Things you can't buy anymore


Recommended Posts

I was looking for a few things in Sainsburys today when up into my head popped the question..

Why don't bakeries produce Thick and Thin loaves nowadays I think one brand name was a Twinnie and another was The 50/50 Loaf.

Maybe a ploy to get us to buy two loaves instead ???

For single folk they used to be ideal

Anyone got anything they want but can't buy anymore ?

I managed to buy a pack of Potato Puffs not too long back and they looked and tasted were exactly the same as I remembered them. I hope they were some kind of nostalgia thing rather than just old sto

Strange you should say that latch, whist clearing mums house out last week i came across a green shield stamp catalogue in nearly new condition. Wondering now if it went in the bin and if it might be worth a few bob.

Jim's still on TV, still flogging the trouser press ! The best bit is when they don't win the jackpot and Jim says " this is what you could have won" - classic !

Imagine the look on someones face who lives in Latchford or Howley when they won the speedboat  :wacko:

I saw some Wrights Coal Tar soap in Wilkos and had to have some.

After getting it home and reading the box, I found it contains none of the original ingredients and it's made in Turkey.

Now there's a surprise  :lol:

Colmans mustard nowadays tastes so very different it's bland and tasteless as well, guess in both cases our EU friends have demanded certain ingredients be removed to protect us humph  :cry:
