It came in a Chewit style packet, and the sweets were a similar size/shape, were spearminty, white with green stripes. Anyone know what they were?[/quote]


Was discussing this at work the other day with one of the lads,
They were called pacers. 8)

Thank-you.

That has solved a 20 year search. The sweetness of an answer is unfortunately offset by the bitterness of unavailability.

You can buy every sweet mentioned here (possibly with the exception of Pacers) in the Sweet shop in St Nicholas indoor market in Bristol. It is amazing, I think they have a website too. :)

They also do American stuff like Hershey Bars if you like that sort of thing...

Pacers were lush. I used to pedal my Burner down into the village on a Sat morning with my pocket money to stock up for the week on Pacers, Texan bars and Quattro pop!

Nowadays is real old skool stuff- I like aniseed balls, Colts Foot Rock (mmmm) and plain Bon Bons. Chocolate wise I'm lovin the new Dairy Milk Cranberry and Granola- superb
