    As distinct from generalised food ...

    Anyone remember Jap Desserts? They were different coloured cubes of indeterminate tasting sugar. My nan and gramps used to get them from a stall on Oldham market.

    Also those coconut mushroom things.

    Also that weird fake tobacco made from strands of brown sugar.

    I could go on and on and on ...

    Spanish Gold - came in a wax paper packet almost like a real packet of tobacco - no chance of that sort of thing nowadays :)
