    I remember Smarties that had faces on them! They were limited edition packs wioth green smarties in that had little funny faces on them. I think you had to collect the caps to get a smartie purse thing.

    I loved Cabana bars, too.

    While I'm on the subject, has anyone noticed that "Fuse" bars seem to have disappeared? I haven't seen any for a while, anyway.

    Nah, they haven't have they? When I first travelled India I took a load of Fuse bars and ate them all in Delhi on my first day .. figured they would melt in the heat ...

    None of the "old" food tastes the same anymore does it? I had Space Food Sticks & Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs a while back and they are not like I remember at all.

    Hmm, on the subject of things not tasting the same ... some might say that your taste buds change over time e.g. when I was a kid i hated coffee and lager, but now 'hey presto!' I love em. I think things are different nowadays though what with restrictions on E numbers and flavourings and all that other bad stuff that made our beloved sweets taste so good.

    I had some palma violets the other day and they tasted the same as ever ... god awful!

    I used to hate coffee when I was a kid and now I love it... always liked lager tho! lol I used to buy coffee cremes by the bucket load thats how mad about it I am! Everyone always gives me the coffee ones in boxes of chocs... no one else seems to like them.

    Parma violets taste of perfume, they are terrible. I can't think why I ate them when I was a kid. Same as pear drops. I used to like them but now they turn my stomach! And rice paper... what was that about??? I ate sheets of it from the sweet shop and now the thought makes me feel sick.
    If eight out of ten cats prefer whiskas, do the other two shave or wax?
