    I remember those 'lick and stick' tattoos for your skin; that's not what they were called but I'm going with that.

    Yummy.


    Remember when you could buy a new game for £1.99


    How about getting up on a saturday morning to watch Swap Shop.

    I've never once heard of a white Vektar, I thought they only came in red and grey. The white looks cheap, yet strangely futuristic.

    Spinners - a craze that went around our primary school. We had a team from Coca Cola come in to teach us some tricks:-



    Fisher Price things. Every doctors waiting room had one of these, it was the law:-



    Global Hyper Colour tees?

    I recall the Pacers advert, Average person on the street eats one and then all of a sudden they have green stripey clothes.

    That bike looks like it should hover, or atleast have a machine gun mounted to the front for taking out other road warriors.
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    No no no... that was a Striper. It was a biggish chewy bar with different coloured stripes all down it and the guy was walking down the street doing the over-exaggerated bite and everything around him turned multicoloured striped at that point... then he takes another bite and everyone in that immediate area also goes stripey. It COULD be that Pacers and Striper had the same sort of advert though, so you could be right.

    I don't recall Stripers but the Pacers advert only the person eating the chewy sweet had their clothes become stripey.


    STRIPES!

    They always had a shit, red, fortune-telling fish!

    I miss the following;


    Slush Puppies in horror flavours. Dracula's Delight for the win.

    'Scream!' an awesome horror comic. Started in 1984 died 15 weeks later.

    Ford Capri cars. I don't have an interest in cars but these were pretty phenomenal.

    Non-CGI horror films.

    Transformers when they were still good.

    Tried looking for a Striper ad, but couldn't see one anywhere. Did find a bunch of sites with people remembering it though, so at least I'm not going crazy. Was also reminded of fruit flavoured Toffo... I loved them SO damn much. Last time I had some though, they were tiny and nothing compared to how they used to be.

    Also... Rook and Pete MAY remember this... it was an advert for Refreshers, presumably in 1977, which had Obi Wan and Luke in it... where the Refreshers pack turned into a lightsabre. Tried looking on YouTube, admittedly for around 2 seconds, and couldn't find it. I DO remember it though.
