My boyfriend absolutely loved these and still does! If I won them, because I am such a lovely girlfriend, I would give them all to him!
Literally a bazillion times nicer than real fungi tastes. Bleurgh to mushroom, yum yum yum to Coconut Mushrooms!
Kaylie…it was like Coloured Sand but Sugar and came in different flavours, i never used a lollipop i always used my finger lick and dip and my finger use to turn Green Yellow all sorts…
love these. and theres 2 ways of eating them 1) shove it straigt in your mouth and just enjoy or 2) dismantle it a layer at a time making them last longer, first eat off all coconut, then lick off chocolate and finally stuff the marshmallows in so your mouth having them stick to your teeth yum.
I adore these, coconut, chocolate & tiny marshmallow in one perfect package
I remember dipping them in pepsi and chewing them slowly.
I could eat so many of these delicious sweets that there would not be ‘mushroom’ inside !!
These sweets used to be my favourite
When I was young and small
I haven’t seen them for an age
Nope, zilch, zero, none at all.
I would love to win them
To take me back to my youth
But I better share them with the hubby
Coz he also has a sweet tooth!
One of my favourites! These have to be hidden from children – it’s the law!
Love these they were my dad’s favourites
The Super Mario Bros wish they had these mushrooms!
My sister has always liked these and I can’t find them to buy anywhere but here.
Her face would probably light up if I gave her a bag of these.
i love love love these and all things coconut!!
Me and my other half got together due to a conversation about pink shrimps!
I havent had these in years were always a favourite sweet,
These were my favourite sweets as a kid!!
My partner LOVES these.
wow, I had forgotten about these! I remember going to the sweetshop and standing on a stool pointing at a large jar of these, which were high up on a top shelf behind the counter. A quarter would be weighed out and placed in a small paper bag. somehow having them in a small white paper bag made them all the more special!
So soft and chewy.
Always eat the “stalk” first. Like them so much will hide them and eat all of them myself (yes I am aa overweight greedy guts)
I HAVE DECIDED TO STICK TO MALLOW MUSHROOMS FROM NOW ON AFTER POISONING MYSELF WITH THE WILD VARIETY.
Luv them 🙂
Chewbz, here is a little ditty
I hope you think its rather witty.
I want these mushrooms yes i do
please please giz them I beg of you!
Me and my brothers used to get a 10p mixup from Dad every Friday as a treat – we used to fight over the ones that had a coconut mushroom in them!!
I am 58 and I have loved these since i was a little boy
If I won these, I’d be very popular at work as my colleagues absolutely love them 🙂
Love these, Please Enter me 🙂 x
Wow these bring back memories of having to hide them from my siblings when I bought them with my pocket money.Now i’m all grown up I wouldn’t have to hide them
Have you seen that movie SHROOMS? Unlike the naughty ickle blighters in that these little lovelies will send you right off to sweetie nirvana…I can see the Palm trees and the coconuts now…I’m really ‘mallow’ now – tell me is this Paradise 😉
I like mushrooms fried on steak
I like coconut in cake
Mixed together they don’t go so well
Unless in a sweet form, then they’re swell!
I really don’t like these as I dislike coconut….however my mum proper loves them so I would love to win some for her!
Ah coconut mushrooms, I used to charge my wee sister 50p a week to play at the summer fun club (our back garden!) then I used to go buy coconut mushrooms with my ill gotten gains
Love these not seen them for years
ooh love these little squidgy mushrooms 🙂
Lika a lazy co co coconut co co coconut tree!!!!!!!!!
I used to love these mushrooms! I liked white mice and cola bottles too. When I was a kid I had to go to Grandma’s (whilst my parents went on football with Grandad), she always had a mixed bag of these to eat after dinner, washed down with a Dandelion & Burdoch.
Grandma’s sadly no longer here (and dad is now a Grandad himself!), but to this day I can’t go passed a white mouse, coconut mushroom or cola bottle without thinking about Saturday afternoons at Grandmas. It’s like she’s still here in a way.
these are very soft love em
Mushrooms were one of my fave too! In fact, my mum used to buy them every week and I just couldn’t resist them so dad tried to catch me out by creating some home made ones…involving cigarette butts and crushed oxo cubes dessicated in coconut! (Didnt put me off eating them though!)
