Spangles went through some changes during the 70s. They had been around a good time even in the 70s and there were about 6 or 7 flavours available.

In the 70s Mars decided to get rid of some of the flavours (like acid drop flavour and a few others) and launch new, larger sweets with hard shells and chewy centres. They introduced fizzy orange, fizzy lemon and cola flavours. They also kept some of the old favourites going like Old English Flavour and Blackcurrant Flavour but these packs kept the old-fashioned look and the new packs got a package make-over.

70s Retro Sweets

If you had to describe sweets from the 70s one word you would not use is boring. The seventies produced some of the wackiest ideas for confectionary you have ever known. From candy that explodes in your mouth to popcorn type sweets called HankyPanky, a selection of chocolates in a bar and coconut flavoured strands of chewy sugar wrapped in a tobacco type pouch called Spanish Gold.
