    Butterscotch isnt for the faint hearted.
    Its your tongue that doesnt want to get parted.
    From this sticky, lasting taste.
    A quarter of these I would order in no haste.
    Memories of long car journeys as a child.
    Its my mum who would eat these but it was me and my brother who would go wild for that oh so buttery flavour.
    Chewbz do me favour please send me some and I will be all of a quiver!

  19. Lisa Pope says:

    Yes I used to get these and they were rectangular with sharp corners that stuck in the roof of your mouth until you sucked them enough they went smooth and crunch them!

  20. Linda Osborne says:

    Butterscotch, my mum’s favourites still gets them for a treat, she’s 85 hasn’t any teeth, not sure if it was the Butterscoth’s fault, if your very lucky she ocasionally shares ….

  21. Cheryl Seddon says:

    These always remind me of my Granny, we always used to see who could make it last the longest and not crunch it!

  22. Andrew Hindley says:

    Butterscotch evokes memories of the playground of hopscotch and tag and ringa-ringa-roses

  23. JoC says:

    Possibly one of the least appealing sweets to look at and get an unfair rap as oldies sweets, but they are unbelievably delicious to taste and very moorish…kids often shun then due to lack of colour and presentation – but that just leaves all the more for me 😉

  24. chris bull says:

  25. Jenny Price says:

  39. caroline french says:

    My dad always had (and still does!) a few of this in various pockets albeit slightly unwrapped and with a free amount of ‘fluff’ attached! fantastic taste, can be crunched in a second or sucked for ages!….i always prefer the suck then chew approach! mmmmmmmmm also a perfect aid to have out and about for restless children and a naughty mum trying to find a substitute for a nicotine carving on a night out!

  40. Rick Smith says:

    Delicious, they remind me of when my parents would take on a long journey. My mum would always give us a butterscotch sweet to keep us quiet.

  48. Jennifer Stokes says:

    These remind me of 12 hour coach journeys to Devon when I was young and before there were motorways. We either had butterscotch or barley sugar sweets to keep us quiet!

  49. Hazel rush says:

    Mmmm… I absolutely love butterscotch it’s so so so so sooooo yummy in my tummy!!

  50. Sally W says:

    Butterscotch conjures up memories of small rectangular sweets, very neatly wrapped individually in gold foil paper.

  51. Stuart O says:

    Butterscotch makes me think of Angel Delight and kids full of E numbers after they’d eaten it.

  52. Daniella Abraham says:

    I’ve not actually eaten a butterscotch since I was 10, I’m 31 now so to have one would be a very nostalgic treat!

  53. Ruth Longville says:

    Butterscotch…..mmmmm…. always reminds me of my Gran. She used to sit in the back seat with us as children on our way to our annual holiday in Bournemouth and she would always dish out the butterscotch to us kids before we had even left home!
