Sherbert fountains, 'flying saucers' (also containing sherbert, I think)  and liquorice sticks (real!)

Anyone remember the home made sweet shop at Digbeth? (Just under the place that they later buit that ugly flyover).I would die for one of those Pear Drops now. Must have been something in them that would be banned nowdays. They were addictive!

Does any one remember the old lady that had a sweet shop across from Hope street school, every thing she had was around 1 penny or 2 penny, and every school break we had, we would go over there , the only problem was that there was so many kids going there in the break, our  break was over by the time we could get into the shop,  :'(

At Dennis Rd school we had our own sweet shop and I was in charge of it, had the keys to the stock cupboard. In the break the favourite buy was "Wagon Wheels" and chocolate hazelnut bars. It was only naturel that I had to do the taste test on some of the products that I was selling  :P ;D.

In Taunton Rd. there was a sweet shop where they sold lollipops with, if you were lucky, sixpenny bits hidden inside them. I was lucky many times, or was it just because the shop keeper felt sorry for me and always gave me one with the sixpence in it, I'll never know.

I cannot remember what it was called but it was similar to a plastic pouch of cigarette tobbacco and it tasted lovely.
