Booty Bags!

Post by crusto » Sat Jul 07, 2012 9:14 pm

Can anyone remember these? My mom always used to bring me one back when she got home from our weekly shop when I was a kid. Iirc It contained a packet of cola flavour frosties, some black jacks, fruit salads, some sugary jelly type sweets and a few other odds 'n' sods, all lovely! The 'highlight' though was the free sticker that came with it. With characters such as fireman booty, builder booty, baby booty etc. Ive had a quick google but couldnt find any photos or info. If anyone has any please share. Would love to see what they look like again, its been effing years!

try looking for either trebor or bassett booty bags in images,i remember having a few of the stickers.the trebor packet doesn't look right to me i think it's the bassett one but with my memory it could be either.
couldn't find anything on the stickers.

Cheers, that looks about right, but like you say, the stickers are wrong. Maybe its from before they started doing the Booty characters.

We used to be bought one of these each for the long car journey to Cornwall on holiday as kids. I really wanted to buy one for my daughter to keep the tradition going, but have not found them anywhere sadly. I used to buy them in the past for friends when they went on journeys as a nice little gesture. Not sure they ever replaced them with anything if they have stoped being made.

Once ate a whole booty bag the night before a day trip to Devils Bridge. Just as we arrived I threw up the entire lot - in a multicoloured rainbow of spew - right over my three brothers. Those shiny holo stickers were ace. They stayed on my bedroom door till i moved out.

On a side note they were trebor - though later on it became Trebor Bassett thanks to the b'stards at cadbury.
