Apparently Honey is the only natural food that doesnt EVER go off as it is a natural preservative in its own right. Jars of honey have been found in the tombs of the Egyptian Kings dating back 1000's of years, still found to be in perfect condition and quite edible. And yet Honey still has a best be...

There was a full bottle for sale quite recently on Ebay which went unsold for about 99p.
I almost bought it my self but I dare say the smell would have changed over the years of storage.
Many old perfumes and aftershaves come up on the bay. Might be worth having a look from time to time.

To add a extra layer of confusion to the way this thread has been steered, the FOIL was mainly red on the OUTSIDE, yet SILVER on the inside. Hence my original post wording. Anyway, this was all about the yumminess of Toffee Cup, not the damn colour of its wrappings. Another of my favourite munchies ...

Macintosh's Toffee Cup

Not the bigger bars that you could split into individual chunks (although they were very nice), but the smaller bars shaped like a dogs bone and wrapped in red coloured silver paper. The toffee in those was very soft and runny and the chocolate was quite thin. Altogether a scrummy 4d worth of yummin...

Iced Gems

I know they are still available before anyone jumps up and down. Its just that I never found them very nice. I had a battery of great aunts when I was young and they all thought that giving me bags of Iced Gems was a treat. As I was taught to be grateful for anything, I said my thank yous and I did ...

You can still buy full cream milk in most supermarkets - and I pretty sure most milkman will deliver it as well - in a bottle!
Sainsburys sell it as Jersey milk.
