    Snickers are becoming Marathons again, Starburst are going back to being Opal Fruits, stagflation is looming and there's a loony Tory in charge (of London anyhow :evil:). Where will it all end?

    I blame Ashes to Ashes.

    Well, according to the Thatcherites, the 80's were a paradise on Earth were they not? So absolutely nothing to woory about.

    OK by me. As long as I don't have to wear the cothes and listen to "Vienna" or "Gold" on the pub jukebox every five minutes.:evil:

    I never stopped calling them Marathons. Snickers seemed a bit too American to me.

    Oh gee, you Brits call them Marathons? That's so quaint!

    Bring back Marathon? Too right! Folk of yesteryear fought for this country to do so.

    As my old grandad used to say "I didn't fight in 2 World Wars admittedly just so that we lose our chocolate bars!"

    Wish all the choccy bars were the same size as they were in the 70s and 80s! They seemed to shrink, and become more expensive in the 90s.
