Maaaaaam. Pleeeeeaase.

1. Dairylea Lunchables

It doesn’t make any sense. Why couldn’t we have just eaten a bloody sandwich, like normal people?

2. And their close cousins, the Dunkers

The salt and vinegar ones. We’ll say no more.

3. Frubes

It’s Petit Filous in tuuuuuubes! So why can’t I have it mam? Maaaamm!

4. Cheestrings

Jury’s still out on whether this was actually cheese. Hands up if you crave the smokey bacon flavour regardless.

5. Calvita/Laughing Cow triangles

Having some yummy #laughingcow #cheese. #yum #food #sandwhich #wholemeal #healthy

A boring product made exciting by its triangle form. The novelty!

6. Rolo or Milky Bar ‘yogurts’

Dessert, concealing itself in the dairy aisle.

7. Babybel

Ba-ba-ba, ba-Babybel! Again, just cheese. But that wax…

8. Wagon Wheels

If you could get away with having chocolate of any sort in your lunch box, this was your choice.

9. Sunny D

This was fine by your parents until those rumours about it turning your skin yellow started. After that, it was never seen in your house again.

10. Penguin bars

A great start to the week - lovely Emma has brought in #Penguins for #Penguins! #penguinbar #classicsnack #happymonday

And everyone would quieten down to hear the joke.

11. The Muller Corners that pretty much had sweets in them

Sure, you could get the ones with the fruit compote or whatever, but you WANTED the ones with chocolate biscuit or toffee hoops.

12. Fruit Winders

Happy Saturday Morning! 🙂🌤💛 #FruitWinders #Kellogs 😋🇬🇧➡️🇵🇭

‘Fruit’. LOL, Kellogg’s – good one!

13.  Rice Krispie Squares

Another thing that you tried to convince your mother was NOT a sweet. Rice Krispies are cereal! Cereal = not a sweet!
