Oh God... they were awesome, and I'd completely forgotten about them until now...

Were they Halloween only, or all year round? God damn, what can they possibly have been called?

Something "bones"...? Bone shaker?

:?: :?: :?:

Red Mill Snacks is about a 5 minute drive from my home and they're still going, most shops in Wolves stock their crisps :D

Although a quick Google just found this:

Yep. You can still get Cadbury's Fudge. Remember : "A finger of Fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat!" :D
Good to hear. I thought maybe they'd disappeared as someone thought 'finger of fudge' could be taken in the wrong way, ie something smutty. :P

No they don't sell 'em anymore :( . They added the Heinz logo on the front of the packet at the same time they produced the Branston Pickle flavour. There was another one too but all three disappeared at the same time.

I remember that, wasn't it called something like Twist Off? It'll come back to me :wink:
Twist 'n Squeeze and yes, you can still get them!

For some reason I think these were called Pacers, dunno why I think that as I was born in 1976! Does that ring a bell?

That's not the ones I was thinking about, although I used to eat Pacers & had completely forgotten about them so thanks for reminding me of them! :D If I remember correctly, they used to really stick to your teeth!

The ice cream I miss is a similar thing to feast except it was rectangular and the bottom half had a biscuit outer so you could hold the whole thing like a sandwhich. cannot remember what it was called but it was packed with chocolate, ice cream, nuts etc.
Winner Taco! The advert had a guy turn into a polar bear after eating it.

Loads of the things people are asking about - Twist N Squeeze, Space Raiders, Feast, Quarterbacks etc, we sell them in my shop. Space Raiders come in small size (15p) and big size (20p), but Fudge now costs 17p (shocking).

Remember Pot Mash? From the makers of Pot Noodle, only it was spicy mash potato with croutons. Gorgeous stuff.

Ice cream flavoured Monster Munch? From the makers of Nerds, there was Runts and Dweebs. Wonka Bars (the exploding ones) were nice too.

How about the Spider-Man ice lolly? It was red with blue gooey stuff on the inside. It had re-brandings a plenty as Casper, Donkey Kong and a nondescript Ogre. Ventura bars were lovely too, great big long chewy things. And Zig & Zag's Zog Juice (like Ribena with bits of jelly).

Fruitopia? Like Oasis but with bits in it, and nice glass bottles. And the drink that was made when Nemesis opened in Alton Towers, like an aniseed-flavoured Coke. How I miss Vanilla Coke...
