Fresh With the Tangle Sixpence!

Of course, the big bags like this were sold in cinema kiosks. In the shop, as kids, we bought them in tubes of wrapped sweets. These sticks came in four flavours. Orange, Lemon, Lime and Strawberry. This was in retro Brit days before the name change came about.

Opal fruits! 
Made to make your mouth water.
Fresh with the tangle sixpence. 

(That was two and a half pence decimal)

Oh, the good old days!

Edward Heath and Harold Wilson making a complete pig's ear of it all. Power cuts, three-day weeks, Miner strikes, car strikes, rail strikes, dustman strikes.

However, the tv shows and the sweets were second to none.
