My age is nearer to your children's than your grandchildren's
- I am 50 in July so remember them from around 1967 - they just looked like paradise to a child. I also remember you used to be able to buy oval shaped lollies singly as well. I remember some that were oval and quite thick. They were the nicest lollies ever. As I am typing this, it is coming back to me; I think you could buy them in chemists. They were made with glucose and quite expensive compared to sweet shop lollies. Someone mentioned Horlicks sweets recently, it was either the Horlicks tablets or the lollies we were sometimes
bought to keep us quiet.
I also remember pretending to have a sore throat to get some Galloways
- I remember they sold Galloways sweets at some point as well.
