Hi Tamara,

How funny that you had me saved as a fav on eBay. Small world, isn't it? I loved cherry Tootsie Pops the best of all (still do!).

Enjoy your weekend,

Those huge chewing gum sticks cant think of the name now.Spurt chewing gum (yes I liked gum lol)

The huge big chewing gum stick was called a "Big Charlie". I had forgotten about most of these lollies, loved the black cats, malt lollies and spurt chewing gum too.

Here are some I remember:
Sherbet tubes with a stick of licorice in them, Whizz FIzz (packets of shrbet?), White Knites, Curls, Salty Plums, musk sticks, Sunny Boys, Razzamataz, little pink lollie pops with clowns faces on the wrappers - tasted like lavender ...

Thanks for the I am hungry.

Does anyone remember specific mixed lollies? I have great memories of battleships, hats, star fish, penguins (black with a white tummy), breads (mini loaves of bread) as well as many of the lollies you can get today - mint leaves, milk bottles, teeth, raspberries etc

Battleships, Aussie hats, spooks (similar to a snake but segregated body and funny head) Bright Babies ( A taller version of jelly baby), mini bottles (small brightly coloured bottles), cocktail fruits, caramilk chocolate, pink chocolate.

Anyone knw who made battleships & hats...allens was popular but quite sure they were favourite especially the purple, loved the texture and how they would go all white around the edge when bitten.

Also quite liked the finely sugar coated fish, and dusted jelly babies. And cant beleive someone remembered the penguins a memory losy. Wasnt there a face that pulled secregated too?

Who remember small pakts of 2 toned chips: Naughts naughts & crosses and Space invaders.

2 toned icecreams with 2 sticks: Take 2 (red ice block & yellow ice cream) and Smurfs (Blue iceblock and white ice cream), Chocolate & Strawberry frozen Snips (loved the crispy/icy side) and cant forget the best icecream ever: BIG TOFF!!! Big toff, that big toffy taste, that big toffy flavour (was the jingle) it was like a double choc (later called feast) except a big chunk of gooey/chewy toffee in place of the choclate centre.
