I wish we could have the old Border Cream Eggs back again! They were the same size as Cadburys Crème Eggs. but were made in Scotland, and the centre was full of chocolate. I have not seen or had any for years!

Nope, Texan was nougat, like a harder version of a Double-Decker topping.
Couldn't beat Texan bars, and Rancheros - bacon flavour crisps...mmmmm the early 80s!! ;D

Five boys was made bvy Fry's. I remember that boy's face like he was my kid. Curiously old-ashioned in some way. Cinder toffee, either with or withou chocolate (Hah!) coating was, like nougat and coconut ice in pink and white, available from a stall on Woolwich market.

Yes I do. They were fantastic sweets. Wish Lovells, who made them still existed.

Caramac ice cream bars are lovely and completely in keeping with the orig choc bars - Iceland have them, usually 4 in a box for all of about 89p

I remember some fantastic chocolates in a little cardboard and paper roll - something like "Croquettes" - the only place they seemed to sell them was a little sweetshop near the railway station - my dad used to buy them for me once every few weeks (money was tight then!) on his way home from his shift as a station porter - so they're tied up with a lot of nostalgia, but I remember them as being delicious even if there weren't many in a packet

In reply to an earlier post on 6 Dec 2014 18:47:49 GMT
Yes Western Fan Girl. Croquettes were made by Nestle and the last ones I had were from Palma airport in Majorca probably 1982-3. Always spent my remaining pesetas on as many as possible. Digressing (for a friend). Does anyone please know something like the 190s Ice Breakers. My poorly friend is having fantasies about them so if there is a substitute I would be grateful.

Does anyone remember coffee Walnut Whips? They still do the vanilla ones but not coffee. :(
Also remember the crisps back then such as Fangs, Claws, Bones.
All the chocolate bars back then like Mars bars were so much bigger and deeper than they make now. :(

In reply to an earlier post on 11 Dec 2014 16:46:08 GMT
We got 3 packs of Walnut Whips in M&S last Xmas and there was a coffee one in that. Yum! :D

If you love nostalgia, and yearn for the confectionery of yesteryear, then you'll love Robert Opie's DVD. It's a feature length documentary packed full of childhood brands like Horror Bags, Spangles and Pink Panther bars! It's available from Amazon. Check out this link - it's well worth a look!

I own the above Robert Opie dvd and can confirm it is an excellent informative walk down memory lane.
Well worth a watch

Cadburys Applejack. What was that like? I imagine it was a bit like Fry's Turkish Delight bars (now Cadburys!) but apple flavoured?

My sister and I used to love them in the 1950's and wish we could still get them. I've tried all the retro sweets sites with no luck, can't remember who made them either.
