    What products do you miss? 23rd Jan 14 at 5:26 PM
    I was wondering if there were any products you just can't get anymore and you miss? Maybe they don't make them anymore, or you just can't find them - other people might be able to tell you where you can. Could be anything - food, cleaning products, whatever.

    Does anyone remember a chocolate bar called Tiffin. It had small bits of biscuit in the chocolate and I think it had raisins in as well.

    Don't know who made it, probably Rowntree, I am sure it wasn't Cadbury.

    I really miss Flex hair shampoo and conditioner - the smell was divine.

    I remember this, a bit like House of Elliot but I am sure it was not that. I would love to look on you tube but not sure what to search for.
