I have just received my order from British corner shop in which i ordered a couple of boxes of chocs.  Cant remember off hand what they were but hadnt noticed if they still had bounty in them. Just looked one is quality st and the other heroes but doesnt have bounty picture on side so imagine its been eliminated too.

Regarding Bounty. I wouldn't be at all surprised if they aren't just having supply/ cost issues with coconut and trying to turn that into a gimmick/ virtue.

"Cynical..? Moi?.."


As for my day. I'm having a day off..

My 'new' knee kept me awake much of the night..with pain from the 'tight ITBand'. I'm frankly not impressed. First time I reported six weeks post op, I was told 'let's not go there'..then it was 14 weeks before the physio recognised the problem and told me that it would take 4-6 weeks of exercise to get it right. 4 weeks later she decided I'm looking at 3-6 months of 'regular and consistent' exercises to resolve it. She also encoraged me to continue walking. The exercises are taking up 2 hours every morning before I can get on with my day and after yesterday's, plus a walk to the shops, I was in even more pain. rest....And a good moan ..

I have always really hated coconut from my very first taste of it as a small child.

I remember my Dad always used to bring one home from Goose fair, make a hole in it and drink the milk and then smash it with a hammer and would gnaw on it for a few days after. Yes Jill they still do make both Milky Bar and Caramac.

As an aside what is everyones favourite/least favourite Quality Street?

My favourite is the green triangle one and least is the toffee penny.

Back in the late 50s Quality St used to have a malt toffee which I loved.

One of my fondest memories of Christmas is with my cousins on Perry Rd in about 1959 when we munched our way through a tin of Cadbury’s Lucky Numbers. Who remembers them?

I cant remember Lucky Numbers Mess. 

Maybe they had gone by the time i was born in 1963?

Jill Sparrow;

My all time favourites were Milky Bar and Caramac. Not sure they still make them. I rarely eat choccies.


Caramac is still available, been in constant production since 1959 apparently.

Sold in Sainsbury Asda etc.


I had some (multipack) recently for the first time for many years.

I'd mentioned them to my nephew and he turned up with some, they didn't last long..

@nonnaByou will be saved from having to eat the dreaded (in my opinion) Bounty ones as they are made by Mars. Quality street are Nestle and Heroes are Cadburys so you wont get Bounty in either:clapping:

Thankyou Radfordee because I don’t like Bounty either, it always got left in the box. I didn’t know who made what so thanks too for the info.

Favorite has always been Crunchy bars

We had a few holidays in the 80's and 90's with Hey Arnold's Aunt in California and were always asked by her family to bring Crunchie and Cadbury's dairy milk bars for them.

going out now to do some snow blowing had a major blizzard overnight its shut everything down 


Has the snow arrived early over there Ian?  I was talking to my brother-in-law today, he lives in Victoria, BC and he was saying that snow is forecast for tomorrow, yet they have a temperate climate similar to the UK

Yes Lizzie it is earlier than normal the airport has cancelled flights and many roads are closed. It is supposed to snow for two more days but no blizzards hopefully, in Victoria it is usually wet snow the same as in the UK our temperatures are going to be well below normal at -13 for midweek thats the end of my garden until next year.
