I don't know what they were called, but they were kind of strings of sweet, toasted coconut! Yum! Haven't had them since I was a kid

Anyone remember Banjo chocolate bar - two finger sticks with nutty cream filling, light crispy wafer, chopped nuts covered in chocolate? It was made by Mars. There was also a coconut version. It vanished in the 80s. There is a FB Petition trying to bring it back. Remember how the Wispa came back after a FB campaign.

Support a FaceBook Campaign called - Bring-Back-Banjo-chocolate and there is also a link on its page to sign the Petition. Lets get this golden oldie back on the shelves!

Chris...you can get Fry's chocolate cream in Tescos (well it's on their website). I'm with you...I used to love those sherbert things but hated the liquorice! And I also nibbled the pink coconut bit off and left the black bit, with liquorice alsorts! Haha

I am sure someone else has responded to this post but just in case. TAB was the original diet coke which changed name in the late 70s here in the UK. Remember it mentioned in in "Back to the Future"...

Does anyone remember the sweets fromthe sweet shop that were shaped like peanut shells and tasted like caramel,very hard and when you bit into them there were crushed peanuts inside. Ahh happy days.

In reply to an earlier post on 12 Jul 2013, 21:33:38 BST
I do! I do! They were imaginatively called Sweet Peanuts.

In reply to an earlier post on 13 Jul 2013, 10:49:49 BST
They were called Sweet Peanuts! I have bought them online.

As I'm reading lots of these posts out to my Mum she's saying " I know that bar, ooh I remember those!! " . So she wants to know does anyone remember Lovells plush nougats? Small round malteser-like nougat balls dusted with icing sugar?!

Chris says:
Yes Janeway - I remember them. Extremely moorish !! I'd scoff the lot with no trouble at all in just a few minutes !
Reading all these posts only convinces me that the kids of today will never know what they have missed !

I found lots of these retro sweets are sold on the internet. www.sugarboy.co.uk They also have shops in the Kent area. I used to send boxes of them to my mum and dad for Xmas and birthdays. We're lucky enough to have an old fashioned sweet shop in our town (Godalming, Surrey)) that sells a good selection of them too.

I used to buh a bar which I think was called
Orkney fudge but it was more like a bar of tablet
Covered in chocolate , any ideas?

In reply to an earlier post on 30 Jul 2013, 17:13:28 BST

Orkney fudge is still available. I used to love this when it was branded 'Robertsons', but I tried the modern version recently and it was not as good. Various Scottish sites sell this - suggest you search on line.

I remember Tiffin bar, 5 Boys and especially Icebreaker and Pyramints - I also remember a few different flavours of Frys in a bar... am I right?

Loved Aztec bars! Also that coconut tobacco that I think you can still buy per 100g online at one of the online retro sweet shops. Mint Cracknel and the Frys 5 centres were great. What I miss is Cadburys Cream Teddies that they did at Christmas, like creme eggs but teddy shaped :-)) also loved the pineapple creams you used to get in Quality Street
