    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
    Awh shame, when I go to Uni next year I'll need to bring loads as they're one of my favourite sweets.

    They come in packets like this


    or in bar form for 15 cent

    I went to Mr Simms in Stockport thinking I'd found a one-off charming independent sweet shop only to find out later it was a national franchise. I felt thoroughly disillusioned. I bet Mr Simms is some 30-something Audi driving entrepreneur not a kindly old bespectacled fellow measuring sweeties in quarters from his glass jars. If he even exists.

    Anyway, does anyone remember these?
