    If you find yourself longing for the sweets of your childhood, and particularly if you grew up in the 1970s and early 1980s, this book is a must for you.Steve Berry s previous book of nostalgia, TV Cream Toys Presents You Pestered Your Parents for , was wonderful, although of a picture book than something you could read, but this book has clearly been a labour of love Yes there are lots of pictures of sweets, wrappers, bags, lollies, cans, old advertisements from magazines, stills from TV ads and so on, but the books is surprisingly thick almost 400 pages in total and there is a lot to read Divided into themed sections chocolate, crisps snacks, drinks, sweets and so on each is then subdivided into shorter pieces, so for example in the part devoted to chocolate there are segments on bagged chocolates Buttons, Maltesers, Minstrels , sharing bars Dairy Milk, Galaxy , individual bars Mars, Milky Way , fingers Twix, Drifter, Time Out and so on As a book it is always interesting to read, often very funny, sometimes rather emotional, and I loved it all.Not everything is covered, and you are bound to find some items aren t mentioned I was hoping to find a mention of a bar called One ...

    If this book were a sweet, it would most closely resemble Quality Street s eponymous Big Purple One With an invitingly colourful cover, we find a chocolate shell of nostalgia enrobing the caramel goodness of facts, figures and miscellany on every gone but not forgotten tooth rotting experience from our collective youth Finally at its heart we discover a rather serious and hard centre on the rather sobering subjects of advertising and marketing.Think you know crisps and pop Think again It was certainly a revelation to me that Alpine Cola achieving a brief and minor domination of lunchboxes around 1990 was produced in Birmingham and that Fanta was an innovation of the Third Reich While being reasonably generous with hard information, the authors are similarly generous with dollops of sarcasm which is easier on the palate than mere reverence Certainly what I enjoy most about childhood in the 80s was how unremittingly naff it was Naff computer games Knight Lore notwithstanding , naff TV TJ Hooker anyone and jolly, jaunty but ultimately quite naff crisps and pop If you disagree then perhaps Tangy Toms, Quatro and candy cigarettes will jog your memory.The Great British Tuck Shop is exhaustive, written with Beano esque glee but is ultimately a bittersweet experience The hand wringers did for the candy cigarette and Top Deck what big corporations did for Benson s crisps and Wild Cola What was left has fallen by the wayside as the marketing ...

    Like a Lucky Bag this book contains the very tasty, the not so edible and the rather strange gift The tasty parts appeal to anyone who was a child in the 1970s or 80s with a nostalgia filled trip back to when Cresta was cool and your mother s love was measured in Galaxy Counters The not so edible parts are the fact that the authors are obviously rather knowledgeable ...

    The thing about these kind of books is that they are pretty much guaranteed an audience, nostalgia being such a staple of modern living and, apparently, good for your health, according to recent studies and as such could almost write themselves, assuming you have your archive colour pictures sorted N.B there would have been absolutely no point reading this on my old black and white Kindle Berry chooses not to take this route, however Rather, he gathers his lovingly researched background facts, and his sheaf of pictures, and writes them up to within an inch of their lives, bound tightly together with rubbish jokes and cheesy puns that I soon couldn t even be bothered trying to get But it didn t really matter, given the no brainer food nostalgia combo.From a personal point of view, my particular highlights were Vice Versas white and brown chocolate Minstrels copycats Fresh Minty Eggs milk chocolate and mint fondant NOT a combination my teeth would be able to bear nowadays Tudors pickled onion crisps a dancing class tuckshop favourite Wall s ice lollies K9, Dracula, Finger and Funny Feet owing to a fun game pack I owned revolving round these characters , presumably a prize for collecting a million lolly sticks and the entire section on chocolate biscuits I don t think I was allowe...
