Aye, good old Creamola Foam! My mum and dad went to the Modern Homes Show at Kelvin Hall, round about 1961?, and they brought back a wee Hovis loaf, unsliced, and a tin of Creamola Foam, along with a fish supper from our chippy. I ate every bit of bread and chips that I got, and then washed it down with a big glass of Creamola. I was up all night, throwing up, and to this day the sight or smell of it turns my stomach. I CAN STILL TASTE IT!!!!! sad.gif

Does anyone mind the Milk Maid tablet and coconut ice bars, oh and the fudge bars too , I think Lees made them and sports mixtures , I loved the black ones.
There was a Kings sweetie shop in Wishaw and it was floor to ceiling of jars of Kings sweets, oh man I was in heaven, was a few years ago now , but I mind it still.Not forgetting McGowans Penny Dainties.

I remember Merrols, they were one of my favorites. My grandparents lived in Anniesland and I have a memory of a factory not far from there that smelled just like Merrols. I think it was near the bus garage. They used to tell me they were made there. Can't remember the name of the company. Can anyone tell me if my memory is accurate?
