    Had a Lion bar last night. Still good but it has changed in taste from years ago. Probably a lot less sugar.

    Never came across these.

    I loved a Drifter, had one recently and they are magic. Bounty too, love coconut. For that reason, Caffrey's snowballs were often bought.
    Wham bars. Can you still get them?

    They tasted better when they had the foil wrapper like the one on the left.

    I can’t remember star bars being around when I was younger, only saw them in the shops the last 6/7 years. Love them though.

    You can actually get them in sweets. In lovely ruby coloured luxurious wrapper. If you have a pound shop near you will get them. I can’t believe you don’t know of them.

    I loved a Moro too, only recently realised they were an Irish thing. Like Brunch, Wibbly Wobbly Wonders and Loop the Loops, my favourite ice-creams and pops.