I remember trying to work out how many sweats I could get for my pocket money and failing.
Nostalgic? No, this morning 😀
My husband LOVES these
When I was little, oh what treats
To go and buy unusual sweets
Apple bonbons, spanish wood,
Lemonade powder – all tasted good
But coconut is my weakness ,so
This comp is very good to know
To win this lovely mushroom sweeet
Would be a VERY SPECIAL TREAT
they look gorgeous, hope they taste nice
OMG this has to be mine, i’m currently craving these little babies (7Months pregnant) lol

These look great, I would looooove to try them
I love cocanut but I hate milk. This is the perfect thing
OMG total blast from the bast. I forgot all about these until I saw the piccie. I can just about remember what they taste like….. SCRUMMY!!!!
These are my darling hubby’s favourites and I would love to win them for him as he’s always doing lovely things for me.
I remember these,me and my sister,used to buy a quarter,every Thursday,when dad gave us the coins from his brown,weekly wage packet
I didn’t know you could still get these!! My grandma used to buy them for me when I was little – totally addictive and I used to love biting the tops off (the best bit!).
lovely mushrooms and tasty please please can I have some more
look great please enter me
Tiny little mushrooms surround my feet,
Then I spotted a large one that I made my seat…
Tiny little mushrooms all in my lap,
I ate and ate them while on this cap…
Tiny little mushrooms in the sky,
You can only get those if you can fly…
Tiny little mushrooms fill up my tummy,
These mushrooms were so scrumptious and yummy…
Tiny little mushrooms STILL in the sky,
Luckily enough I can now fly…
Tiny little mushrooms floating my way,
I never thought I’d be in “little big land” today…
Tiny little mushrooms aren’t so small,
That green one there is outrageously tall…
Tiny little mushrooms start fading away,
Ok, I have eaten enough fungus for one day…
I’d love to tell you my sweet memories but they would take up too mushroom.
It was true lurve back then and its still true lurve now. More please!
Mushrooms growing in the wild
Take me back to being a child
But these ones arent the growing kind
These ones were even harder to find
Impossible to eat with your mouth shut
with delicious drizzles of coconut
Id pick them daily if i could
why cant these ones grow in woods?
Magic Mushrooms…. coconut and that other taste that I don’t know… what it is… It matters not a jot. I heart the coconut…
didn’t know these wonderful creations still existed
these are wonderful. when my gran was alive she always treated herself to some when going shopping. she was very generous and shared them with us. i only have to taste these now and i instantly think back to my gran!
These are fabulous sweeties – we used to play ‘fluffy bunnies’ with them as kids – my record was 23!!
These sweets not only remind me of mushrooms covered with snow on a winter’s day, but also when I was really young and my grandpa would buy this for me every friday when he comes back from work. He died of stomach cancer but a taste of these sweets will be a great reminder of his presence in this world and all the fun times we had shared.
He also loved poems and enjoyed writing ones of his own. I wrote one for his funeral and I will write one now:
Dear grandpa whom you were so kind and sweet,
You adored these as a bedtime treat.
I may have been young but I did see,
You may have loved these more than you loved me!
But now you have gone to heaven above,
You have left behind all these things you love.
But I always know you are at my side,
Munching coconut mushrooms with passion you can’t hide.
Hmmm, no clever poems here! Just hoping that I win them so that I can gobble down my most fave sweets and who care about all those calories?!
I nostalgically remember when I was a kid. My mother always bought them and treated us whenever we did something she would be proud of. They bring on good memories.
These sweets remind me of my nan,she always had them
My Grandad who is 95 absolutely loves Coconut Mushrooms! When we were children we would go to the garden centre at Christmas to chose a decoration and he would always buy Coconut Mushrooms! Can imagine his face if i gave him some of those!!
waaah, didn’t know you still got these. I luv em. Used to get them in pick n mix from that retro sweet haven Woolies. I still miss it now sigh.
You must eat the middle first!! lol

These, along with pink shrimps are my fave sweets! My mum craved these when she was pregnant with me (25 years ago!!) so maybe that’s why! x
My Dad’s favourite – it’s a pity my brother and I ate them before we could give them to him. If I win i’ll share them with him.
