    Hi

    There has been 1 sweet which i can never get anyone to remember from the 70`s and i do not know the name of , so here goes . They were a mixed bag of fruit flavour balls , similar to Maltesers ( same size and honeycombed ) but with no chocolate coating . i think the packet was white and the flavours were strawberry , lemon ,orange , lime .

    please somebody tell me what they were so i can prove to the wife i am not off my rocker .

    One (thankfully) defunct sweet I remember form the early 70s was "cigarettes" made of some hard chalky type confectionary. The end had red food colouring on it to make it look like it was lit. There's no way that would be allowed these days.

    Not a sweet as such but I remember the semi joke "Hedgehog Flavour" Crisps from about 1983. Had all the schoolboys snickering and wanting to buy a packet.

    I remember sometime in the 1980s Sweet Cigarettes became Candy Sticks with the ends no longer coloured red.

    From what I remember Hedgehog crisps had a fairly spicy taste that was hard to discribe, but later on they had more standard flavourings.

    They used to be my fave, I always wish they would bring back!

    They were already gone before the 90s, maybe 88/89?

    I remember Pyramints being around until about 1992, I also miss them. One Xmas my Mum got some which could be hung on the tree,

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.
