Bought a box of 10 embassy filters, looked just like the old candy cigarettes, were so cute.

They were truly awesome, them things. As with the spicy tomato wheat crunchie and the Texan bar, they were deemed too nice to be enjoyed by the public, and removed from production.

Old Jamaica Rum and Raisin Chocolate was introduced by @CadburyUK in 1970 before being discontinued in 2003, it was then relaunched under the Bourneville banner before sadly disappearing again in 2014

Bloody loved those. So much better than the bacon ones or whatever the flavour is in the purple bag.

Very much so.
Asda, Morrisons. Quite often an extortionate £1.30 in some shops but look around & you should find them for £0.65

Brannigan's roast beef and mustard crisps were awesome. You just cannot get them now. I've seen them once on sale in recent years (up north in a pub somewhere) but can't get them down here at all.

Yeah come to think of it, the last time I saw a pack of them was in a cheapo shop called Savers or something like that. Gutted I didn't buy more of them. They go great with beer and the mustard they use is nuclear strength.

** EDIT ** that shop was called "home bargains".
