Striper Chew Bars

Does anyone remember Striper Chew Bars? I used to eat them as a kid in the mid 80's and they were rainbow-coloured, stripy, fruit-flavoured chew bars. They came in a green wrapper and I think they were 10p

I remember having a challenge to roll one up and eat it whole. Nearly choked on it but it still was good.

Bring them back.

I was the Paige boy in the advert when I bit into a bar the wedding party would change to stripy clothes. I have never seen the advert

I remember them! The ad had people that would go stripy when they took a bite, but I used to get so mad because I didn't go stripy when I ate one! My big brother's friend said that if I did a thumbs-up before I bit it, I would go stripy, so I did. And guess what?

I loved Stripers - they should make a comeback! Yes there were 10p, I had one from the ice cream van at school every day. They don't make sweets like they used to lol

Just typed in striper as was just talking about sweets when we were kids. They were great and i even remember the word from the advert "Striper 4 times the flavour 4 times the cheeewww!!!". How sad am I lol

Oh Yes my Dad used to pick me and my sisters up from Sunday school with some of these as a special treat

Didn't there used to be an advert that had a tag line.. Comes up Flavour Stripe after Stripe.

Come to think of it I seem to recall a load of old adverts!!!
