There used to be some sweets called Tics, they came in a tin, tiny black liquorice things - fuckin horrible they were.

Bought a tin from the chemist last week.

They now have a plastic internal cover with a tic tac style flap in one corner

Memories of the middle kiosk on Moor Lane back in the early 70's.

Used to get the 61 into town from County Grammar.

Whilst waiting for 15 up to the posh side of town.

Always bought a 1/4 of midget gems or winegums. 

Loved em .
