    Texan bars and pacers!!

    I used to go and fetch me and my dad a texan bar every weekend as our treat from out little corner shop!

    And pacers were green and white striped chewy mints and i loved them and got called a pacer when i started training to be a vet nurse because of the stripy uniform!! LOL

    So mainly sentimental reasons really! :thumbup:
