“Thingamajig. It’s the cousin of the Whatchamacallit: chocolate crisp, peanut butter layer, Caramel (I think), covered in chocolate.”

“For me it’s the way Now & Later used to be. They used to be very hard (like pull out a filling hard). Now they’re really soft and don’t like it.”

“Candy cigarettes.”

“Larry Taffy but not the ropes or the little rectangle chews, I liked the vending machine packs that had individually wrapped, thick squares with a green apple, grape, banana, cherry and strawberry in it. I’m certain though, if they still sold them, I’d have lost a foot by now.”

“Bubble Jug gum. I was addicted to the sugar powder!”

“Wigwags. Apparently they use to be a decently popular chocolate in Canada a couple of decades ago but they ceased selling them. Thankfully the U.K. still makes the chocolate, it took a while for me to realize that Wigwags are the same as Curly wurlys.”

“Nutchos. It was a holy love child between Ferrero Rocher and Turtles, and I enjoyed it during Christmas, its regular release season (up here in Canada, at least), for many years.

Then Nestle bought it. They significantly changed the recipe to much cheaper ingredients, which caused it to be rejected by customers, and then shut down production a few years later. [email protected]#k Nestle. They ruin everything.”

“Skittles gum. It is extremely missed.”

“Wonka Bars. I can’t believe that the Wonka empire has withered away to such an unrecognizable state. I ate Wonka Bars in the hopes of pulling a Golden Ticket “Chocolate Factory” style.”

“GatorGum”

“I live in the US but my dad’s side of the family is all from the UK. My grandparents would send my family sweets around the holidays. Fruit Pastilles were my absolute favorite but they are pretty rare in stores here. You’d have to go to a specialty store for them.”

“PB Max. It was kind of a fat, rounded PB Twix with a load more peanut butter in the middle.”

“The old watermelon laffy taffy that had the seeds”

Necco wafers are still available everywhere, so is laughy taffy although not vanilla which was the best, rootbeer barrels and candy smokes too. Gatorade gum tasted great for about 5 seconds
