Ahhhh yes I left all of those things out. I particularly remember Newberry Fruits as someone special to me in childhood always had a box of them opened on her table. Thanks for your memories too and Peace & Love x

I was born in 1969 so remember a lot of those really. I think Sherbert Fountains are still around and there is something like Space Dust too, I remember how weird that felt fizzing on my tongue & sherbert Fountains were so messy!! I had Clackers too and a Space Hopper which was fun. I read Mandy, Bunty, Twinkle, Misty, Jackie, Blue Jeans, Girl, Bimbo, I loved my comics and mags!
