Whatever happened to "dweebs" and "nerds"?

Where did they go? you know the little sour sweets in the little boxes...

I've not seen them for ages and seem to have a craving...

Re: Whatever happened to "dweebs" and "nerds"?

I recall a scare with glass chunks found in the packets - they seemed to thin out after that.

My fave named sweets were from a corner shop on Queen's Road, Crewe - called Nads, with the strapline - "get yer hands off my nads"

I used to consume loads of Nerds, and Runts, and Atomic Fireballs (think you can still get Atomic Fireballs!) Neon Nerds were quality too!
