Top Ten Sweets
Advantages: Just like being a kid again!
Disadvantages: Not good fot the teeth.
Can you remember how long you stood there for in front of all those sweeties, trying to decide exactly what you could get for your money?! I know I can. Now if I got 2 of those then I can have one of them, but I want two of each! Oh bugger! Another 10 mins in the shop!
Heres my top ten fav sweets:
In at No.10 is: LOVE HEARTS
Not just for the fact that they are a bit sharp but more cause I like reading the messages! Even when I share them I have to see the message! Ahh 'Best Friends', 'Cute'. Hehe!
No 9 is : TRAFFIC LIGHTS
Remember these? They were round sweets obviously containing the clours of traffic lights. You can get them in lollypops now but they used to be loose (ewww am I showing my age here?!).
My mates and I used to keep taking them out of our mouths to see what colour we had then. How gross!! but hey when you're a kid these things are important!
No 8 is : JELLY BABIES
What can be said about these apart from who DOESN'T bite the head off first!! Black ones are my fav of all, but I still think twice about the green ones and used to put them back in the bag!
No 7 is : FRIED EGGS
These little imitation chewy fried eggs used to cause us great amusement. We used to get two and hold them up at a certain place on our chests!! I was only 6 at the time but thinking about it I could probably do a good comparison with them now! But really these used to last for ages cause they were so chewy.
No 6 is : BLACK JACKS
Eww how they make your teeth go black! but they taste scrummy so I don't care. Get so frustrated though when its warm and the paper gets stuck to your sweet!
No 5 is : DRUMSTICKS
These come is several flavours now but I like the pink and white ones, Theres lots of 'chewy factor' for this and how many times did it come off the stick in one go!!!
No 4 is : FRUIT SALADS
Always partnered with the Black Jack but I preferred these if I had the choice. Hands up those of you who had competitions to see whos would last the longest or be the smallest!
No 3 is : SHRIMPS
Yes those little pink things that taste nothing like real shrimps. Some kids are gonna have a shock when they discover what they REALLY taste like! They seem to have got smaller these days or perhaps they seemed bigger then cause I was smaller? Oh who knows!
No 2 is : SHERBET FOUNTAINS
The tube of sherbet with the string of liquorice to dip it in! My only complaint is that the liquorice disappears before the sherbet, then you have tip up the tube and in my case (being blond then and I still am now!) it goes all down you!
AND THE WINNER IS : FLYING SAUCERS!!!
More sherbet and rice paper. Oh how I love these. I used to bite a bit off then stick my tongue in it and walk around with this flying saucer sticking out!!
Just to add that I still eat all these and still stop off at the shop near my sons school to buy us a bag of sweets, although half have probably been eaten by the time he comes out of school! Well you have to have something to do before the bell goes!!
Thanks for reading and I hope some of you can remember these! :-)
Summary: Fun sweets that bring back those childhood memories.
