Does anyone remember these? I can't imagine that they are sold anymore but they were a weird type of chocolate - not real chocolate I think - with edible paper on it. I used to take the paper off cos I didn't like it but the cigarettes were nice. There were also white candy ones .. hard candy without paper.
I heard a bird cry, sharp and free. My name is Jordan.

I remember white cigarette lollies, I didn't mind them. I would highly doubt they'd sell those now.
We have a great TV show on at the moment which is based around the Food through the decades and looks at what Aussie life was like. It's done really well because they've taken a family and change their kitchen by decade, and each day they go through a year and cook the foods that were available, play the games that were available. The wife was thrilled when in the 70s she finally got a job. It was ineresting to see the dynamics change too. In the 80s they started having TV dinners and microwaving and suddenly the family wasn't eating together anymore. Anyway, the 80s also introduced lots of sugar in the school canteen and the small kids couldn't believe how much cakes, donuts and pastries were available to kids every day back in the 80s. Now it's all much healthier in school canteens.
The sight filled the northern sky; the imensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer. ~ Northern Lights
