Nothing much. I do tend to pine for the old (better) days.

Oxford Bags Are they the trousers with an incredible amount of buttons (12 on the waistband and 2 for each pocket)?
I had 2 pairs of those; blue and grey. I used to wear them with, what I think were called, Penguin Shoes.
I had a picture of me taken in the Old Market Square, in Nottingham. I've recently seen the photograph and I look a complete idiot.
Still smiling, though!
Galaxy Counters I used to like Counters. I seem to remember that a cartoon owl played a part in the packaging.
Milk Tray Chocolate Bar "...each a different island in a chocolate sea..."
Oh yes! Lovely! I used to have to go to the shop and buy one for my dad. I used to say to myself, "when I grow-up, this is the first thing I'm going to buy". Unfortuntely, I didn't really grow-up and they stopped making them.
Bones crisps I remember those lovely crisps!
I thought they were smashin'. The advertisement also had the “companion crisps” Fangs – cheese and onion flavour. Wonderful.
The flavouring on Bones was so strong that it left a kind of burning feeling on the tongue.
I think that the manufacturers must have put some kind of acid – other than acetic – in the flavouring.
