Being born in 1977 means I spent my childhood in the 80s and my teenage years in the 90s. I have so many memories of things I did, toys I had, TV and films I enjoyed plus music and foods and sweets I liked plus much more.
I thought I’d share some memories on my blog. I’m sure many of you will also share similar memories.

It’s sweetie time
My best retro sweets (in no order as they were all good)
1) Choc lick
ooh I so remember going to my local corner shop and asking for a quarter of this stuff. ( I didnt have a clue what a quarter meant back then lol) it had various names but consisted of chocolate bits with nuts and toffee which you dipped finger into. Was lovely and messy too.
2) Chocolate cups
. Again these had various names depending on what shop you went in. They are not nuts at all just chewy toffee covered in chocolate and again bought in quarters of?? Who knows! But very very tasty.
4) Cinder Toffee
. Sherbert in a tube with a liquorice stick (which we called a Spanish?) very messy but nice.
Hope my sweetie page hasn’t made you too hungry, I’m baffled how our teeth survived with all the lovely sweets we used to have.
