HERE, readers tell us which sweets they’d like to see make a return.

A bar of Old Jamaican, it was dark chocolate, with rum and raisins inside. Mouth-watering now!

Catherine Owen, Michigan (formerly Glasgow)


Fry’s 5 Centre bars with five different flavours. It was great fun snapping one to discover the lime was half in the strawberry and the raspberry ran into the orange.

Susan Ireland, Kendal


I’d love to see Golden Cups or Apple Strudel – wee pieces of apple in chocolate in an apple-shaped bag. Loved it.

Christine Ramsay, Edinburgh

*Calling our Sunday Post readers*We'd love to hear from you!Does anyone remember splurging their pocket money on…

When we visited my grandpa in Arbroath in the holidays my mum used to stock up on Creamola Foam before we went home.

Dawn Jonson, Leicester


Mint Cracknel is the treat I loved most. To have it back would be like man landing on the moon again.

Gordon Mair, Glasgow


MB bars were my favourite. Health and safety would have a field day now as the bars didn’t have wrappers.

June Dunsire, Glenrothes

Willy Wonka and the kitchen factory: DIY candy man is reviving retro sweets


I used to love Mint Bitz chocolate bars.

Julie Thomson, Coalburn, South Lanarkshire


Aztec Bars, Amazin’ Raisin Bars, Mint Cracknel and Penny Chews. Oops, I’m showing my age!

Martin Kelly, Glasgow


McCowan’s Toffee bars. So hard you had to smash them to pieces before you could chew them.

James G. Plenderleith, Edinburgh


Being brought up in wartime sweets were very limited. I loved the taste of sweet cigarettes but they’d be taboo now!

Elizabeth O’Regan, Lincoln


It would be proper candy balls. They were gloriously sweet, chewy and lasted for ever. My mother always said it was the only peace she got when we were all sucking them.

Sandra Ritchie, West Lothian
