    Burtons Potato Puffs, loved them , barbercue beef? You're right about the Wagon Wheels too, seemed as big as erm wagon wheels, and Tudor crisps, supposedly very strong flavored I recall pickled onion ones.

    Those Tunnocks wafer bars and the Terry's version of the kit kat. Think it was called Waifa. Used to come in milk or plain choc.

    Dont think you can buy either anymore.

    Hi guys..

    Tuck shops were great..I used to buy the very strong Beef KP Sky Divers that often had a 'flavour Ball' in them that made you feel ill..and Cabanas and sometimes a Picnic!! and a bacony flavoured biscuit crisp snack thing in an orange bag..think they were called 'Smax'?

    We used to buy home-made, or should I say school-made pasties in a bread roll - lovely.
