    When I was at school the best thing to get from the tuck shop was 10p Thingies! Beef flavour were best lol. In lessons they could last from break til lunch

    thats sad might depend on when you where at school like primary in the seventies etc.



    but i remember tuck shops great stuff was not a big user of it myself most of what i had was school dinners if they where good enough.
    but if i was real hungry id get something from the tuck shop.

    I had about 25p a day to spend on sweets at the School Tuck Shop. I usually bought a Choc Dip or maybe Outer Spacer crisps.

    Btw, take a look at this book, The Great British Tuck Shop.

    We had a tuck shop at our school for a while but it got broke in to and so they stopped it ( it was a rough old place) so a few of the more buisness minded kids started there own one ( every break in the boys toilets) selling shop bought sweets at inflated prices .... went well till they got busted

    The tuck shop at my school was broken into as it was one of the gym store rooms & only had one door between it & the outside.

    It eventually it was relocated into an alcove in the main hall

    I went to a very small village primary school so there was no tuck shop but an old lady who lived across the road used to sell sweets to us from her back door. I don't think she made a lot of money but probably enjoyed the company. I suppose that wouldn't be allowed nowadays, health and safety or something would put a stop to it. We did have one at secondary school though, and I remember the introduction of new sweets like Star Bars, Wham and Wispa being rather exciting!

    No, she wasn't connected to the school. Just an old lady who set up a little shop at her house.
