Horlicks Tablets

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

You used to be able to get small rolls of about 9 or so Horlicks tablets wrapped in foil with a paper label rolled around. I used to buy them as a young girl from the local swimming pool after a swimming session. Delicious!

Do You Remember Horlicks Tablets?

Do You Remember Horlicks Tablets?

    I was 5 years old in September 1939, and associate Horlicks tablets with air raid shelters and siren alerts. We seemed to spend quite a lot of time in air raid shelters in the first years of the war, and I have a feeling we were routinely given Horlicks tablets to make the experience more bearable. Perhaps they were issued by the school? which was a primary school near Rochdale, Lancashire. Roger Hargreaves

    used to get them from the Rendezvous Café on Whitley Bay seafront, the best place, still there after about 65 or more years, for total nostalgia trip that's the place to go, hasn't changed (updated a little obviously!) and still does banana splits and Knickerbocker glories.

      Are you sure that you are thinking about Horlicks tablets?, I don't ever remember them having a chocolate flavour orthem being packaged in a bottle, Horlicks tablets were always a malted milk flavour, in the form of a flat oblong shaped tablet, they came as a single roll or 2 rolls in a small flat tin. I think that you are confusing them with Ovaltine tabets that were a small round disc and came in a small brown coloured bottle.

    Phil, I am only 45 but remember buying the Horlicks tablets. My sister and I, along with 2 friends always used to buy a packet on the way back from our St John's class. I think I was about 11 or 12. They cost 5p a packet (roll). I also love eating the dry powder - in fact it tastes better than it does as a drink.

    People thought nothing odd about eating these, but if I reveal I eat the powdered form, they look as if I had just crawled out from under a rock.

    I remember buying Horlicks tablets in the 1950s. They were sold in oblong tins, cream with blue lettering, sealed with blue tape. The tin contained two packets of oblong tablets wrapped in greaseproof paper. Loved them and still miss them. Also Ovaltine tablets in a round tin sealed with orange tape - both obtained from chemist's. Can anyone else remember these tins? Zodiac
