We have an ice cream here called Golden Gaytime made by Streets which was released in 1959 when the word gay did not have the same connotations that it has today. Despite that it still has the same name today.

That's them. Weighed almost nothing but were quite thick and squeaked when you cut them in half. Nice with cheese or Marmite!

Golden Gaytime looks a bit like an ice cream from the 60s called Kinky. Can't remember if it was Walls or Lyons Maid.  Loved Walls Heart ice cream and FAB!

Hi poohbear, could you say more about Jim of Crooky Crisps? I assume your mother also knew him?

Can't comment further Im' afraid...I was just a kid and picked up bits of info from my Mothers chatter.I remember seeing him though and visiting his farm that he bought to grow his own spuds.On the left side of the Ollerton Road up to the Burntstump turn off.

Always remember him showing us a grass field of his and clapping his hands...the whole field erupted into hundreds of rabbits.

Yes that is it. I used to have them all the time, two of my favourites nuts and fudge. Used to have a very distinctive taste.

Went into pound shop and they had the Fry’s Creme bars, original, mint and orange. Didn’t have Fry’s 5 centres though, used to love the pineapple one.

According to Cadbury Rep Jim Morris 20 years ago regarding the 5 centres  the machinery that made them wore out and the sales did not justify replacing - they were discontinued

I liked the original flavour bar. The chocolate had a sort of cinnamon flavour, quite different from any other. I ought to have saved the pineapple part from the five centre bars - I thought that one was horrible.

I liked the mint one, must say I can’t remember the orange one.
