    These bring back memories! I haven’t thought about them for years and years. My Granny used to buy a quarter pound for Grandad every weekend but if my sister and I were visiting she would always buy 2 quarter pound bags so he wouldn’t have to share his! Would love to win some to share with my kids

    I’ve been waiting for pear drops to be the sweet of the week! When I was little my mum always used to give them to me to keep me quiet on long car journeys! I couldn’t moan about “are we there yet?” with a pear drop in my mouth! If I won I’d give them to my mum because I know itd just make her smile reminding her of that memory!

    I love pear drops and used to buy them by the quarter, I always remember by the time I got to school they would be all hot and stuck to the bag, but you didnt care as you just eat the paper as well. Added flavour….:-))
