    I'm sure you can get Um Bongo, but it might be rare as I had it a few weeks ago. I remember that there was pickle onion monster munch that used to turn your tongue blue and french fries that were fish and chips flavoured and many more.

    Read the Um Bongo one again, I misread it the first time to.

    I kinda liked that Ice-cream Monster Munch at the time!

    Sunny D was always terrible though; it tasted like a melted ice-lolly.

    I remember quite a few of those. I used to love having Pingu head ice cream when I ate out at restaurants with my family, and I used to drink Sunny D all the time. I also really loved turkey twizzlers - I only wish they weren't so unhealthy!

    Lick Bars - Sour Liquorice chewy bars with a cartoon cow on the wrapper, with some crazy long tongue.

    Loved these as a nipper, but have found no evidence they ever existed, online..

    What a vile name for something that you're supposed to put in your mouth. Who on Earth came up with that?

    I've seen Funny Feet and Sunny D on sale in several shops fairly recently. Anyone remember the flavoured veg that was around in the mid 90s (eg. chocolate flavoured carrots, pizza flavoured sweetcorn) that was suppose to encourage kids to eat more veg? I never had it myself but I remember it being advertised.

    Completely forgot about Kwenchy Kups.

    I liked the vanilla Monster Munch, my mate's mom worked for Bunzl and we used to go in the van and nick those and vanilla coke which was out at the same time.

    They where amazing. I loved those.
    I actually collected the heads with the different coloured hats on. Not sure what happened to them though.
