Well, can I just register my disappointment that there were no Fruit Salads visible at I Heart Candy...............4 a penny were they not?

You could aye get 4 BlackJacks a penny an aw. (heck, I know it's not pee-cee but that's what they were called in the 70s)........I didnae like them, they turned your tongue and lips black.

These days, I find a fine tempranillo does that too......... :wink: ATTRACTIVE! :lol:

Read this and thought of you: :)

At the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising, where hundreds of exhibits tell the story of a nation's sweet tooth, it's a regular occurrence to see grown men and women lost in a reverie.

Apparently this fascination with sweeties from our past is all down to 'emotional resonance'.

There is a new sweetie shop opened up on Buchannan Street, just up from the tube station. It's called the Candy Shop (how original :)) and I went in last week and spent over £6 on nonsense! :(

Not had cherry lips for ages but DID share some flying saucers wae a wee grandgirl this weekend. Definitely jaw clenching and saliva provoking when ye get through tae the sherbert altho a tad short on that these days methinks. More saucer than sherbert. Or is my memory misplaying that sensation ?
