Sonnet BS: Chum Gum and Sugar Daddies (61* d) RE: BS: Chum Gum and Sugar Daddies 07 Oct 02


I loved Parma violets! Can you remember violet creams? I remember one Christmas buying my Grandad liquorice in a box that consisted of a liquorice pipe etc that was called a 'smoker's outfit.' How about Lucky Numbers, which were something similar to Quality Street or Roses? All the wrappers had numbers on. Was 27 the 'pink stuff and toffee' roll? I was probably brought up on Ben Shaw's pop. My favourites were dandelion and burdock and yellow lemonade, which was supposed to be good for colds and bronchitis if you warmed it up. UGH!!! Can't stick it now. This is one that nobody else I know remembers. My mum used to buy sachets of an orange flavoured drink called Spree. Somebody please tell me I'm not imagining this one!
