kola cubes,and sour apples. I never did manage to keep a sour apple in my mouth for long,they made you pull some real funnys faces, :happy7: ..The sweet shop at Horsley Hill was always packed with kids after school, I remember they sold loose tabs behind the counter,they used to give you them in a little white paper bag, But if you were realy flush,you could buy 5 Park Drive. they come in a box.. :lol:

:lol: :lol: you're the first person I know who has ever mentioned those tabs as noone seems to remember them, but my mam used to smoke Park Drive on the odd occasion.
I liked pineapple chunks and kola cubes and could keep both in my mouth for ages..people of ill repute like me can do these things :lol: :roll: :lol: :roll: :lol:
