Spangles - Aztec Bars - Bazooka BubbleGum - where do all the old sweets go and why?

Sitting here feeling peckish and was hit by a wave of sweety nostalgia... :/


What about that tobacco you used to get in a red pouch made from coconut?
There used to be about a dozen flavours of spangles - then they disappeared.
Aztec bars came (in a blaze of early `70`s publicity) ...and then disappeared again...
I`m sure there must be a hundred other examples...

Would you risk-it for a Swiss-kit?

Does anyone else remember this short lived (?) candy? I think I recall a skiier coming over the crest of a hill in the TV advert.

Any corroboration would be appreciated - been meaning to ask about this for years! Literally!! :/
