I remember Tudor Crisps (remember them? daft adverts set in Newcastle with a paperboy?)

They would occasionally (as do Walkers, these days - didn't they buy Tudor?) release limited edition flavours... the best I remember was Lamb and Mint Sauce.

As an aside, does anybody remember when those 'Hedgehog Crisps' came out? I think it was just the branding, but WTF was all that about!?

Anyone remember the short-lived Tab Clear? Tasted awful as I recall. Still I bought a good few cans of it, being 11 or 12 at the time and easily influenced.

I don't think I remember Tab Clear, but I do remember the precursor to modern diet pop - One-Cal. It was fekkin awful!

Yes I do! :D





Now what about a short lived product that nobody ever remembers...



E.T. cola flavoured biscuits! :o



They were GREEN coloured biscuits that were sold in conjuction with the release of the E.T. movie. They included a free trading card, but tasted vile. :( [/quote]

I remember ET biscuits.

Following their release I took to dying my food, so I'd have green tatties or red neep.

Here's a few things.

Cherry lips sweets.
Funny Feet ice lollies
Fab lollies (with the 100's and 1000's on) still made I think 8)

The one that I really miss though is the Choco Rico Cornetto. I seem to remember that it was much bigger than your regular Cornetto.

I remember the Hedgehog crisps. I used to love those but I think that they were just some form of smoky bacon type of flavour.

I'll tell you what was weird. That spell when they brought out all sorts of strange flavours of ice cream. I remember hearing on the news about all these flavours. Spaghetti bolognese, etc. :shock:

I remember that horrible stuff - my folks seemed to love it but I felt like puking whenever I drunk it. It tasted like tin !!!
