yes and dont forget the sugar mice we hung on the treeHow about that cheap candy we would hang on a Christmas tree and have to wait for 12 days after Christmas to get a pick off the tree, mean while you have already picked a couple of the back of the tree hoping no one would notice. the gold coins, bell shape, Santa, etc.
palm banana split toffee barsThe Palm brand was made like a six-penny bar of chocolate(!) i.e. marked out in squares but there were also bars about an inch-wide. A lot of these sweets were un-branded as far as we were concerned, sometimes sold by the farthing and weighed out or counted from the anonymous jar at the back of the shop. (The same might be true of biscuits, often sold loose from glass-topped bins in front of the counter. Just low enough to catch the eye of the child!).
Were the narrow bars of toffee called Arrow bars, cost I think 1d and came in different flavours.Lyn, am I wrong in thinking that the banana streaked toffee was also available in relatively narrow, wrapped bars? I vaguely recall stretching out a softened bar, to twice its length, before scoffing it.
Gosh, thats a blast fromt he past, the Arrow bar, were they 1d? One of a rage of small bars of toffee, occasionally impossible to get the wrapper off.Were the narrow bars of toffee called Arrow bars, cost I think 1d and came in different flavours.
Seem to remember peeling the paper off was quite tricky as it stuck to the toffee.
