Crispy coated chocolate buttons that you tried to leave on your tongue to melt.

Chocolate Treets, made by Mars, were very popular. there were toffee, peanut and chocolate versions. The chocolate version was flat with a hard shell and chocolate centre. They were re-named Minstrels and still exist. The toffee flavour and peanut flavour were round, had a hard shell coating and a chocolate and toffee or chocolate and peanut centre.

They were discontinued, although some people say the peanut ones were coloured and re-packaged as M&Ms. I think they taste completely different.

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.
