caramac - old sweets - someone bought a feast and it seemed smaller than it used to - I bought a jubilee and thought it wasn't as big as I remembered it :D

Where I live jubilees are drinks in plastic cups that the shops make from cordial and freeze themselves. They usually use soda stream syrup or slush syrup so you get all the "exotic" flavours.

the triangle things are known by their brand name of sun lollies.

Now I just need an amusing tag line.

This "Have things got smaller" question constantly pops up. We had a discussion about wagon wheels in work and went onto their web page to read "A history of Wagon Wheels". The makers insisted that the size has not changed since they were first made.

Another one was curly whirlys. I'm sure they used to be like 2 ft long when I was a kid.

Down my neck o' the woods, "Jubblies" mean two things:

1) those funny shaped ice lolly things, which are great
2) a woman's love bumps, which are great

I remember Mars Bars before they improved them (about 10 years ago)...

And over here (Canada) a "Milky Way" is actually a different bar, and is surprisingly close to an original UK Mars Bar!

WTF!? The 80's are GONE!? And they're never coming BACK!?
