Another of my favourite sweets as a kid was sweet tobacco.
Again not a politically correct name for kids stuff these days, back in the sixties it didn't matter.
Sweet tobacco was a mass of sweet sugar strings, usually reddish brown in colour.
The mass came in a small paper pouch like proper adult stuff and you took out out what you wanted to eat. The taste was super sweet, very sugary.
It had different names I think too. Sweet tobacco, Pirates' Gold, maybe even sweet spice, something like that.
Ring any sweet bells readers?
