    Hello

    I'm wondering if anyone can help as this is driving me mad. Does anybody remember this sweet (bare with me here, my description might not be great). They were jelly sweets and came in rectangular plastic packaging. To get at the jelly goodness you had to peel back a thin layer of plastic. I'm pretty sure they were in the shape of x-men or spiderman. They smelt lush. My friend and I are trying to find them but cant even find them mentioned anywhere. Am i going mad?

    Also if anyone has any other favourites from the past feel free to post them here :)

    They used to come in many types of packets not just spiderman and xmen. Not sure of teh name as i think more than one company might have made them.. used to be 2 or 3 colours in teh jelly as well.

    I remember those! The packet front was a mould of the character correct? I remember TMNT ones and ones from the first Batman movie from 1988 (with Michael Keaton, not the first Batman movie being the 1966 one with Adam West!).

    No idea if they still make stuff like that though any more. Memories!

    Yea those are the ones - three colours in them - I think I remember them going from green to red. I've googled every possible combination of words, although i would not recommend searching for "X-Men Jelly" :eek:

    I think I remember the TMNT ones to :)

    Thanks GBL - tried searching on moon sweets/jellies/retro etc but no luck. I think they must not be made anymore - gutted

    Thought some of you might like this
