quarters.)

I can't find a picture of it anywhere on the net.
