I'm pretty sure these are still available.









Not retro, but I purchased this energy drink this afternoon just for the novelty value...

Might be called something else - Cinnamon Grahams are now called Curiously Cinnamon.

We sell those where I work (wholesalers) but I've never seen them in actual shops. So...many...jokes...possible :lol: .

We only started selling them because a local lapdance club requested them.

Reese Nutrageous bars and Reese Pieces, which you can get in Tesco now, have a similar kind of peanut butter that the kit kats had.

I really miss nerds and dweebs and all that stuff - there's a specialist bizzare candy shop in Birmingham that sells it all, along with all sorts of weird foreign candy, but its more expensive and the shop is busy, it would be nice to just be able to pick it up in a corner shop for the old price. Co Op shops can be good for old style sweets.

One thing I liked was when there was an interesting sweet tied in with a blockbuster movie, like Jurrasic park sweet baby dinos that came in an egg you could keep.

On the other side of the coin there's the inexplicable stuff that seems to survive no matter what. Those things that really should be retro by now, and essentially are retro when you get right down to it, but somehow they're still on the shelves.

Who on earth has been buying Brain's Faggots for all these years? And Tunnock's Caramel Wafers?

And why is it that the ultimate grandad sweets, Liquorice Allsorts, have lasted this long when far superior sweeties have gone the way of the dodo?
and Fry Turkish Delight, how can that still be on shelf.

I was upset the other week to not find Cadbury Snaps on the shelf.

Fry's Turkish Delight is amazing, that's why it's still on the shelves.

^ Same here - hate the traditional stuff, love that chocolate-covered wonder in the shiny purple wrapping.

Yeah loved those. The yoghurt was pink wasn't it? I seem to remember it tasted really nice. They were always really expensive for a yoghurt though...

yeah, they were pink and very expensive. IIRC , they were around 80p to £1 for one yoghurt alone. I remember I had to save my pocket money for a month to get one. lol
