Rainbow Drops

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

Rainbow Drops are a brand of sugar-coated puffed rice confectionery sold in the United Kingdom, produced by Swizzels Matlow. The sweets have a coloured, sugary coating, and are sold in bags of 80g, 25g and a smaller 10g bag.

Rainbow Drops have gained cult status and have become widely regarded as retro sweets.

    I'm sure I can remember buying these in a tooth-shaped, white plastic box, that had a plastic thread on it so you could hang it round your neck. I got them from a newsagents in Laindon Shopping Centre, Essex. Am I going potty in my old age, or can anyone else remember this?
