    A blast from the past

    Went to the garage this evening when something very colourful and in a packet caught my eye...

    It was a bag of sweeties and instantly they took me back in time to when I was little . Remember Rainbow Drops?!!!!!!

    Had to buy a packet and also a bag of Parma Violets

    What was your favourite sweet as a child......(some of us go back further than others.... )

    There was a kid at infants with ringworm -they painted his head with this purple "medication" which smelt just like Parma Violets.

    I've never touched them since

    That's well tight - it's like all the kids at school with nits had to go into R2 class and were kept in isolation until the nit fest had died.

    I love Parma Violets and we used to pretend to get drunk on those cider chewy sweets Loved Fireballs and Jaw breakers

    Bazooka Joe bubbly was great - but I never saved enough tokens to get the X-ray specs
