I miss the multi-flavoured Fry's chocolate creams.
Spangles
Aztec bars had a re-issue a few years ago but seem to have disappeared again.

There were fruit polos too. Is picnic still around? Not a bad bar the picnic, though all those nuts would be too much for the teefs now. Lucky bags are prolly around in some form though undoubtly costing a fiver or more.
