    Whats your fave and what would you like to see again??

    We miss you! - Retro foods we want back - MSN Food | MSN UK

    I actually saw the Fish and Chips in the shop the other day, but I just couldnt bring myself to spend 69p on them!!!

    One of my faves was the Mexican Chilli French Fries, they used to come in a black pack....very nice!!!

    Andy, you are not a million miles away, so if you get a chance, pop into Kings Heath in Birmingham, there is a shop there called 'I used to have one of those', they have a massive selection of Jar Sweets and all the original selections too, decent prices as well, but I could easily spend a few quid in there!!

    Jeeez, when I think back to some of the E number crammed shyte I must have consumed as a brat it's a wonder I'm still here based on how our media sensationalises diet/food news. I should be at least some part radioactive!

    The thing I miss the most from my childhood is the humble United bar, a kind of honeycomb biscuit bar (same size as a club) covered in milk chocolate. They came in 2 variants, blue ('normal') and orange (orange) flavours.

    The other favourite of my youth has thankfully returned, but when I was a kid it used to have 6 segments as opposed to the 5 it has today, the raisin and biscuit Yorkie bar. Pleasure you can't measure!

    And it costs twice as much today as it did back then! Lucky they didn't rename it Yorky to fit on the 5 chunks!!
