Birds eye faggots, though I can't see too many lamenting their disparition. :)

My local Salisbury's does, in fact I have a bottle in the cupboard at the moment. From their Hi-Juice range.

Waitrose were doing fresh faggots in their "essential" range until fairly recently - lovely they were, wrapped in bacon. Could go for a plate of them tonight.

You can still get them, but, as with everything else of a similar nature, they've been downsized, so that lovely thick lump of chocolate - that we as kids used to nibble off, working a way around the whole bar - is now about a millimetre thick.

As in "green sheets of dry lasagne"? You can get that everywhere, no?

Most likely they sell it in Waitrose or some of the larger supermarkets. It's still out there.

I fancy some now.

Bizarre - can't think of a supermarket that doesn't stock it round here.

Right fancy a big plate of lasagne now you've mentioned it...

OK not in Asda, Sainsbury's (x2) Tesco (x2) Waitrose in Stevenage, Hertford, Welwyn Garden City or Hitchin

I've checked

Haven't tried Morrisons in Letchworth, hate Morrisons

Saw in Sainsbury's, little squares of After Eights. Know they're not the same, but could be similar?

'Double Diamond'.
Never tasted it but it was supposed to, 'work wonders'...

Watney's cans of 'Party Seven'.
Luckily I was too young to drink the (apparently) vile stuff...

You can still get a beer which calls itself White Shield, but it is not the same stuff despite what the label says.

Now brewed by Coors and marketed in 500ml bottles.
