OK it’s confession time. And this might upset some people but here goes.
I didn’t really like Spangles sweets all that much. There – I said the unthinkable.
I mean I thought they were alright – just nothing special. It’s true that I probably didn’t try all of the different flavours that there were, but the ones that I did sample were just ok.
Is that nostalgic blasphemy? Or am I missing something?
If Mars brought them back now would they be as popular as ever, or do you think that you’d realise that the memory is better than the actual sweet?
Come to think of it, if they were so popular, why did Mars stop making them in the first place? (mind you that logic must fall down with the axing of the ultra delicious Pacers – they MUST have been massive sellers surely!)
From the emails that we get, Spangles would definitely rank in the top 5 most missed sweets. But is that really because they were so delicious? Or is it more because they have become so iconic?
So – when it comes to Spangles – am I right or do I need my bumps feeling?
Were Spangles sweets really any good?
