So does anybody remember Looney Toons Crisps that had pictures PRINTED onto them? Or Ring-pops? :P

So people, name a few others!

Anyone remember Nerds sweets? The ones that came in boxes which had 2 separate flavours? I loved those.

I remember Nerds, and Dweebs too, we used to see if we could fit a whole column in our mouth at once! Oh and yeah you can still buy transform-a-snacks for 10p. I also remember these crisps called 'Thingies' they were 5p a pack! 5p?! Those were the days!

P.s. What ever happened to the Wispa?

Yes ... I bought a couple of packets of Transform-A-Snacks from my local corner shop the other day. Not very popular though - cos I ain't seen 'em anywhere else!

Well in the late seventies in junior school I always used to buy 'Bones' at the tuck shop - salt & vinegar BONE shaped puffy crisps that were gorgeous.

The first time I had some of those I thought the rice paper was novelty packaging and you where just supposed to eat the sherbert, queue my friend asking why I was throwing them away.
