Does anyone have a favourite, very odd candy that was inexplicably discontinued as a health risk?
From a very young age, I was "addicted" (I'll take the quotes off shortly) to Victory V candy
. I was lucky to find an actual photograph, because it suddenly vanished off the face of the Earth.
It was made from the 1800s until about 1970, and I spent all my allowance on it, but then those British bureaucratic morons took it away from me! I can't imagine why: sure, the ingredient list included linseed oil, ether, and chloroform, but nothing really
bad for you. My fondness for it was not even slightly related to the fact that I also liked to stick my nose up the school bus exhaust pipe...
