Although apparently they did try to rerelease it a few years ago. It made it on to my shopping list, for some reason.....

I was going to say Angel delight but after a quick google search, it appears you can still buy the stuff, can't understand why? :thdn:

Here you go GCRO, seems like most of them have been discontinued but a few still get made. Used to lover the wafer and dark choc ones, both no longer made :cry:

These weren't bad, especially with a good slosh of hot sauce. You can still get Pot Noodles (I end up wearing most of it) but not Pot Rice. Wonder why? :?

Good shout on Fuse bar. Used to love them and inexplicably Cadburys dropped them.

Moving way from confectionery, this was one of my favourite childhood breakfast cereals which seemed to be here one day and vanished the next

I used to like an occasional Pot Noodle. Last few I've eaten have given me the right old guts-ache.
Not sure they should be doing that. Avoid 'em now.

White chocolate, crazily imo, always gets a bad press. I think that some people don't believe that it's real chocolate. White chocolate things always sell well but then they always discontinue them, for some reason. Apart from Milky Bar which is a fairly horrible white chocolate & has been & will be, around for ever.
I love the mix of milk & white so much, I occasionally make my own, but it has to be milk chocolate flakes covered in white chocolate, for obvious reasons.
They are a-maze-ing. But your pancreas & arteries won't thank me..

A couple from my youth:
Cabana Bars - kind of like a Bounty but also with cherry inside (which, I have to say, sounds bloody horrible, but I loved them at the time)
Image

Swisskit bars - surpised no-one has resurrected them as a healthy-ish, albeit chocolate covered snack

Image 4p, FFS!

The last one is Old Jamaica bars, though Sainsbury have sporadically had them

Ah thanks for that. Looks like Club Mint is still available. Will have to hunt them down.

Breakfast slices. They were like a chopped smoked bacon / sausage mish mash. They were damn good for a quick sarnie.

And another thing....Why do all supermarkets suddenly no longer stock any form of pink grapefruit squash?? Not everyone's favourite, but I love the stuff.
