Phantom Sweet Cigarettes were a curious contradiction, promoting a non-smoking message while mimicking the act. These chalky, white candy sticks with their distinctive red tips offered a playful way to emulate adults, minus the hazards. Although controversial today, back in the '90s, they were a staple at every corner store, sparking imaginary games of adulthood among peers. The nostalgic value of Phantom Sweet Cigarettes lies not just in their taste but also in the way they symbolised innocent rebellion during childhood.

Little Hearts were more than just biscuits; they were tiny declarations of love with their adorable heart-shaped design and sweet, buttery flavour. Each packet promised a crumbly, comforting treat that paired perfectly with a cup of milk or tea. The distinctively flaky texture and the sprinkling of sugar on top made Little Hearts a beloved snack, ideal for school lunchboxes or a quick nibble. Their enduring popularity is a testament to their delightful taste and the sweet memories they continue to inspire.

Launched in 1985, this drink became synonymous with childhood, offering a sweet, rich mango flavour that was unmatched by any other beverage on the market. It was the go-to drink at school events, picnics, and sports days, often frozen into ice packs that doubled as a coolant and a treat, melting under the sun into a delightful slush.
