    Mint humbugs every time! Flying Saucers are also pretty good. My Dad always goes for rhubarb and custard sweets. YUMMY.
    Yess, humbugs and rhubarb and custard sweets are forever.

    !!!I remember them!
    I was the only person in my family who liked them.
    There was also those purple/green ones but I can't remember what they were called...fruit salad perhaps?

    I sometimes see Sherbet Fountains, although I don't like them myself.

    Werther's Original are pretty old (I still buy them from time to time :p: )

    I'm the only one I know who seems to like them too, tbh I can't understand why anyone would not like them!

    I love fruit salads too but they will always be second to the black jack for me. And fruit salads are yellow and pink :

    Yellow and pink...purple and green. Same thing really.

    Also I just found this website http://www.aquarterof.co.uk/black-jacks-p-413.html
    I smirked at the name. My dad orders quarters when we go to an old fashioned sweet shop. Last time I went I was on my own but I asked for a "bag" on the basis that I couldn't remember if it was a quarter, and eighth or a half.
    The guy a few places behind me in the queue did order in quarters though.

    I can never find them anywhere! Apart from one random time in M&S they were mixed up with all these other sweets which I had to buy just to access the black jacks. Otherwise I've never seen them in my local Tescos or anything. 30 cents!? Where are you from? The stall I brought mine for charged me £1.50 for a big pack, was worth it though
