Bought one yesterday in my local BP Station - very small but was always my favourite as a kid. (Didn't enjoy yesterday's much mind)

They've been back a while... remember my Mrs telling me some time ago.

All we need now are "Nutty"s and "Cabana"s. Oh, and "Drifter"s. Come to think of it, have they stopped doing "Spira"s? I love them :mad: but not seen them for ages!!

Are they or is it because you got bigger?

Noticed this with a caramac that I bought recently for the first time in years, it seemed really wafer thin and not how I remembered it at all.

Can ayone say for sure if chocolate bars in general are smaller than the versions us oldies fondly remember as kids?

I know they switched Milky Way innards from brown to white chocolate - the so-and-so's!

I remember when they used to be called Opal Mints (showing my age now!).

Definitely smaller, it was about the size of a Blue Ribbon when a Texan bar I remember as being the size of a Yorkie.....ps. they completely ruined Milky Ways when they changed the filling.....

There use to be a comedian who use to take the rise out of them and said it was the sort of sweet his gran use to buy him, but I know they use to be a popular variety with the kids as the were the stongest flavour of the lot.

Wagon Wheels - I used to buy one every morning on the way to school and I swear, they were massive, my nephew bought one the other day and it was t-i-n-y same with jammy dodgers, everythings shrinking!

Amazon bars, Amazin' Raisin bars, Cadbury's Toffee Buttons, Glees (like skittles), Tiger, Teddy and Candy Tots, Toffee Treets, Peanut Treets (like peanut M&M's), Riley's Chocolate Toffee Rolls (plain chocolate coated caramels, sold loose by weight, ie a quarter pound - very hard and chewy).

All sweets from my childhood and youth. All, sadly, gone now.
