*My* favourite ice lollies were Spangles; they came in either orange (in, of course, *orange* wrapping) or blackcurrant (in purple wrapping) [and were made by Mars] and were made in 1995, the year Spangles sweets were briefly brought back in either flavour. I wish they *weren't* discontinued :(.

Is chris_rabbit real or a machine?

He's from 'Henry's Cat'.

Try Robert Opie. His whole life revolves around collecting and displaying old boxes and packets. He's about 60 now and he's done this since he was 11.

I have tried him but he doesn't have that box.

Out of the two Cadbury's bars, Shush is the one I miss more  :(.

I remember the Wispa with caramel was briefly (unfortunately only for that length) brought back by Cadbury's in autumn 2009 then discontinued again the following year; I would like the Wispa Mint brought back (I'm unusually someone who doesn't like regular Wispas!)

The Cadbury's Nuts About Caramel was good, as was the Limited Edition Double Choc one available in 2001.

My most favourite Mars was the 'Dark and White' which was briefly available in 1998.

Too bad Cadbury's have discontinued Astros in the UK and they're now only available in South Africa  :(.

Yes why did Nestle have to discontinue these excellent sweets  :(?

Most people remember the Toffy Trios (though why didn't they spell the word the usual way 'ending in ee'?) which were in red wrapping but does anyone remember the Double Choc ones which were in dark blue wrapping?

Why did Jacob's (a subsidiary of McVitie's and KP which stands for 'Kenyon Produce') [all three which are subsidiaries of 'United Biscuits'] have to discontinue Trios  :(?

I think it was Nestle. Cabdury's has Fuse

Yes it was Nestle; I can't believe they had to be discontinued  :(.

Why on earth did Cadbury's have to get rid of Wispa Bites in 2003? This really does give me the emoticon  :(.

I personally remember eating a Secret in 1993 (the only year I ever saw them). I too was upset when I found Nestle discontinued them  :(.

Golden Cup's were phased out in the 90's werent they?.
<DIV> </DIV>
<DIV>I am sure I was eating them well into the 90's.</DIV>
<DIV> </DIV>
<DIV> </DIV>
<DIV>Perhaps with the Wispa saga, we can get old favs back, even for a short while.</DIV>

No Golden Cups were phased out in the 2000s. I too miss them  :( (and yes I know Nestle made them).
