You'd think they'd still make those Polo Holes. Surely making money off waste is a good thing?

They probably find some other way to use them though doubtless.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I think it was just a joke, they make them always with the hole.

I was at the local Maplin last week, and I found that they still do Sodastream! It had been more than a decade since I last saw that!

i think it's a recent thing that it's come back. i've seen them in a few places now! none of it is branded any more (i'm sure you used to get sodastream official coca-cola etc, but now none of it is at all...)

Banana Sugar Puffs???

Hate Sugar Puffs, but with banana in them, it's got to be worth a go.
Anyone tried those new Snickers? They're called Snickers Maximum, because they have almost double the amount of peanuts that a usual Snickers has (which is good).

Also, I'm going to to order some of these :D

I bought a box of Banana Puffs and barely tasted any banana, avoid.

So I say again, Kellogg's, GET OFF YOUR ARSES AND BRING BACK BANANA BUBBLES!

i remember banana bubbles,basically rice crispies but banana flavoured really nice after you finished the cereal you had a banana milkshake left.
i haven't seen these for many years,i think they stopped around the time the press and media kept reporting about all the e numbers in food.

E numbers are great. Without them everything would taste of uncooked turnip. That's a fact, a solid irrefutable fact.

Booo to the man. Hail to the E!

There's a misapprehension with E-numbers, very few of them are artificial ingredients. Water has an E-number, so does salt!

"Don't push me, push a Push Pop!"
"Gimme a push. A Push Pop."

"Push a Push Pop, save some for later!"

Nah, don't remember them.

Push Pops were good, if a bit messy.

As were Nerds, and Dweebs.

^ Nerds and Dweebs were awesome, the only bad thing was trying to open the packets! Awkward as a stubby-fingered kid!

Haha no clearly don't remember.... great little sweet, as I said before I think can still buy them on some online shops.

Anyone remember these, not sure what they are called. They came in a pack of like 6 smaller packs and the packaging was blue, the food itself was these rounded biscuits which were golden brown, with animal faces on them. Inside the biscuity layer was yummy solid chocolate. They were so good.
