    So what are your favourite, old school sweets? I am talking about the sweets that have stood the test of time and are really old and aren't commonly sold anymore unless you go into speciality old-fashioned sweet shops like Mrs Simms, where they are all sold in delectable glass jars.

    These are my absoloute favourites, what are yours?

    Sugar Mice:




    Gob-Stoppers:




    Peanut Brittle:



    Kola Kubes:




    And there are many more...

    How have they stood the test of time if they aren't commonly sold anymore?

    Pretty much just Pear drops, they were nice; I've never been a sweet person. Much prefer chocolate.

    I've never seen/heard of Sugar Mice..
