2. Opal Fruits

Starburst? What’s a Starburst? In the 1980s we only had Opal Fruits, and not only was the name better but they somehow managed to taste even chewier than they do today.

You get a point if you remember eating these tasty treats before they were given the unnecessary name change.

4. Chewits

Yes, Chewits are still available today, but you can give yourself a point if you remember eating them as a wee child. And we will consider handing out extra points to anyone who can remember the now defunct Ice Cream flavor, or can at least remember the brilliant TV ad featuring a Godzilla type monster!

9. Wham Bars

10. Hubba Bubba

Chewing Hubba Bubba made us all feel really cool at school, and they were so tasty that it was disappointing that you couldn’t actually swallow them (although we knew a kid who did, his stomach must have been a right mess).

14. Dip Dab

There were better quality images available for the more up to date Dip Dab packaging, but this was the version we remember, with the rectangular rather than circular lolly. Who didn’t like dipping some sugar on a stick into some more sugar in a bag?
