Opal Fruits had lime and lemon as separate flavours.

They then in the 90's, replaced them with a single lemon/lime chew, brought in a blackcurrent flavour, and rebranded them as starburst.

When I was a kid, I used to have lots of those things... ah, what was is called again?.. Fun?

Now I'm an adult they don't really have that anymore.

Pork Burgers. I swear I haven't seen a pork burger in years in a supermarket.

The big one I've been missing is Cadbury's Snowflake, which was like a flake but the inside was white chocolate with a coat of thin milk chocolate around it. I don't remember them being particularly nice but that doesn't mean I don't want them.

By the same token, Cadbury's Dream bars. Functionally the same thing as any white chocolate you'll get without a brand on it, but being able to get a small 40ish gram bar of that just isn't possible anymore. (Milkybar can strawberry float off)

Ah but Qikz shops universally in Sainsbury's. There's your problem.

No offense man, but if you shop in Sainsbury’s you're rich. It would take me nearly 20-30 years of saving to even begin to get close to a Sainsbury’s shop.

Dreams are still produced for some Middle East markets I believe, you can probably pick those up. Snowflakes are a distant memory, sadly. :(

We get our shopping from Sainsbury's and we aren't rich. Rich people shop at Waitrose.

True Sainsbury’s shoppers would make their own pork burgers using a burger press purchased from Amazon.

I love Sainsbury's because it keeps the scum out of Waitrose.

Funnily enough, i didn't actually like them as i tried one on several occasions.

They did other flavours too if i recall.
