A lot of the sweets I remember from the 80's are sold in a certain sweet shop I know...
The likes of blackjacks, fruit salads, Wham bars, Icy Cups... I could go on but I'll leave it there.
Was at the wholesalers a few weeks ago with the wife, they have an "american sweets" section and I spotted something there that I just had to buy:
Tastes exactly like I remember Pepsi did BITD (not sure what they did to the recipe but I'm willing to bet it's artificial sweetners!) - I still prefer Pepsi over Coke but this stuff is in another league
Not sure whether it heralded from the 80s, but sometime in the 90s I experienced (it's the only word I can use...) a can of Jolt Cola - none of this namby, pamby Red Bull shenanigans, or Relentless or anything a bit bluff and bluster like that, this stuff properly put hairs on your chest - turn you into a sexual tyrannosaurus, that stuff would (props to Jesse Ventura, there...)
