Couldn't quite get them candy tabs to stay alight. And that chewy tobacco tasted too sweet for me, couldn't keep pipe alight. Them smokers kits were a waste of time.

We had a woman in Grotto Road who made toffee cakes once in a while, I think she sold them for a penny each.

Ooooooh! I loved Imps, real black midget gems, spanish, (you can see the theme here :D ) & also the little liquorice pipes with red hundreds & thousands on the end to look like it was lit!
Remember that Fry's chocolate with the boys faces on? Can't remember the name of it. Also coconut ice, lucky bags, crackerjack, iced gems, & ice breaker choc, & oooo cherry lips! =P~

We were so poor we ate clover or fresh grass shoots instead of sweets, those grass shoots were very sweet. I used to dream of coming from the posh end of town like Mr A. :?
