Sunday Sweets

When we were kids we were given our age in cents each week to buy Sunday sweets at our local milkbar. This was when most lollies were 1c or even two for 1c, although I do remember that 'mates' were 2c - good value, though, those rock hard chunks of toffee covered in chocolate would last for a good half hour. I remember finally being able to afford the sticky licorice 'Choo Choo Train' at ten, though the coveted 'White Knight' was still two years off. Not sure when Sunday Sweets were phased out and it's not a tradition I've continued with my kids, but I did get this sweet picture from Ruby this morning.
