    Old Sweet Names

    Just for a bit of fun and to get the grey matter working

    Can anyone remember any sweets that have had their names changed ?

    I can only think of Snickers - was Marathon, and Opal Fruits - now Star Burst

    Not sweets but Oil of Olay was Oil of Ulay.

    I remember when blue Smarties sent you psychotic and Play Doh was tasty...those two might be related.
