I just had the idea to check ebay tonight just for a laugh, and i came across sweets i havent seen anywhere in about 15 years. I came across Cola pips, fruit pips, and even stockleys rosey apples again. these were hard boiled sweets covered in sugar, anyone remember these, i just bought a 3Kg box of them as soon as i found them
the below pic was what made me instantly recognise them
We had a local shop that sold these but closed down around 15 years ago, since then i have been in a lot of sweet shops that had the "seemingly discontinued sweets" but i never came across cola pips, rosey apples or even the roy rover or dandy bars.
Sweets of today just dont compare to what we had, even the re-released ones in unrecognised packaging just arent the same. getting them wrapped in a cone of paper really brings back memories, however sad that might sound
