Like all kids I loved sweets. Alas, I still do! One of my favourites in the Sixties were Gold Nuggets [pictured]. They were a pile of little golden bits of chewing gum [or spuggy/chuddy as we called it], which filled a small cotton bug with a neat pull-string top.
The character on the bag was a sort of prospector [no, not a moon one], a Klondyke Pete type. They were everywhere back then. For some reason the Gold Rush, like pirates and cowboys and indians, spies and astronauts, was part of our juvenile world-view. There were Golden Nuggets cereals and I remember clearly a gold mine ride on Blackpool Pleasure Beach that I went on; a crazed runaway train of a thing that zoomed through creaking joists and crooked tunnels. It may have even popped outside in the open air now and then too! Ah, what joy!
So, my 'spice' was found in a small cotton bag. What was or is your favourite sweety/ choccy/ candy?
