    I love flumps – they taste amazing and were always the one sweet I’d hate to share when I was a child! They are greay for big and small kids – the only problem is knowing when to stop as they’re so yummy!

    I have fond memories of Flumps… mainly because when I was a kid I’d get 50p for doing a chore or whatever, and I’d go to the shops and pick up my 10p sweets, which of course included the Flump! (sometimse a couple…) I liked to try and peel the different colours off one by one but it never worked. I’d just eat it. 🙂

    Flumps, what can i say. Do you know how these evil sweets are made? click on this link

    yes thats correct, poor little Posie, Perkin and Pootle are put in a blender to extract their lovelyness and then turned into miles of soft yummy sugary goodness :O( i just cant listen to that haunting theme tune, played on the flumpet, without shedding a tear for those little guys. When all said and done they certainly are one of the sweets capable of giving a grown man a world class sugar rush :O)

    Oooooooooh good old flumps eh?!
    I talked about them in my English mock exam, I didn’t know what ‘flumpence’ meant and thus I went with the obvious… Thinking it was something to do with flumps….and had a good old rant, teacher found it hilarious!! Good thing it was only a mock!!!

    Truly a classic treat. Flump, you will forever be in my heart, you yummy squishy sugary nom nom.

  12. Robin Corps says:

    Ahh man, I used to love these! It’s like marshmallow blended with awesome. They were a staple part of my daily diet. On my way home from school I always used to pop into the local corner shop and pick up some sweets and invariably a Flump was one of them. It’s a shame they’ve turned the corner shop into a hairdresser now.
