Mainly For Brummies But All Are Welcome To Join In The Birmingham Fun & Chat
RE: Products we remember - 8
This is the place where Brummies used to chat about Birmingham old and new along with anything else that interests us.
We have Quizzes, Pizzas, Local History, News, Politics, Wedding Cake, Plum Pudding, Champagne, Easter Eggs and, above all, Respect for our fellow members.
I also remember the big old waggon wheels, they were a bit magical, the chocolate tasted different to other chocolates and the biscuit and mallow were a novelty to me. I think the paper bag was yellow, this was in the sixties, and I particularly remember having one on my way out of the Co-op club at the Yew Tree.
Only at Christmas in our house, but what a tin though. Embossed and painted and with a marvellous smell of Blue Bird toffees, nothing has ever smelled like that since, I can smell it now.
What ever happened to Blue Bird ?
I'm sure I drove past a big sign of theirs recently. Of course when I say drove past this also includes my regular trips out in Google. I can drive / walk for hours down streets I know as well as new ones. My latest addiction is revisiting as many places as possible that we have been to on holiday and seeing what has or hasn't changed.
If I drank less I would have more money left over for buying wine.

Yes Voltman they were about 6" long x 1" wide x 1/2" thick, the inside was a banana flavoured plasticky don't know what,the whole covered with that cheap soapy chocolate that my mother used to call that foreign muck.
