This post might be most relevant to GaryL.....but if anyone ever visits Tenby, there is a shop there that sells all these 'old-time' sweeties.

At the back end of last summer, we went there and got a load of 'blasts from the past'....including these >>



And these >>

What about:
Texan bars (chewy nougat in chocolate)
Cabana bars (like a bounty but with cherry jam stuff in it too)
Nutty bar (fudge rolled in peanuts)
Spangles (Grapefuit ones tasted like washing up liquid)
Pacers (like spearmint chewits)
Toffee (and fruit) Toffo's
Jaw breakers and fireballs
