Stardust / Spacedust

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

I was at school during the early 80's and we used to buy this on the way home. We used to buy as much as we could afford and pour it into our mouths to see who could get the most in and who could stand the popping longest. I'm surprised we never choked but it was very funny.

    I sometimes buy a wham bar takes me back to my childhood. I actuall on ate so much spacedust that my papa kept telling me I was going to be sick and I was badly but it was worth it!

    stardust was my favourite, their is a slight difference between that and spacedust. when i used to buy stardust it was only 10p a pack and the tiny pink star shaped candy were the best as it used to crackle more in your mouth. over the years stardust changed like most sweets, and became tamer, i think the 80's had the best sweets,ie: stardust, jaw breakers, bloody eyeballs, super sour snooker gum balls, wham and many more. nowadays kids have popping candy, doesn't have the same ring to it as spacedust or stardust and nowhere near as good in taste.

    We used to give Spacedust to my friend's cats, and they would go crazy, running around the room, up the curtains and so on. Her mum never did find out what had upset them so!
